Pilot Profile Essentials™

Connecting Aviators is the only app with pilot profiles unique to general aviation. You can display your aviation achievements and see other pilots’ profiles and ratings. Aviation information important to pilots is organized all in one app.

You have choices about your profile information, such as, your home airport, aircraft, ratings, flight hours, and aviation memberships. You don’t have to provide info, but your profile helps you get more from our Services, including helping pilots find you and relevant member event notifications.

Connecting Aviators’ mission is to help pilots connect. Central to this mission is our commitment to be transparent concerning the data we collect about you, how it is used and with whom it is shared.  Additional information is described in our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.

Where Pilots Connect™

In the United States, within a population of 328 Million there are only 644,000 pilots. So, it has not been easy to connect with general aviation pilots – until now.

Connecting Aviators makes it easy. In map view, sort by pilots and tap the pilot icon at your home airport. A list of member pilots will display, and you can send a connect invitation or go to your Connections screen and send an invitation a friend.

Organize and sort all your pilot connections and their key information in one place.

  • Meet new pilots
  • Organize your pilot contacts in one place
  • Sort by aircraft type, certificate, airport, etc. 

Home Page

Your “landing” or home page displays information based on the airport entered in your pilot profile and from your connections.  Each landing facility is a unique communication channel for that local airport and community.  If you want to follow more airports, upgrade from free to a paid subscription.

All 19,000 United States FAA landing facilities are included in Connecting Aviators API, for example Airports, Balloonports, Gliderports, Heliports, STOLports, Seaplane Bases and Ultralight Facilities.

“Birds of a feather.” Want to meet new friends, see unique aircraft and enjoy more flying?  Connecting Aviators makes it easy to find or create events with the app feature iSorties™.

iSorties™ allows pilots to post a fly-in notice and track responses. You can send the notice to specific individuals or simply share with just your Connecting Aviators® contacts.  The notice is displayed in map and home airport view, but for those not on your list the details are limited.

Glider pilots enjoy the group sport called soaring.  With iSorties™ you can create a soaring notice for free and verify key participants’ responses.  Easily confirm glider pilots, wing runners, ground support and aero-tow attendance.  Each person’s response is visible to the group.  And, updates or changes are received as real-time notifications so everyone stays the same page. 

Connecting Aviators not visible to the general public, so iSorties™ gives you more control over who sees your post.  Flying notices on public social media sites can be problematic. Why take the risk? 

  • Announce a local flying event
  • Join pilots at a lunch fly-in
  • Find Member Only Events
“Join Connecting Aviators for free and focus on what you love.”
