Apple announced the latest software updates for iPhone and iPad at their annual developer conference this week. Here's a look at the new features pilots will be most interested in and why they matter.
Unlike most GA pilots, commercial operators and those flying large turbine multiengine aircraft require FAA approval to use the iPad to replace paper charts. A new service from Sporty's takes care of the approval process for a hassle-free transition.
One of the hottest industries in the world right now is Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), often called drones. The FAA is working to help pilots in this segment with a new app called B4UFLY, designed to let users know if it is safe and legal to fly a a drone in their current or planned location.
Apple today released a small update to iOS 6, available to download and install directly from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.
