Users of general aviation events coordination app SocialFlight can now integrate their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
With a single click, users can automatically publish more than 5,000 SocialFlight events across the country directly into their personal Facebook and Twitter accounts. The events are then promoted to all of the users’ followers on both platforms.
The free SocialFlight app, available on iTunes and Google Play, offers a calendar and map of general aviation events including flyins, airshows, pancake breakfasts, conventions, FAA Safety Seminars, and more. The app displayed more than 5,000 events in 2013.
Users can search for events, add events, chat, upload photos, get email notifications, send event notices to their friends, and even add events automatically to their Google or Outlook calendar.
In addition, SocialFlight provides users with a personalized Weekly Event Planner, reaching out to them each week via email, informing them about the upcoming events in their local area and motivating them to get out and fly.
