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.
Garmin has announced an upgrade making new features and options available to operators of G1000-equipped King Airs in the 200/250/300/350 series.
The FAA has approved the BendixKing KLR 10, meant to enhance safety by warning pilots of high angles of attack.
Take a look at five apps designed to help pilots check and track the weather.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
