FlightSafety has listened to our customers and is proud to release the newest update to FlightBag.
FlightBag is a training and reference app for the iPad, enabling users the ability to more effectively and efficiently view, manage, and annotate their important training resources. Based upon client input, FlightBag has been designed with a new user interface, as well as enhanced, cloud-based document management and annotation capabilities, presenting a far superior training experience. With this update to FlightBag subscription syncing times have been reduced and a new set of annotations tools are provided for improved study and quicker learning.
FlightBag requires either an active FlightSafety subscription, or an existing/new training reservation.
FAVORITE DOCUMENTS & SUBSCRIPTIONS OVERVIEW
The new FlightBagTM app offers efficient and effective management, retrieval, and updating of these important resources. Users can access documents quickly on the main menu, and tag “favorites”, or documents they use most frequently, for direct access across subscriptions, and on a wide variety of devices.
A new document viewer and annotation tool makes note taking easier. Users can now access annotation tools without switching between editing and viewing modes. Tools are “front-and-center”, better organized, and provide better control over document and page features of the past.
CLOUD SYNCING & BACKGROUND UPDATES
Users can keep their documents and notes up-to-date during training. “Favorites”, notes, and annotations are synced seamlessly to the FlightSafety cloud, and may be accessed on all your devices. With background updates, documents are flagged when there are revision updates, and users may commence reading a document, while the remaining updates continue downloading in the background.
Users may access their training materials from virtually any device. FlightBag™ is available for the Apple iPad, as well is accessible via a web-browser version, providing access to the app for desktop computers and non-iOS tablet devices. A familiar look and feel ensures users the same interface on these complimentary versions.

Bit of a Learning Curve
After being so familiar with the old system it was initially pretty cumbersome, however I'm beginning to find my way around and discover there are quite a few functions I thought were missing but I just needed to become familiar with the UI and they're there. Working with the iPad means sharp graphics, and I'm happy with the navigation at this point. In fact, with only a minimal amount of time invested I was able to use the App in class, moving from one file to another, using bookmarks and search functions, and note-taking too! I'm certain there will be many improvements in the future - hey, it's a pretty dramatic change from the old, but the current state of this app is - in my humble opinion - pretty user friendly once you spend some time with it. An ability to use folders in favorites would be nice, as well as being able to import outside files to the app.
Always crashing. Says memory low. But I am using a brand new iPad. Also doesn’t save text typed into search. Books is a better app than this.
