User Reviews

Just what the doctor ordered
This is a tremendously simple, intuitive, and powerful app for those of us who get a little spatially confused by abstract geometry represented by a static image. The user can easily toggle among 1 or 2 navigation devices including VOR, HSI, ADF, and RMI and drag a plane around. This is not a flight simulator but a great Navaid simulator. Worth every penny and a great study partner for the FAA knowledge exams.

Great trainer for IFR students
This is a great app for pilots seeking an instrument rating. The simulated test function within the app is great practice for the FAA written exam. I have used this app to demonstrate holds, DME arcs, and HSI situational awareness.

Excellent app
I teach instruments for the US Army at Ft Rucker, Al. This is a very good app to demonstrate the effects of wind on your course and how various MH effects the correcting for wind drift. It's also very useful in explaining, demonstrating and adaptive practice of track/course intercepts. At this price it's more than worth it.

Great training aid
Easy to use, clear, clean graphics, helps my students to visualize a procedure before we go fly it. Price is low considering the great value.
