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