* Internet connection required for live weather update while in flight

Recent changes:
A route can now be split into multiple sectors, each its own distinct flight but grouped together into one planned route
Georeferenced plates are now available
Track logs can now be exported to KML format for viewing in Google Earth
Track logs can now be stitched together
Airspace below the specified level (planning or flying) is now hidden when its top is defined by a height above ground level

it does not show airspaces (FIR, MATZ, ATZ, Prohibited/Restricted, Classes of Airspaces), Notams, Weather, Airfiled information even though you have a strong internet connection. only thing that works is geographical features like roads and trees. It works just fine on IOS though...edit: issue was caused by language settings of my phone. changed language to English, works like charm

Perfect! Perfect flying / planning for Android! Does a (way) better job than the onboard "glass cockpit" for safe / pleasant VFR flying!(...)

Superb for safe flight Never rely on GPS for primary navigation but as an aid to safe flight Sky Demon is superb. Giving you clear information on the airspace such as controlled airspace, frequencies, airfield information etc it is a super aid. I have run SD on my Note 3 and now my Galaxy Tab 3 8" and it runs lag free. I use my phone data for weather updates. There are too many features to comment on but well worth giving it a go with the 30 day trial then sign up.
