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.
