SocialFlight has added a new feature called Burger Flight, which makes finding a terrific airport restaurant as easy as tapping on a screen. Burger Flight is included in SocialFlight's free app, and it shows airport restaurants as burger symbols on the map. Thousands of airport restaurants are featured on the moving map.

In addition to the location of the restaurant, users can find hours of operations, reviews, photos and more. As a SocialFlight user, you can also add comments regarding the restaurants. Contributions from SocialFlight users are in some cases added to the information database along with data sourced from internal research and commercial sources.

SocialFlight can be accessed through the mobile app (available on both iTunes and Google Play) or website on a computer. The company was designed to help pilots find fun fly-ins, air shows, pancake breakfasts, conventions and other aviation related events. So far, the company has catalogued more than 50,000 events. The database also includes destinations, attractions, hotels, campgrounds, ground transportation and more.

“Our mission at SocialFlight is to provide pilots with a single ‘go-to’ source to find aviation events and destinations for their next flying adventure,” said SocialFlight’s president, Jeff Simon. “Great airport restaurants and the ubiquitous ‘$100 hamburger’ flight have always been at the core of general aviation culture, and we are excited to be able to make finding them easier than ever before, right from your phone or PC.”
