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.

Contemplating IFR flight scenarios for airports like Delta, Utah, is excellent review for any instrument pilot. That's because briefing for a flight into and out of Delta covers bases unlikely to be encountered on your next two-hour tour of your home field approaches.
What’s your heading?” Rare is the student pilot who hasn’t let distraction, or turbulence, spoil a slick stint of steady flying. Then you vow to do a better job next time of keeping track of the messages your instruments are displaying.
Helicopter training is generally very safe. So why do run-on takeoffs and landings feel so wrong?
