See what the industry is saying about AltitudeAlert V3...

So what is AltitudeAlert V3?

AltitudeAlert V3 harnesses the power of your device’s barometric sensor, delivering incredibly precise altitude data. Coupled with a simple pilot designed flexible alerting system, AltitudeAlert is the first App to bring critical altitude alerting capabilities to ANY pilot.

What’s new?

  • New ALT HOLD Mode is specifically designed for VFR pilots requiring virtually no setup. Just tap the button and AltitudeAlert will monitor your current altitude. This mode is great for student pilots, formation flying, and pilots of vintage, ultralight, and light sport aircraft with minimal instrumentation.
  • Apple Watch Integration! V3 now adds haptic feedback to its alerting engine (requires iPhone).
  • Never miss an altitude assignment again. In SELECTOR Mode, Set the altitude and V3 alerts you prior to reaching it and again when you acquire it. Spoken alert announcements are customizable. Choose from a single chime or chime plus altitude remaining to selected altitude.
  • Need to shoot an approach? No problem! In SELECTOR Mode, set the minimums and V3 will alert you 100′ above minimums and again at minimums.**

**Barometric sensor required (see HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS below).

  • New pricing model allows you to try the V3 out for 30 days FREE!

Choose from two subscriptions based on how much you fly:

$1.49/Monthly USD or $12.99/Annually USD*

* Payment will be charged to your Apple ID account at the end of the free trial period. Your subscription automatically renews unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period.

No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during and active subscription period.

APP FEATURES (Check this out!):

• Alerting for supplemental oxygen use for both pilot and passengers.

• Instrument Approach Minimums Alerting.**

• Automatic ground reference alerting at 1000′ and 500′ above touchdown with landing gear alerts.

For iPads and iPhones WITHOUT a barometric sensor. V3 uses GPS Altitude based alerting. AltitudeAlert uses a special algorithm to correct for GPS altitude error.



All iPads need to have Wifi + Cellular (Wifi ONLY requires an EXTERNAL GPS* connected to the iPad such as Bad Elf Pro).

* Appareo Stratus 1/2/3 and uAvionix Sentry External GPS Not Supported at this time.

To use the barometric features of the app (iPads that DO have the barometric sensor):

• iPad Mini 4 or newer
• iPad Air 2 or newer
• iPad 5th Generation or higher
• iPad Pro (any size) or newer

Minimum hardware requirements for GPS based alerting ONLY (iPads that do NOT have the barometric sensor):

• iPad 4th Generation or older
• iPad Mini 3 or older
• iPad Air

Apple Watch:

• Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) or newer


To use the barometric features of the app (iPhones that DO have the barometric sensor):

• ALL iPhones EXCEPT, iPhone 5s, SE.  Older iPhones NOT SUPPORTED.

If you have an iPhone 5s or SE, AltitudeAlert will be limited to GPS Based alerting (See the User Guide for details).

General Guidelines:

*** PLEASE NOTE, AltitudeAlert V3 is a universal app for both iPad and iPhone.  AltitudeAlert for iPad V2 and AltitudeAlert Mini V2 are separate apps and sold SEPARATELY.

AltitudeAlert SELECTOR Mode is intended for use in aircraft without a panel mounted altitude preselector/altitude alerter. If you have a panel mounted altitude preselector/altitude alerter, this App may be duplicating functionality you already have.  However, ALT HOLD mode is a simplified mode that is perfect for ALL Pilots regardless of any installed panel alerters.

Barometric pressure sensing features will NOT work correctly in PRESSURIZED aircraft. In this case, use GPS based alerting and reference the User Guide for more info.
