Navigator is an instrument training program for general aviation pilots. It operates in two modes.
In Learn mode you move and/or rotate the items on the map (VOR 1, VOR 2, NDB, aircraft) and see how the instruments (VOR 1, VOR 2, ADF, HI) respond. You can also change the orientation of the map by rotating the compass arrow.
In Test mode the map is put into a random configuration and your task is to determine the aircraft location. Move and/or rotate the aircraft until it is in the the position indicated by the instruments. You can also set the OBS on the VORs.
Instruments can be rotated without an initial tap. More inline help information.
Ratings and Reviews
GREAT for seasoned private pilots, and student pilots!
I suppose this is not aimed at commercial or IFR pilots who should know this stuff inside and out, but VFR pilots that don't generally use instruments much, can get rusty....
...and students trying to wrap their heads around radio navigation will find this handy to help learn.
- this little app helps keep you sharp; why play a brainless game when you have 20 minutes to kill waiting for something or in a cab or on the train?
This is a perfect way to keep entertained in a constructive way, that could literally save your life if you ever find yourself with out a GPS while lost in deteriorating Wx!
I give it 5 stars because it does what it says it does, and this is a better study aide than many other methods I have used to stay sharp with radio navigation, which I have to admit I am not very motivated to think about.
Good training tool
This is a practical, fun self-training tool for navigation. Might even help somebody pass the IFR written, never know...
As advertised. Great training aid for initial & recurrent IFR flying/exams for VOR & NDB work. Very easy to use.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
