On our way to Oshkosh

Beta 3.0 temporarily suspended

We have been having great success with the Beta 3.0 program and have been hearing mostly positive feedback about it. Thats to everyone that has been participating and providing feedback.

We ran into a little problem that is preventing some people from logging in. Since they cannot log in… they cannot switch back to version 2.0 and use CloudAhoy. To enable everyone to use CloudAhoy, we are suspending the beta program temporarily . It will be up as soon as we sort out the problem and assure you can all use CloudAhoy and switch back and forth to the beta.

There is a reason it is still in beta…

It will be back in a jiffy


3.0-Beta is Cruising – and AirVenture

CloudAhoy 3.0-Beta continues to be stable, and we are happy to see an increasing number of pilots who switch to it.  Many thanks to everyone who sent us feedback (including bug reports…)

Sharing with Groups works well now, I fixed the slowness problem which I reported last week and re-enabled the feature.

Also, as promised, the new and improved Forum is now live, and welcomes discussions.

Screen Shot 2013-07-27 at 12.41.22 AMWe have a new area on our blog (accessible from our site) for Sample Flights, contributed by CloudAhoy users.  Check it out. Thanks to the pilots who shared their flights and stories.  If you have a Flight & Story that you would like to share, please send it to me.


And now – Oshkosh 🙂  Reminder:  see a previous post.

I will depart en route KOSH soon, with my friend Etan who is also a CloudAhoy team member.  For those of you who will be there, I hope to meet you face to face.

CloudAhoy 3.0-Beta, Status

To all the pilots out there who have been using CloudAhoy 3.0-beta and sending us feedback and bug reports – thank you, thank you!

We have fixed some bugs, and some will be fixed soon. The 3.0-beta software is stable and a good number of people are running it, in spite of some rough edges here and there (as is to be expected from beta software).

The biggest known issue right now: I have disabled the Groups mechanism because it slowed down the flight list. Expect a fix next week. All the other sharing mechanisms (pilot/co-pilot, Buddy, link) work well.

Another thing coming up next week: an improved forum. Until it is available, feel free to share your experience by adding a comment to this post.

CloudAhoy 3.0 Public Beta – Starting Today


Good Morning, World,
CloudAhoy 3.0-Beta is out, and you are cordially invited to join the public beta program.

We are excited, and are eagerly awaiting your feedback! Please share with us your experience.

So – start using the CloudAhoy 3.0-Beta now by clicking the link in your CloudAhoy 2.x



How is 3.0-Beta compared with 2.x?
Everything that used to work in CloudAhoy 2.x works in CloudAhoy 3.0-Beta. If something that you are used to do is not working, it’s a bug. Please let us know about it ASAP.

What’s New in CloudAhoy 3.0? It’s Sharing, and more…

  • Sharing: Flight Sharing is the the big thing about CloudAhoy 3.0. There are new ways to share flights, without having to send a link. You are invited to check out the Buddies and Groups tabs. Flights which are shared with you in that way are included in your flight list, and there are selection options in the Flight tab to manage what you see.You can use the new ways of sharing with all your existing flights. Read more…
  • Full Debrief capability on the iPad: The iPad app’s Debrief tab now has the same functionality as on the desktop, except for 3D debrief.
  • Debrief on any computer. CloudAhoy 3.0 allows you to login to your account and debrief your flights on any computer system, including iPad, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux.

We hope you will find it useful and enjoyable, we are looking forward to hearing from you.

Chuck and the team
