(CalPilots Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting idea to get you out flying more)… SocialFlight, a free mobile app that aims to bring pilots together by providing an easy source of information about aviation events, has grown to 15,000 users since its launch just nine months ago, founder Jeff Simon said at Sun ‘n Fun on Tuesday. The app has also evolved to version 3.0. “We’re adding 1,000 users a month,” Simon said, “and the database users are adding 10 to 15 events a day. What we hear from users is, ‘I’m flying more.'” Simon said he hopes the app will help the pilot community to grow and encourage pilots to fly more often, by making it easy to find a nearby event to fly to. Simon also announced that AVweb, Kitplanes, and General Aviation News have signed on as partners to bring SocialFlight’s utility to their readership, both in print and online.
