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.
Garmin International has updated its Garmin Pilot app for Apple devices with helicopter routes and obstacles along routes.
Garmin International will offer the GDL 84H and GDL 88H Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) datalink specifically designed for helicopters.
Pilots focus on preheating the engine during cold weather, but what about the cockpit? More than 30 percent of an aircraft's value is often tied up in the panel.
