When flying to an unfamiliar airport, it’s always helpful to see what services are available at the facility’s FBO. Apps allow users to access information about FBOs around the world. This week, we look at five FBO apps. These are not endorsements of any app.
Please feel free to send updates of apps I’ve already highlighted, along with your recommendations, here. The complete list of apps I’ve written about since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
