CalAir iExplore App Enroute!
As some of you may know, we’ve set out this year to create our own app for all of our pilots. The concept behind it is quite simple; fly and log flights using the app, earn frequent flyer points, and then redeem them toward future flying! The app will be free to download and only through the app can you receive daily deals or be able to participate in the frequent flyer rewards program.
The app is loaded with pre-planned cross country flights and missions that correspond to our Private Pilot and IFR syllabus’s and also includes Adventure missions that you can fly anytime. All pre-planned missions are worth extra points to accumulate and redeem.
The first version will only be available for iPads. Standby for another note within the next week or so that it’s ready for download! Another only, and first in LA, from CalAir.
