With spring here and summer around the corner, more thunderstorms and precipitation could be popping up. On Nov. 26, I did a column highlighting five radar apps recommended by members. My list of radar apps has grown since then, so here are another five that might be helpful in providing updated information on your smartphone or tablet. These are not endorsements of any app.
I’ve received some emails from Windows Phone users asking for their apps to be highlighted. If you have any, along with iOS and Android apps, please send them here. I’m also looking for your favorite apps covering FBO/aviation services, flight training, logbooks, and flight trackers. The complete list of apps I’ve highlighted since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.

FAA Information and Services,
Find out how to determine if an alteration you want to make to your aircraft is major or minor and how to build a case for any modification you are considering.
If you wanted to visit Jekyll Island in the early 1900s, you would have been out of luck unless your name appeared on a social registry with the likes of the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, and Pulitzers. Now, all are welcome. Consider stopping by while you are in the area for AOPA's St. Simon Fly-In Nov. 8.
This year has not yet come to a close, but my mind is on January 1, 2020. That’s when the FAA has mandated that aircraft must be equipped for ADS-B Out in order to operate in airspace where a Mode C transponder is required today.
