AWARD-WINNING AOPA APP REACHES 10,000 USERS

FREDERICK, MD – The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) app has been downloaded more than 10,000 times and was recently honored with a Silver Award at the Thirteenth Annual Davey Awards in the Mobile Apps/Sites-Lifestyle category.

Web, app, and mobile developer Ascedia, headquartered in Wisconsin, worked with AOPA to develop the app, which launched in July. The app allows pilots to connect with AOPA, watch videos, listen to podcasts, read the latest news, get alerts on temporary flight restrictions and other important events, and more.

“AOPA worked closely with Ascedia to create a visually appealing, user-friendly app so that members could interact easily with the aviation community right from their smartphone or tablet,” said Jiri Marousek, AOPA senior vice president of marketing. “We’re honored that the app received high acclaim from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.”

The latest release of the app adds automatic display of related articles, event filters to refine search results, the ability to pull to refresh content in addition to various bug fixes and improvements.

“We will continue to enhance the app and regularly add new features to ensure that we deliver a positive experience for app users,” Marousek said. “AOPA is a part of nearly every pilot’s life, and this app is designed to make it even easier to connect with us and enjoy the AOPA pilot lifestyle.”

If you don’t already have the app, download it via iTunes or Google Play. Use the contact features in the app to let us know what you like about the app and ways we can improve.
