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.

Stratus 2 is a partnership among manufacturer Appareo, Sporty's Pilot Shop, and Foreflight. Because Stratus 2 was built with Foreflight in mind, the level of integration is slick and complete. However, that partnership also is the product's Achilles' heel.
With all the recent attention to in-the-ear and on-the-ear headsets, Lightspeed has fired back with a cutting edge new over-the-ear model that takes noise attenuation and audio processing to new levels.
