I am getting back into flying after a 20-year hiatus.  I am delighted with the tech advancements I'm seeing, especially because I embrace tech eagerly and feel it can enhance both safety and situational awareness for GA pilots (as long as one does not neglect VOR navigation in favour of what seems "easier").  Until I started to re-train, I had never flown with a GPS, moving map or autopilot.

I have a few fairly expensive decisions to make about adopting ForeFlight, so I hope ...
I'm a private pilot certificate holder, check ride in 2013, just turned 40.  I'm military so I've moved twice since then, and haven't flown.  Medical expired.  I'm approaching retirement in about a year and a half, and I'm looking to get back into aviation, possibly as a second career.  I have concerns about the medical.
