Since its introduction, the AOPA Flight Planner has undergone steady enhancements with an eye on making flying safe, economical, and more fun, according to AOPA officials.
In recent months, a predictive weather tool was added, along with airport filters that help pilots select an intermediate stop along a route.
“We’re listening to our members,” said Eric Rush of AOPA’s flight planning products team, “and a popular request was integration with the Garmin Pilot app. Today we’re happy to announce that we’ve added that to our suite of supported apps.”
“The key is that our flight planner works with many different EFB apps so there’s a sense of collaboration rather than competition,” said Rush. “Currently, AOPA’s flight planning software will work with five of the most popular EFBs out there.”
