Sporty's Pilot Shop will be hosting a free webinar this Thursday, October 18 at 8 PM EDT, covering advanced topics on flying with the iPad & ForeFlight Mobile. Read on to learn more about this presentation and how to sign up.
One of the standout features of the iPad is its long battery life - a fully charged battery should last you about 9 - 10 hours. Even though most general aviation flights rarely last that long, it's always a good idea to charge the iPad the night before your flight and start with a full battery.
Most of the major aviation navigation apps we use are packed with more features than we could ever understand. But that doesn't mean there aren't some really useful tools available if we know how to use them. Here are 5 helpful tools that are available in ForeFlight Mobile.
Imagine if you could turn your smartphone into an aviation radio with almost unlimited range. That's pretty much what the LiveATC Air Radio app does. Open up the app and choose one of 450 airports around the world, and in seconds you're listening to ATC and airplanes communicate in real time.
Sporty’s, in partnership with AOPA, has created the official mobile app for the 2012 edition of the AOPA Aviation Summit in Palm Springs, California, which is now available for both Apple and Android devices.
