SocialFlight Debuts More Features


SocialFlight, the website and app that helps pilots find aviation events and other interesting places to fly to, announced at Sun ‘n Fun on Thursday that a new upgrade to the site, version 5.0, will offer even more free features to users. “We’re adding more social features, making it easy for users to share pictures of their airplanes and their travels,” said Jeff Simon, the company president. Another new feature is a map-based point-of-interest toolbar, which provides an easy graphical way to navigate to food, lodging, attractions and campsites near a user’s destination.

“The industry-supported SocialFlight community reaches pilots through our apps, website, and partner sites in the media and aviation organizations,” said Simon. “These new features are the direct result of collaboration within the vibrant SocialFlight aviation community.” Version 5.0 will launch on May 1, Simon said. Users can access the database via mobile apps for both Apple and Android devices, as well as on the web.
