About Us

CloudAhoy builds flight debriefing products for pilots.

CloudAhoy brings technology to post-flight debriefing, adding value to any flight training, enhancing the experience of flying, and helps make better pilots. This applies equally to primary, advanced, and recurrent training, and to day-to-day flight operation for self-improvement, and for fun.

CloudAhoy was founded by a pilot-engineer, and we continue to keep the spirit of love for aviation and love for technology, and we flourish on the support and feedback from our users.

  • We believe that technology makes the debrief way more effective than reliance on memory and pencil and pen. We use computers for flight planning and while in the air - they should also be used for post-flight debrief.
  • We believe that objective and analytical post-flight debrief significantly increases the effectiveness of learning. The ability to relive and review the flight in a calm environment with clear brain is very effective compared with going up in the air again to relive it.
  • We believe that this is especially true in the 21st century when pilots rely heavily on automation in the cockpit, yet need to retain and constantly practice all pilotage skills, manual approaches and other maneuvers.
  • We believe that good debrief should be accessible to every pilot, including general aviation.
  • We believe that fun is an integral part of flying and embed the fun aspect in our products.

Our Story

(as told by its creator)

CloudAhoy was founded in 2011 as the fruit of merging two passions: passion for technology, and passion for flying.

A couple of years before that I fulfilled a lifelong dream and became a student pilot. It so happened that at the same time the iPhone was making its first steps into the forefront of technology. As a software developer and entrepreneur I was intrigued, so I wrote a little toy program to capture a 3D flight track using the iPhone's internal GPS and display it on Google Earth - and became addicted to it. I added more and more feature, and when I did my instrument rating I accelerated the pace of adding features, and it became an essential component of my training.

As the app became increasingly useful for me, I started sharing it with friends. The iPad came out and changed aviation forever. Two other team members joined: Tani Shavit, a software engineer and manager and also my wife, and Etan Rozin, a UI designer and a long-time friend - the three of us collaborated on many projects in the past. CloudAhoy was born.

In the years since our user-base grew significantly, we have grown our team, and the capabilities of CloudAhoy product have been rapidly expanded. Valuable feedback and requests from users have greatly shaped the development. This tight relationship with our users around the world is fundamental to our approach, and we feel blessed to have it. We have a team who all share the double passion for technology and aviation, and we are proud to create a product which helps to make better pilots.

CloudAhoy, Inc. is self-funded, and is privately held.
