All in one rugged 7" Android vario, GPS, LIVETRACKING, phablet.... and much more
1000 nits screen - Octacore 2.0 Ghz - Ram/Rom: 8Gb/128 Gb - New/improved Vario
Cedric S (France), about AIR³ 7.2
″I have flown with almost everything: traditional flight instruments of course, a hacked kobo bought in the US (which let me go in the middle of one of my best flight), and finally a Samsung 7" tablet combo with XCtrack + XC tracer II.
The AIR³ is made for our activity and is the perfect answer to our needs, and without messing around with cables in all directions, bluetooth connections that crash, etc ... The price is largely justified, there is everything in it, you turn it on and you fly, period.″
Brandon M (USA), about AIR³ 7.2
″I tried the AIR3 in 1 first flight. The device is by far the best what I have seen on the market so far. The screen is outstanding.″
Bob S (Australia), about AIR³ 7.2
″I flew exclusively with the Air³ 7.2 at the Manilla, XC Camp for the last week. Conditions were difficult for Manilla with broken thermals low down until around 1500 -1700m when things seemed to join up. The Air³ vario was excellent, on a par with the XCtracer . I am very fond of the XCtracer and compare every vario to it. The screen is excellent, I would say its the best I have used. Better than my phone, Google Pixel 2XL. No problems in bright sun ; on my Advance lightness the angle of the cockpit is perfect. One of my flights was 6 ½ hrs. I fly with a Le GPS Solar panel which also has a 5600 Ah battery. At the end of the flight the solar battery was exhausted and the Air3 was at 43%. I was using the internet and whatsapp while flying (for retrieve) so realise that there are things I could do to make the battery last longer.
The newer version of Android means that I can run all my apps on the tablet. I am very happy with this instrument.
If anyone in Victoria, Australia would like to check it out give me a shout.…″
Manu 974 (Reunion), about AIR³ 7.2
″In 32 years of flights, a lot of Alti vario +/- Gps have passed through my hands (I could almost open a museum).
I have almost always been disappointed by their poorly finalized, poorly scalable software with often bugs forcing the instrument to reset in flight, with generally a fragile case, a screen that is not very readable and an ergonomics not suitable for handling in flight.
This is why I find it interesting that a company finally decides to integrate XCTrack into its instruments because it is for me the most successful flight software for the moment, designed by people who know our expectations. (...)
I was able to try the Air3. I was pleasantly surprised by its readability in flight even in direct sunlight. It is much better than on my FlyMaster Nav which is the only instrument I have kept in all these years.
The vario is completely synchronous with FM.
Nice product i keep it.…″

Increased readability & autonomy
Good readability is essential for a flight instrument.
There are different ways to improve readability.
Some devices are brighter, others use eInk/black and white screens.
We believe that there is a third way: tilting the screen to have it right in front of your eyes.
The black and white (eInk) display prevents pilots from having a lot of useful information. These screens are quite fragile.
Brighter screen means more energy consumption, if set always to its maximum…. less autonomy.
AIR³ has a bright 1000 nits screen. With the Base, you can reduce the brightness and increase the autonomy.
AIR³ 7.3 has an adaptative brightness sensor. This means you’ll always get the necessary brightness. Check our FAQ addressing these topics https://www.fly-air3.com/en/support/faq/faqs/
