Categories include Best FBO, Best Tower location, Best ATC Center and more. The winners will be announced online in April.
And speaking of Pilots' Choice... Our Latest Android Enhancements
With over 60,000 downloads and a 4.5 STAR rating, the FltPlan.com Android app is the pilot's choice.
FltPlan.com is experiencing great success with our free Android App, and last week we announced some additions to it. In case you missed it, here's a recap.
FltPlan.com's latest addition to our Android App lets you view and automatically save your NavLog and FAA Certified QICP Weather for offline viewing. In the past, pilots have been emailing their FltPlan.com NavLog and Route weather to their Android, but with our latest feature, it is all accomplished with the push of a button.
If you are a daily user of our App you will notice we've updated the main screen with color icons and a blue sectional map for a background.

Check Out Our Newest iPad Feature
In our latest iPad innovation, FltPlan.com makes it possible for you to doodle on your charts. We know that when you use paper charts, you mark them up. You might mark your route and highlight an altitude restriction on a STAR, or show a taxi route and mark an FBO on an airport diagram. Now, if you use an iPad, you can do the same thing on your electronic charts.
To access this feature go to the Scratch Pad + icon on the iPad home page.
Look for new, exciting features in the coming weeks and months.
Share Routes on iPad
Several weeks ago, FltPlan.com announced a new feature for sharing your NavLog and Weather across multiple accounts.
Now, you can share the routes of other users on your iPad, for online and offline viewing. Just click on the 'Default Settings' link on the left side of the Main Menu page.
