Other than fuel and oil, there are perhaps no two things more indispensable to aviation these days than AOPA Pilot and the iPad. And now, they are together in a new way thanks to the new AOPA Mags app.
The application delivers both AOPA Pilot and Flight Training magazines in an iPad-optimized format. Digital-edition-only subscribers now have the option of reading their magazines on the iPad, personal computers, or any number of electronic devices, while digital-edition-add-on readers have the ultimate choice of print, digital, tablet, and so on.
Since the application is included as part of the $10 digital edition add-on or free digital switch, you can now have AOPA’s magazine content when and where you want it. Keep in mind that the app will only let you access magazines you have received as part of a digital subscription—you must have separate digital subscriptions for AOPA Pilot and Flight Training to read both on your iPad, but you’ll access both titles through the same app.
Once you’re a digital subscriber, using the application is easy. Here’s how:
Tap on the Enhanced Digital Edition (arrow) icon and video, animation, polls, and other unique features come to life.
Having the content at your fingertips will mean a more enjoyable and engaging experience.
You’ll find the application incredibly easy to navigate. Having the content at your fingertips will mean a more enjoyable and engaging experience as you refer back to stories in order to glean more information, watch a video, or just share it with a friend. It’s the perfect accompaniment to your digital lifestyle.
