Vulture

Vulture

Your next soaring app for iOS

Vulture is a soaring planning & analysis application. We created the application because we want to take a look at our flights on the airfield, without having to search for a computer.

A 2-week trial period included

Planning

Import or create tasks

You can create a task yourself, or you can import it from a cub file into Vulture.

SkySight integration

Check the weather forecast from SkySight by overlaying it on the map. Make it easier to plan a task thoroughly.

Export your task

The tasks can be exported to a cup, an LXNAV Nano, or a flarmcfg file. This way you can import them into your IGC-approved device before takeoff.
