Sporty’s Complete Instrument Training course, available in online and DVD formats, is now a dedicated app for iOS devices. Formatted specifically for the iPhone or iPad, the app includes 13 hours of real-world video and advanced graphics including 3-D animations to help explain difficult concepts, Sporty’s said.
The app includes a dedicated test preparation program for the knowledge test, as well as a flight training syllabus, an interactive maneuvers guide, and integrated practical test standards. The knowledge test prep program lets you use one of three modes: Learning to review specific areas of study, Test to provide a random mix of questions to simulate an exam, and Flashcard to answer questions without seeing choices in a self-graded environment.
The course sells for $199, which permits the user to keep it on both devices. A demo app is available as a free download. For more information or to purchase, see the website.

Pilots focus on preheating the engine during cold weather, but what about the cockpit? More than 30 percent of an aircraft's value is often tied up in the panel.
