Do you feel discomfort during flight?
Do you need more information about what’s going on at every step?
Or, perhaps, you love to fly and just want to learn more about aviation and understand it better?
SkyGuru provides passengers with detailed explanations of most the processes that are happening during the flight.
All in REAL time!
Flying with SkyGuru is just like flying next to an experienced pilot!
Imagine sitting next to a pilot who could explain every sound, every turn, every sensation you are feeling, warned you about any upcoming turbulent areas, and just turned your flying experience into a conscious process. SkyGuru – is your personal guide in the world of aviation.
SkyGuru was created by a professional pilot Alex Gervash, director of “Flying without Fear” – a center for studying and treatment of aerophobia. The application receives information about an upcoming flight from professional aviation resources used by airlines around the world to plan their flight routes. With the help of your iPhone sensors and thousands of algorithms in the program, the app recognizes various stages of the flight process and accompanies you during the entire trip. It supports, teaches, comments, and explains everything that’s going on during the flight in real time.
The application works in FLIGHT MODE during the actual flight!
