Thanks to the iPhone and iPad, apps have revolutionized the way pilots fly. To that end, AOPA will begin showcasing five aviation-related apps weekly. As those of us on the East Coast dig out from the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy, this week we’ll take a look at weather apps. These are not endorsements of any app.
So there you have it. If you have any apps you think I should review in the upcoming months, please pass them along to me.
Pilot Gear and Services,
Aircraft and Avionics,
Weather and Seasons,
Apps that handle everything from checking aircraft N numbers to calculating crosswind, tailwind, and headwind components are among those recommended by AOPA members.
Five aviation apps developers make their pitch to AOPA members.
When a spouse rolls his or her eyes at the notion of another flight around the patch, here's a reward for your most adoring—and least judgmental—substitute passenger.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
