See a list of all your students and access their records, including their next lesson plan, with a single touch. Notifications tell you if a student is out of currency. When integrated with a partner scheduling system, see your lesson schedule for the next two days and fleet-related notifications.
Not every lesson involves a CFI and student flying together, but you still want to keep a record of that time. Use the "Deviate" button to easily record simulator lessons, solo flights, extra ground school time, and other training events.
See all the elements of the upcoming lesson along with the most recent scores for any maneuvers the student has performed in the past. New and review items are highlighted with tags. Ready to get in the air? Tap the "Go Fly" button to launch the lesson.

The activity index is one of my favorite parts. It shows you the PTS/ACS standards, tips for teaching for the instructor, and common errors the student could make, this is so helpful for me as an instructor because that information is all inside the app for me.
CFI (CHS Flight School)
We are really enjoying the app. It makes my job as a CFI easier. It's nice to have the students see their progress and have a 'finish line.'
CFI (Stratos Aviation)
I really like how easy it is for me to add activities to the lessons. I have continued to do what the app suggests but continued on our pre-solo lessons too. We have had massive crosswinds with the hurricanes coming so I was able to add crosswind takeoffs and landings easy peasy. It is easy to use in the cockpit... I would even grade Ethan for the first landing, then change it when it was better after the next, etc. Skipping items was easy too... I like that I could apply the reason for skipping to all items rather than one at a time. The activity index is so cool. I showed my other instructor and couldn't stop gushing about the study prep links and the activity index.
