New release features enhanced event search capabilityNew release features enhanced event search capability

More than 10,000 aviation enthusiasts have downloaded the AOPA app, which recently won an award from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.

The AOPA app is popular with aviation enthusiasts.

Web, app, and mobile developer Ascedia, headquartered in Wisconsin, worked with AOPA to develop the app, which launched in July. The Thirteenth Annual Davey Awards honored Ascedia with a Silver Award for the AOPA app in the Mobile Apps/Sites-Lifestyle category. The awards are judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, which has more than 700 member organizations of “leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of tradition and interactive media.”  More than 4,000 entries worldwide were submitted to the Davey Awards.

“AOPA worked closely with Ascedia to create a visually appealing, user-friendly app so that members could interact easily with the aviation community right from their smartphone or tablet,” said Jiri Marousek, AOPA senior vice president of marketing. “We’re honored that the app received high acclaim from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.”

The app allows AOPA members to connect with the association, watch videos, listen to podcasts, read the latest news, get alerts on temporary flight restrictions and other important events, and more.

The latest release of the app adds automatic display of related articles, event filters to refine search results, the ability to pull to refresh content in addition to various bug fixes and improvements.

The AOPA app is available for free download in the iTunes and Google Play stores.“We will continue to enhance the app and regularly add new features to ensure that we deliver a positive experience for app users,” Marousek said. “AOPA is a part of nearly every pilot’s life, and this app is designed to make it even easier to connect with us and enjoy the AOPA pilot lifestyle.”

If you don't already have the app, download it via iTunes or Google Play. Use the contact features in the app to let us know what you like about the app and ways we can improve.
