SocialFlight Introduces Awards Programs

The aviation app SocialFlight will now offer pilots the chance to win prizes and rewards simply for flying. SocialFlight

SocialFlight, an aviation app that informs pilots of events and businesses, and connects like-minded aviators, has added more features to encourage aviation activity. With its sixth major upgrade, the company has introduced what it calls FLY2WIN challenges and rewards, giving pilots the opportunity to win products and badges of honor the more they fly. More than $50,000 worth of products will be handed out to SocialFlight users in the next few months, including products from Aspen Avionics, L-3, Bose, Lightspeed, FreeFlight Systems and more.

In order to be eligible to win prizes under the monthly FLY2WIN challenge, you must check in on the SocialFlight app at least once. Checking in is as easy as tapping on the phone. As long as alerts are active, the app will automatically send a pop up alert asking if you want to check in when you land at a new airport, automatically entering you into the drawing.

SocialFlight users can get double entries in the drawings by becoming one of the Top 20 users on the FLY2WIN leader board. The leader board resets each month.

In addition to entering the monthly drawing, you can build a virtual airplane. Points are collected based on how much you fly and those points add up to parts on an animated airplane that can be viewed on the app.

SocialFlight has also added lists of rebates and special deals from national and local businesses.

Since the SocialFlight app was launched in 2013, more than 50,000 events have been posted. The app is accessible across all platforms: smartphones, tablets and desktop computers.
