Fly approaches for training with Airmate and your SkyView
Neither Dynon SkyView or Airmate database are certified for flying instrument approaches. However, for training purposes only you could easily load approaches in your SkyView from the free iOS Airmate app.
This training feature is taking advantage of latest Airmate database that includes in the US and many other countries many SID, STAR and approaches procedures. You will need to have subscribed to Airmate navigation database for your Dynon SkyView and have latest database loaded in your SkyView, so Airmate app and your SkyView will share exactly the same data. To subscribe, go to Airmate Shop and select your region.
First, create your flight in iOS Airmate app by selecting departure and destination airfields. If departure procedures (SID Standard Instrument Departure) are available in Airmate database for the departure airfield, a Load DEP button will allow you to select and load the desired departure procedure in your route. In the same way, Load ARR and Load APP buttons may be available to select and load the desired arrival procedure (STAR Standard Arrival Procedure) and instrument approach.
Approach coverage depends on the country: in the USA, all departure, arrival and approach procedures are available. In most other countries, the coverage focuses on RNAV/RNP approaches and all approaches may not be available. We are working to enhance the procedure coverage database, adding numerous new approaches every month, according customer requirements (if some RNP/RNAV approaches you would like to use are not listed, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have them added).
Please note the approach support is only included for now in iOS version of Airmate (iPhone or iPad). It will be available later in Android.
