    The FAA does have the QICP program. However, as aluded to above, for most of us we just need to be assured that our provider is "good enough."

    There is (was?) an issue with weathermeister that was brought to their attention some time ago that they never fixed to my knowledge. If you get a weather briefing, it will only give you NOTAMS along your route of flight UNLESS you are within a close physical distance to the actual center location. May not seem like a big deal, but if you want to get the big picture in case of a deviation, you will not. They were very unresponsive to suggestions and to fix another bug that deleted a lat/long if you edited your route. I use Foreflight myself.
