Foreflight said recently that all users can now manage documents across multiple users in the cloud with its Foreflight Documents feature. With this capability any user who is connected through a group subscription can update a document and it will update across the group.
The documents feature is enabled by Dropbox, a cloud-based document storage site. Depending on the amount of document storage necessary, this will be a free signup. Once the user has Dropbox access, the process is seamless and automatic.
While the feature was previously available only for corporate customers, users must now have a Foreflight Pro subscription to enable Foreflight Documents. For more information on how the process works, r ead Foreflight’s blog on the announcement.
Flight Training Editor Ian J. Twombly joined AOPA in 2003 and is an instrument flight instructor.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
