Available exclusively to AOPA members, AOPA GO delivers essential flight planning tools—AOPA Airports Directory, AOPA Weather and a select set of AOPA Flight Planning features in the palm of your hand.
AOPA GO is a convenient pre-flight planning tool, allowing pilots to search the industry’s most comprehensive airport directory; create, edit and file flight plans; and check a diverse gallery of aviation weather charts. Best of all, AOPA GO syncs all pilot information, aircraft profiles, flight plans, and user waypoints with the AOPA Flight Planner. Large text and different color themes makes the information easy to read in all lighting conditions. Whether you plan your flight at your desk or on the ramp, you’re covered with AOPA.
AOPA Airports Directory
AOPA GO uses your device’s physical location to identify the nearest airports, heliports, and seaplane bases. You can see all the most critical information about each at first glance or drill down to more detailed information with a single tap of the screen. The app also allows you to search for an airport by name, ident, or location and save your favorites for quick access. All the information you need about an airport is readily available—from communications and operations to fuel providers and other services available on the field and nearby.
AOPA Weather Charts
AOPA GO Weather is designed to provide “best of breed” aviation weather information by compiling the best sources available into one resource. With information and images from Jeppesen, Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), pilots get a complete picture of the weather that could affect their flight. Quickly review the METARs and TAFs closest to your location right on the main Weather screen, or choose from a gallery of national or regional weather chart images. You can also see current and forecast weather conditions along your route of flight using the Route Weather feature. Adverse weather conditions are color-coded based on severity to be more noticeable on METAR and TAF reports.
AOPA Flight Planning, powered by Jeppesen
No matter if you are creating a new flight plan from scratch, or pulling up a saved route to file for flight, AOPA GO has you covered. Built on the same powerful Jeppesen flight planning engine as the AOPA Flight Planner, the app allows you create, edit, and file flight plans and get a weather briefing using CSRA DUATS or Leidos Flight Service. Users of the AOPA Flight Planner can also include any of their saved user-defined waypoints in a flight plan.
AOPA GO v 1.6.1 is a minor update with the following changes:
Dew Point – The dew point temperature in METARs is now displayed in both Celsius and Fahrenheit.
Other minor bug fixes and enhancements.
Ratings and Reviews
Very difficult and not intuitive. Been experimenting for over an hour and yet to be able to load a flight plan and get associated weather. TAF not shown for all airports that have TAF’s. A TAF will be shown for an airport further away than the closest airport with TAF reporting.
Very anxious to use the APP as a user friendly alternative for a full 1-800-wxbrief in areas in areas without good internet access. WX brief requires to much bandwidth to be useful in many areas. I do like the ease of getting in motion radar images. Keep working on it; could be a great and useful tool.
The app should be the first “go to” app for pilots' “go/no go” decision making. Why? First of all, it's a great “overview” tool, and secondly, I'd wager a bet that most of you pilots that are active run Foreflight of Garmin Pilot, anyway.
In fact, most pilots run multiple apps because there's no such thing as a “magic wand” app that solves every problem for every situation for every pilot.
Sure, for “low tier, in-the-weeds” analysis, there are more appropriate apps. But for the high-level overviews, I rank this app as top-shelf.
Used a few times in the past to review weather and file a flight plan. Recently app stopped working because it requires a download of current airport data, yet cannot download because the download page is blank. Please fix bugs!
