A member recently inquired what apps pilots on staff at AOPA use. Many of us have smartphones and tablets, so when I asked our pilots to name some of their favorite apps, they responded. This will be the first of several occasional columns that will answer that question. This week, five of AOPA’s pilots weigh in on LiveATC, AirWX, Aviation Weather, Quickweather by Avilution, and Flight Check. These are not endorsements of any app.
Please continue to pass along your Google Play and iTunes app recommendations to me here. The complete list of apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
