Whether you’re studying for a checkride or prepping for a flight review, it’s likely that ASA has an appropriate app for your iOS device. The company announced Nov. 19 that it has apps for the private, instrument, commercial, flight instructor, helicopter, and multiengine checkrides, as well as one for the flight review.
The apps use a question-and-answer flashcard format to list the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provide succinct responses, according to ASA. Each is based on the Oral Exam Guide series by Michael Hayes.
Questions can be marked for further study from any subject area to create a customized collection of flashcards focused on areas of concern and a student’s particular learning needs. All questions include references for student resources where additional information on particular subject areas can be found, ASA said.
Each app sells for $9.99 and can be purchased from the Apple Store. The exam guides also are available in e-book format.

Fourteen aviation organizations have banded together to urge the FAA to take immediate steps to lower barriers to ADS-B equipage.
AOPA worked with the flight training industry and FAA to quickly resolve a problem that suddenly put many rating applications on hold.
The Upwind Summer Scholarship Program, which gives high school students a chance to earn their private pilot certificate in the summer between their junior and senior year, is accepting applications for its 2015 scholarship.
