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.
Around the World Flight,
Aircraft Power and Fuel,
Red Bull Air Racing has returned for 2014, with Paul Bonhomme, twice a world champion of past years’ competitions, claiming a victory.
AOPA President Mark Baker flew four women and girls on two flights March 4 as part of Women of Aviation Worldwide Week activities designed to introduce more women and girls to aviation.
The FAA has approved the BendixKing KLR 10, meant to enhance safety by warning pilots of high angles of attack.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
