The Avilution standard subscription service, quite possibly the best $4.95/month or $54.95/year a pilot can spend, provides access to data from a variety of sources including FAA and NOAA publicly available information as well as other proprietary data collected by Avilution. Sign up for the premium subscription with Geo-referenced approach plates and taxi diagrams for $114.95/year. Subscriptions augments some separately purchased applications (like QuickWeather where it gives access to instrument procedures when connected to the Internet) and is a requirement for other applications like AviationMaps where the subscription is required to download chart, airport and procedure data for offline use, as well as to download Geo-located weather information for use while connect to the Internet.

How many subscriptions do I need?
Once purchased, subscriptions are authenticated using the Google account associated with your Android device. A single standard or premium subscription covers all subscription features of all Avilution products for one person. Please note that some applications that don’t require a subscription to operate are available as a $4.95 one-time purchases in Google Play (e.g. WeightAndBalance and QuickWeather).
Once you’ve purchased your subscription through an application (like AviationMaps), you simply use the same credentials to activate the subscription within another application (like QuickWeather as well). There is no need to purchase a second subscription. If you use Avilution products on both your Galaxy Tab and your Nexus One, for example, you still can use just one subscription for both products. However, if you are a flight department, for example, and you have multiple pilots using Avilution applications, you should purchase a subscription for each pilot or contact us to make other arrangements.
How do I access subscription features?
Most features are accessed by activating the subscription within the applications themselves. AviationMaps lets you choose an account already created on the device, which must also be associated with your Google Wallet account.
Within AviationMaps, select “Reset Subscription” at anytime to make sure the application is being associated with the proper device account. “Reset Subscription” simply refreshes your subscription info and does not cancel your subscription. If you ever suspect a billing or subscription error, contact us and we will assist you in resolving the problem immediately!
Subscribers can also login to their own subscriber portal where they can access additional subscriber features and download their SkyTracker logs for example.
How do I cancel my subscription?
If for any reason the subscription doesn’t meet your expectations, please let us know what we can do to improve the product! If you still wish to end your subscription however, it can be cancelled at anytime through Google Wallet using the link provided in the original purchase receipt from Google, or by contacting us with your original subscription order number or your gmail account name.
