Leaders in the aviation iPad revolution will meet during EAA AirVenture to discuss the future of tablet computers in general aviation.
Executives from ForeFlight, Garmin, Hilton Software, Jeppesen, MyGoFlight, and others are scheduled to take part in a forum on Wednesday, July 31, at 1 p.m. in Pavilion 6.
The roundtable gives pilots an opportunity to hear directly from the people at the center of one of the biggest changes in decades in the way pilots plan and make their trips. Those who attend will be able to ask questions of panelists directly.
AOPA Pilot Senior Editor Dave Hirschman joined AOPA in 2008. He has an airline transport pilot certificate and instrument and multiengine flight instructor certificates. Dave flies vintage, historical, and Experimental airplanes and specializes in tailwheel and aerobatic instruction.
The FAA encourages pilots to do a number of things in order to increase safety, but does not require them. Check out these three actions that are recommended.
AOPA President Mark Baker and AOPA Foundation Executive Director Jim Minow are challenging one another to see who can recruit the most Hat in the Ring Society members for the foundation before the end of the year.
A ForeFlight update to version 6.4 also updates a connected Stratus ADS-B receiver, enabling a new flight data recording feature.
