On Nov. 18, I wrote a column based on apps AOPA Facebook fans said they couldn’t live without via a poll. I pulled more in my Feb. 26 column. AOPA members are passionate about the apps they love, so below are another five. These are not endorsements of any app.
I’ve received some emails from Windows Phone users asking for their apps to be highlighted. If you have any, along with iOS and Android apps, please send them here. I’m also looking for your favorite apps covering fuel, FBO/aviation services, flight training, instrument simulators, and radar. The complete list of apps I’ve highlighted since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
The FAA has approved the BendixKing KLR 10, meant to enhance safety by warning pilots of high angles of attack.
Garmin popularized synthetic vision with the G1000 six years ago and now offers it on an app.
Developers provide updates on aviation apps and mobile websites that handle the FAR/AIM, FBO fuel price checks, flight planning, and eAPIS.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
