B737 Cockpit Companion for iPad is a conversion of Bill Bulfer's B737 NG Cockpit Companion book series to an iPad app. It now includes the Classics.
Since 1998, B737 Cockpit Companion has been a valued resource for airline pilots worldwide. It is a convenient accessible guide to systems, incorporating notes on functionality, "theory of operation", and Bill's extensive experience as a line pilot with a major US carrier.
B737 Cockpit Companion steps far beyond the "need to know" philosophy that is characteristic of modern systems training, and which frustrates many line pilots.
The app is much more than an "eBook." At its heart is a powerful database engine that allows a tremendous number of configuration options to be customized without forcing the user to wade through clutter: When you browse a control head, for instance, you will see only content related to that control head.
The app features a touch-through navigation scheme, so you can start with the top-level cockpit view, and find notes specific to the panel you deal with.
It also contains a number of reference options, so you can look up data without having to work through the control panels.
The major features include:
- Extensive coverage of the B737-600, -700, -800, -900, the BBJs, and the Classic EFIS/EIS.
- The complete text of the B737 NG Cockpit Companion print version--and more.
- All-new, high-resolution graphics detailing every panel and control head.
- A note-taking capability.
- An extensive index of over 700 items, linked to the main text.
- A circuit breaker locator.
- Bill's high-resolution, vector-based schematics.
- The content of the B737 Alerts app—a $15 value—optimized for the new database.
- An extensive glossary.
- A database update feature to help keep the database up to date (requires a wireless connection).
Of interest to students or prospective pilots, we also include:
- The content of the B737 QRG app—a $10 value—optimized for the new database (the QRG is a conceptual project, useful for aeroscience students, is not universally applicable, and should not be used in flight operations).
- A sample Limitations function.
- A sample Master Minimum Equipment List, based on FAA Rev 55a.
- An ATA chapter database.
As with all products of this type, this program is for informational purposes only. Your FAA-approved company flight manual is the final authority as to the safe and correct operation of your airplane.
One optional in-app subscription, "Quizzer", is available. This is a convenient way of reviewing systems operation, and was written by Bill Bulfer:
• The subscription lasts one year.
• Payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase
• The subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.
• Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal at the time.
• Subscriptions may be managed by you, and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to your iTunes Account Settings in System Settings after purchase.
NOTE: The app is supported and designed for the iPad 4 and later. It is not supported on the original iPad (2010). Performance on the iPad 2 (2011) and iPad 3 (2012) and the original iPad Mini (2012) will be marginal. As of September 2018, it requires iOS 10 or later, but may run on earlier versions (these are untested).

ALL MAX A/C
AA, Norwegian, SW, UA, and 800/900/MAX (with options).
The AOA indicator and several AOA indicator drawings has been added to the AOA description.
PFD either side > MAX PFD > AOA indicator.
More AOA indicator photos are requested. Thanks in advance.
ALL NG/MAX A/C
Added a drawing of the latest Cold Soaked Fuel Frost black outline that is on the upper surface of the wing (optional).
Fuel panel > Fuel System Notes > scroll to Cold Soaked Fuel Frost (CSFF).
Added a drawing of the Fuel Measuring Stick locations.
Fuel panel > Fuel System Notes > scroll to Fuel Measuring Sticks (after CSFF).
This drawing is necessary because the first statement in CSFF refers to measuring stick #4.
The drawing shows where #4 is on the undersurface of each wing.
Ratings and Reviews
The Best 737 APP!
I have had this app since it came out years ago. I have about every edition of CC book also. They both are amazing! What I love about the app most is before I call MX about an issue on the aircraft, I can come here and get the knowledge I need about the item before I call my maintenance guy. Now I am on same page as they are when we discuss the issue. The app is so easy to use. Bill is constantly adding information to it. Always always updating.........If you fly the B737 YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS. SHOULD BE MANDATORY!!!
Pros use it
I started with Bill’s manuals (both the CC and the FMC guide). Both have helped me to maintain proficiency and knowledge acquisition. I even changed the way I fly the airplane because of what I have learned. This is a great tool to have whether you are getting typed or just as a cockpit reference as I use it. I can’t say enough about this app.. or Bill. Thanks for creating this helpful and valuable resource
Cockpit companion is an excellent tool used by aviation professionals worldwide. As a flight training instructor for a major airline I’ve used CC in program development and pilot training. It is an excellent reference complete with the latest information, with displays and pull down descriptions of every system in the B-737, including the MAX aircraft. There is no other product like it.
