This week I dip into my folder for five apps that AOPA members said, via Facebook and Twitter, they could not live without. They range from apps that help with pilot training to one for glider pilots to one that handles flight planning. These are not endorsements of any app.
I’m currently looking for your picks for student pilot and fuel apps, but will take any other apps you suggest. Please send them my way here. I appreciate all the Google Play and iTunes app recommendations—keep them 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.
Propeller pioneer Robert Hartzell is among four people who will be inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in 2015.
Congress has passed an omnibus spending bill that keeps the FAA, and other government agencies, funded through September 2015.
Garmin has updated the GDL 69 datalink receiver to take advantage of the SiriusXM G4 network, providing pilots with weather data and music.
