Aircraft Horizon


NOTICE: This app is heavily dependent on your devices available hardware sensors, version of the Android operating system and last but not least, your device vendors software. For this reason, the app can behave with different results on different devices.

Aircraft horizon is the most advanced artificial horizon on the marketplace.

It fuses data from your devices accelerometer, gyro and magnetometer sensors to provide you with accurate pitch and roll information depicted as a typical aircraft artificial horizon.

Features:
- Sensor fused, accurate pitch and roll via internal accelerometer, gyro and magnetometer sensors
- Linear acceleration compensated - it is accurate whilst moving (with appropriate sensors)
- Automatically selects the best available sensors to use from those available on your device
- Filtered, smoothed and reactive display - no jitter or jumping!
- 'Pitch level' levels the horizon to your installation
- Supports multiple screen resolutions
- Supports display in both portrait and landscape orientations

Usage:
Aircraft Horizon is very simple to use. Pitch and roll is dynamically shown when you move your device. Using the menu, you can pitch level based upon your installation, switch between portrait and landscape modes and toggle debug data on and off.

I'm a professional software engineer, part-time android developer and passionate private pilot so would love to hear your thoughts, feature requests and bug reports.

Doesn't work on Razr but works great on LG G2 Didn't work on the Razr but works great on my new LG G2. Even in the air!

It works as a smart level On a Samsung Galaxy it doesn't work in an airplane. I already knew which way the floor was. Quite nice for measuring angles on the ground.

Works great on my galaxy tablet, but won't work at all on my note with 4.2.1 :-(

Does not work well in accelerated environment I tried it in the helicopter. It seems to work well for initial roll into turn, but it adjusts to the 'new vertical' in line with the load factor too quickly. So during a rate one turn it will seem to think the aircraft's floor is now 'down' within only a few seconds. Use only as a toy.
