SocialFlight HotSpots include hundreds of flying destinations such as aviation attractions, museums, aviation-accessible beaches and much more. Examples include a fly-in visit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which is within walking distance of the Burke Lakefront Airport (KBKL) in Cleveland, and the New York’s Old Reinbeck Aerodrome, where visitors can see some of the rarest pre-World War I aircraft in the world still flying every summer weekend.
SocialFlight HotSpots also include aerial tours with instructions for touring interesting metro, geological or historical areas. One SocialFlight user recently added an aerial tour of Niagara Falls, complete with route suggestions and even photos.
SocialFlight HotSpots include general information, tips, photos and route maps. SocialFlight HotSpots is accessible through SocialFlight.com and the SocialFlight mobile apps for Apple and Android phones and tablets.
For ground-based aviation enthusiasts, the apps even include turn-by-turn driving guidance.
