The 2011 Bahamas and Caribbean Pilot’s Guide is now available on Apple’s iPad. The guide, which has been published continuously since 1979, offers some nice features on the tablet.
In addition to the large photographs, airport, customs, and travel information that the guide has become known for, the iPad version also has a robust search capability. This makes it more user-friendly and easier to work with. There is also a bookmark feature for the user’s favorite airports.
The guide features an aerial photograph of every airport in the Bahamas and Caribbean. There is also information on required documentation and fees; phone numbers; entry procedures for all areas, including the U.S.; and fuel availability.
The application is available from Apple’s App store for $49.95. It’s also still available in print for $56.95; it can be purchased online.

A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.

Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
