There were lots of new product announcements at EAA AirVenture this year, including new ADS-B receivers, gadgets for the cockpit and aviation app updates. Here's a recap of what was introduced.
The annual Sporty's Pilot Shop Fly-in is this Saturday, May 17, at the Clermont County Airport (I69). Three seminars will cover the iPad, from Sporty's, Garmin and ForeFlight.
The iPad is an excellent resource for those flying single-pilot in GA airplanes, but it still requires lots of heads down time to find the necessary information for each phase of flight. Voice recognition and digital assistant features like Siri might provide a better way for us to interact with these devices and provide more meaningful information in flight.
ForeFlight, the scrappy software startup that grew into an aviation powerhouse over the last 10 years, has officially made it to the flight levels. Boeing announced today that the $100 billion airplane maker is buying the Houston-based app company for an undisclosed sum.
Sporty's Pilot Shop has offered training courses for over 20 years, beginning with VHS tapes and then DVD and online training products. Last week, the company introduced the latest version of its course, and for the first time there is a dedicated app for iPad/iPhone. Let's take a look at some of the features.
Apple released a new software update to the iPhone and iPad operating system today, adding some new features and bug fixes.
