When flying to an unfamiliar airport, it’s always helpful to see what services are available at the facility’s FBO. Apps allow users to access information about FBOs around the world. This week, we look at five FBO apps. These are not endorsements of any app.
Please feel free to send updates of apps I’ve already highlighted, along with your recommendations, here. The complete list of apps I’ve written about since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
Pilot Gear and Services,
Pilot Safety and Skills,
Aircraft and Avionics,
Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
Five aviation apps developers make their pitch to AOPA members.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
