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.
Flight Training Editor Ian J. Twombly joined AOPA in 2003 and is an instrument flight instructor.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
