If you’re an aviation geek (there’s a hashtag on Twitter for them: #avgeek), you’ll love sending clever and creative text messages with new aviation-themed stickers. The Aviator Flight Pack allows iMessage users to easily include aviation phraseology and visual emotion in their text messages. Pack 1 contains 33 stickers that feature air-to-air images from pro photographer Jessica Ambats. Each sticker contains an aviation term such as “Wilco” or “Cleared For Takeoff” so users can compose clever and creative text messages.
On my flight from San Francisco last week I was texting my wife from the plane (thanks Gogo). I sent her one of the stickers and she was like, “Where did you get that?

Stickers can be pasted in many ways, including: on their own line; on text bubbles, photos or other stickers; rotated and enlarged; and embellished with iOS 10 effects such as a shooting star or laser beams. Aviator Flight Pack 1 is priced at $1.99 and requires iOS 10 for iPhone or iPad. To download the sticker pack, visit the App Store.
