Now that this apps-of-the-week column is gaining momentum, I’ve received some great emails from members recommending their favorite apps. This week I’m highlighting apps that can be used for flight planning, navigation, and glideslope indications. We’ve explored some well-known apps in previous weeks. These are lesser known products that folks have told me about. We haven’t flight tested these, but thought you might like to explore some apps used by your fellow AOPA members.
In my Dec. 18 column reviewing logbook apps, I mentioned Pro Pilot. They sent a note letting me know that the Web application of their app is available for free. Pilots can sign up here. So that’s it for this week. If you have any iPad/iPhone/Android apps you think I should review in the upcoming months, please pass them along to me here. And thanks to everyone who has sent in suggestions.
Technically Advanced Aircraft,
Safety and Education,
The FAA has asked the National Transportation Safety Board to review a judge’s ruling reversing a fine it levied in an unmanned-aircraft case.
The Tucson Soaring Club is trying to grow the sport by training the next generation of glider pilots.
Preheating is about far more than just oil temperature. Proper preheating involves heating the entire engine, so that all critical engine parts can be brought into the ‘safe’ temperature range.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
