I did a poll last week on the AOPA Facebook page asking members to name one—and only one—iPhone/iPad/Android aviation-related app they could not live without and why. This will become a regular feature; below are the first five. These are not endorsements of any app.
Look for AOPA FlyQ EFB, released this week and available for a free 30-day trial, to join the list soon.
That’s what I have for this week. If you have any iPad/iPhone/Android apps you think I should review in the upcoming months, please pass them along to me here. And thanks to you all for the kind notes!

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)?
After a complete electrical failure during an initial climb from the departure airport, the pilot of a Beech King Air 200 learned a valuable lesson from a simple but costly omission.
Propeller pioneer Robert Hartzell is among four people who will be inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in 2015.
