On March 19, I highlighted digital checklist apps. It turned out to be a very popular list, so now we offer another five checklist apps recommended by members. These are not endorsements of any app.
Audio CoPilot ($2.99 in iTunes): Users of this iPhone/iPad app can record their checklists and replay the steps into a headset via Bluetooth or hard wire. Users can include an unlimited number of folders for different aircraft types.
CheckMate (free in iTunes and Google Play, but $14.99 for each aircraft type): This smartphone app was designed to standardize as much as possible checklists across all aircraft. Features include slider control to navigate through list sections; mandatory items that must be checked before moving to the next step; and the ability to show all speeds in knots indicated airspeed or miles per hour.
Avilution Checklists ($2.95 in Google Play): This smartphone app helps and encourages users to create checklists edited first on computers. It will also read back the checklist.
Flight List Plus (free in Google Play, but an no-ad version is available by donation): Users of this smartphone/tablet app can create, customize, and share checklists for any airplane and check off each item as they go. Users can also share checklists via email or any other sharing app and import other checklists with two clicks of a button.
AirCheck Aviation Checklist ($1.99 in iTunes): This iPhone app lets users to create and use checklists for any aircraft. Users can store hundreds to use anytime they fly. Aircraft available include ATR; Cessna 172, 210, T206H, and 182; Piper Archer, Arrow, Navajo Chieftain, and Saratoga; Beechcraft Baron 58, Baron 55, A36, and V35B; and Diamond DA40 with G1000 and DA20. Users can also create checklists online and download them to AirCheck.
I’m looking for fuel, FBO, or aviation services apps, so please pass them, along with any others, my way here. I want to make sure that the Android users continue to be represented in this column, so please keep the Google Play app recommendations coming! The complete list of apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
AOPA eNewsletter and Social Media Editor Benét J. Wilson joined AOPA in 2011. She is working on her private pilot certificate.
AOPA expressed concern in a meeting with town officials from East Hampton, New York, that restrictions proposed to curb airport noise “overwhelmingly” generated by transient commercial flights would unfairly burden traditional airport users.
The FAA on Feb. 23 issued a special airworthiness information bulletin recommending preflight inspection of Robinson R44 and R44 II main rotors.
AOPA told lawmakers that a tax-abatement bill introduced in Nevada would stimulate aviation business and make more services available to members.
