Airports, weather, flight planning: Now on Android
AOPA has released the Android version of its popular FlyQ smartphone app. FlyQ Pocket, free to AOPA members, provides detailed airport information, aviation weather, and flight planning capability.
“Our members have been asking that we release an Android version of the app. We launched the Apple edition of FlyQ Pocket earlier this year and we are pleased to now make it available on another popular platform,” said Chris Ward, AOPA vice president of eMedia.
Developed in partnership with Seattle Avionics, AOPA FlyQ Pocket includes the AOPA airport directory information—providing vital details on more than 5,300 public-use landing facilities; 7,000 fixed base operators (FBOs) and aviation-related businesses; and more than 55,000 restaurants, attractions, and transportation services.
FlyQ Pocket also delivers national, regional and local weather information, including the latest METARs, TAFs, radar, and more. The app provides users with simplified flight planning that requires only a flight’s origination and destination points. The application will then optimize the route based on forecast winds aloft and aircraft performance parameters.
An active AOPA membership and an AOPA website username and password are required to use FlyQ Pocket. Find more information online.
