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.

MVP Aero is developing a $189,000 light sport amphibious seaplane that doubles as a camper and is expected to fly in 18 months, with deliveries in 2017.
AOPA is testing whether aircraft ownership can be more affordable than many people believe with the development of “Reimagined Aircraft.”
Over the past several years, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) developed its digital flight planning tools into a suite of products that put flight planning capability, airport directory information and aviation weather in pilots’ hands. AOPA partnered with Seattle Avionics to create FlyQ EFB, an electronic flight bag (EFB) iPad application, and FlyQ Pocket, a smartphone application.
