Since the weather has been fluctuating from snow to rain, from below-freezing to spring-like temperatures, now is a good time to review apps that track the weather. AOPA members are very passionate about their weather apps, and below are the top five requests I’ve received. These are not endorsements of any app.
What apps do you use to search for the best fuel prices? Please send them my way here. Feel free to send along any other pilot/aviation apps you can’t live without. Thanks to everyone who continues to pass along their Google Play and iTunes app recommendations. The complete list of apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.

Helicopter training is generally very safe. So why do run-on takeoffs and landings feel so wrong?
New aviation scholarship applications are open, and some entry deadlines are quickly approaching. Plus find out who has recently awarded scholarships.
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.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
