As I continue my personal journey as a student pilot, I’m always looking for any tip, trick, or technology that will help me in the learning process. To that end, there are myriad apps that can help do just that. Below are five handy apps submitted by AOPA members. These are not endorsements of any app.
Do you have a fuel, FBO, or aviation services app that you enjoy using? Please pass them, along with any others, my way here. I want to make sure that the Android users continue to be represented in this column, so please keep the Google Play app recommendations coming! The complete list of apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
Pilot Gear and Services,
Pilot Training and Certification,
Aircraft and Avionics
Contemplating IFR flight scenarios for airports like Delta, Utah, is excellent review for any instrument pilot. That's because briefing for a flight into and out of Delta covers bases unlikely to be encountered on your next two-hour tour of your home field approaches.
What’s your heading?” Rare is the student pilot who hasn’t let distraction, or turbulence, spoil a slick stint of steady flying. Then you vow to do a better job next time of keeping track of the messages your instruments are displaying.
Helicopter training is generally very safe. So why do run-on takeoffs and landings feel so wrong?
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
