Going through a checklist before taking to the skies and during flight is a must. In the past, pilots relied on paper/laminated checklists, but with the advent of smartphones and tablets, checklists have become digital. This week, AOPA highlights five checklist apps recommended by members. These are not endorsements of any app.
I’m running short of Android apps, so please send me your recommendations here. I’m also still looking for fuel, FBO/services apps, along with pitches from aviation apps developers. The complete list of apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
AOPA eNewsletter and Social Media Editor Benét J. Wilson joined AOPA in 2011. She is working on her private pilot certificate.
Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of airports and state advocacy, brought Indiana aviation community members up to date on the association’s initiatives.
Standardized training offered by Cirrus is now accepted by OpenAirplane, thanks to an agreement between the companies.
Here’s a riddle: What job requires a private pilot certificate, but never asks you to leave the ground?
