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.
Pilot Safety and Skills,
Pilot Gear and Services,
Aircraft and Avionics
Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
Five aviation apps developers make their pitch to AOPA members.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
