[Avionics Today 03-18-2016] The Allied Pilots Association (APA) has built and released a mobile application to provide pilots with easier access to information during flights, alongside IT company Sogeti USA. The app aims to provide pilots with flight data, passenger and crew lists, weather updates and manuals, among others, on their smartphones or tablets while in flight.

"The new APA mobile app has been enthusiastically received, with a significant percentage of our pilots already using it," said Keith Wilson, APA president.

Sogeti and APA began working on the app last year and first released it to a small group of users to test functionality and incorporate additional features based on their feedback. The iOS and Android app is now available for all APA pilots to download on the App Store and Google Play.
