Cap'n Aux FREE Mobile App!

A central clearing house for All things #AvGeek
#Aviation #Airline,  and #Adventure #travel!

(Should work on computers, iPads and Androids)

On that site, there is 1.) a scan code, 2.) a link to click, or 3.) an option to send an email so you can download it later on your mobile!

iPhone users
(and those for whom the above link shows "incompatible OS")
Click this link in your browser:

Now: click the arrow at the bottom of your screen, and select "Save to Home Screen."
This will be a link that saves to your home screen and works like a real app.  Later, I will release an actual iPhone version. ;)

You can also use the direct link above as a webpage on your computer as well!

Live Feeds to: 
—Aviation blogs
       (Miss TWA, Flight to Success, Daddy Come Back, Ryan's Travels & Photos.  Note: Each blog features several posts and are not listed chronologically; you may have to dig quite deep to get your fav' feed!)
—Breaking Aviation News
—Awesome Aviation sites
       (Flightaware, Live ATC Live,, Thirty Thousand Feet, NOAA, etc.)
—Latest Cap'n Aux Vids, pics, books etc!

Consider this a "1.0 Beta version."  (I designed this a little over a month ago, so it's already a tad out dated, LOL!)  Please use it and tell me what you think...and SEND SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT!

This is a FREE version (which has occasional ads.)  But if y'all REALLY LIKE IT, I'll spring for the Pro version, which will be a true stand-alone app (and STILL FREE to you!), with no ads, and all the links/content YOU want it to provide!*


*I'll esp. be looking for cool sites not already included, so tell me your faves!

  5. Are you taking requests??? Can you please hop sometime into one of the following and bring it to FLL - these are the last two in the particular fleet that I have not been able to photography - there is a Nevada color scheme - and - then a retro scheme from a company that used to be based in PHX whose initials were AW - am I asking a little too much?? I'll buy you coffee in FLL :)

    1. Haha Mark, I will keep that in mind, and when I fly one or the other to FLL I'll give you a heads-up!!

      PS--Regardless of what I fly in, I'll def. take you up on that coffee next time thru FLL!!

      SO SORRY for the tardy reply to your posts. I could swear I'd already replied!

      And, once again, I AM taking "requests" on the app, so thanks for the input. NYC Av might not be in there, but I will put it in asap! :-)


Sorry, folks, due to more spamming, Word Verification is back on. If you have trouble posting, please email your comments to me and I will post it for you!
