As pilots, we all know that myriad steps need to be taken in the flight planning and checklist process. This week, we look at member recommendations of five favorites: ForeFlight Checklist Pro, iFlightPlanner, FlashPass, Flightintel, and Aviation Pocketknife. These are not endorsements of any app.
Are you an aviation/pilot apps developer? Please feel free to send in your apps to be included in a future column! And I thank everyone who continues to pass along Google Play and iTunes app recommendations. Keep sending them to me here. The complete list of apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.

AOPA President Mark Baker and AOPA Foundation Executive Director Jim Minow are challenging one another to see who can recruit the most Hat in the Ring Society members for the foundation before the end of the year.
