Ratings and Reviews
Recently I purchased the A320 Checkride app to study for my recurrent training. At first I thought that the program is quite expensive, but with few options in the market I decided to buy. To my surprise, there are some mistakes in the software in relation to the real airplane.
1- In the app the evacuation panel is missing.
2- The switches on the lights panel lights are all reversed.
I am still using the app, but the credibility has dropped considerably.
Great for studying
This app is great for studying although it's on a GE engine airplane with no other panel options. I would like to see a IAE engine selection as some of the panels are different in this. There are different radars and IRS panels that are not available either. But when you click on a button it does provide great systems info. Clocks in a wrong location and some planes have a IESS in them vs all old steam Gage's for standby instruments. If you need to study it's worth it just needs work and options
Lacking Important Features
I find the app useful for studying and add a bunch of notes for my airline in the notes box. Recently I got a new iPad, and was surprised to find out that none of my notes transitioned to the app. A simple cloud backup would be a huge feature for backing up data.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
