Flying by instrument flight rules (IFR) is not an easy thing to learn for flight students. By IFR Flight Trainer Simulator aviation students and pilots will develop and improve their instrument navigation understanding and accuracy.
The app is a very helpful for training and practicing IFR arrival and approach procedures (and miles cheaper than a flight hour).
IFR Flight Trainer Simulator is a well-designed instrument procedure trainer for every AVIATION PILOTS, both newbie, doing his initial nav training and experienced avionics captain, BUT it also a good tool if you are about to acquire an IR (Instrument Rating) or just brush up your IFR skills.
It is a unique navigation simulator app both in simplicity and operability.
The AVIONICS INSTRUMENTS available are: VOR, RMI, HSI, ADF, DME the Directional Gyro and the airspeed indicator. Thanks to a NAV 1 and a NAV 2, you will also be able to train for 2 NDB/VOR approaches and 2 NDB/VOR holdings.
COCKPIT/MAP: Use the cockpit mode to orientate or use the map mode to check you progress. If needed, the aircraft can be easily moved to a new position by drag and drop to practice instrument approach procedure particular from a different position.
VOR, NDB, HIS, RMI: This aviation app is carefully designed to reflect the characteristics of different instruments: choose between VOR and NDB navigation, instrument to be used (HSI or RMI) and a speed range up to 300 kts.
APPROACH PROCEDURE: IFR Flight Trainer Simulator will help you a lot to learn how to track a radial, how to intercept a radial outbound, inbound, how to fly a DME arc, and so on. It is a great way for avionics student to prepare and get to know the navigation procedure inside out!
WIND: If you are a pilot student start off with no wind to get comfortable with it, and increase the difficulty level later on by adding more. The wind is displayed on separate screen - to add a challenge, the displayed wind can also be hidden.
Of course, you can create your own procedures, for example a holding pattern you expect to fly during your check flight, and adjust the wind to reflect actual or expected conditions.
IFR FLIGHT Trainer offers a flexible flight training environment to create any conditions of instrument flying. If you would like to check your IFR flying approach, look at one of the IFR Flight Trainer’s in-built tasks.
IFR Flight Trainer features
• Use the instrument on the cockpit like you would do in the real aircraft or
• Use the map mode to verify your progress
• Choose between VOR and NDB navigation and use carefully designed instruments
• The interactive training system contains the following instruments:
RMI, HIS, Directional gyro, DME, Airspeed indicator and ADF
• Customize your own missions by creating holding patterns and adjusting the wind how you want, or test your knowledge through different in-built tasks
• Do you want to change the aircraft’s position? Just drag & drop the aircraft symbol
• Aircraft track trail can be displayed, or suppressed
• Wind simulation: start with no wind and increase the difficulty level later on by adding wind
• Use the hidden plane function to add a realistic challenge
• Radio beacons can be easily moved to a new position by drag and drop to practice instrument approach procedure
• Practice IFR flying procedure by starting over and over again from different random starting positions using the random reposition button
Our approach to instrument flying is unique. See how we help you to learn (if you are an instructor to teach) IFR navigation. Prepare yourself without wasting expensive flight- or simulator time.
Download our pilot friendly app now to gain instrument pilot proficiency.
Don’t miss an opportunity to try out our Pilot trainer IFR pack too. This interactive IFR trainer app is a step by step' system, which will teach you how to use IFR instruments in real flying conditions.
This update includes several bug fixes and a few small performance improvement. So bye bye bugs and hello enhancements.
Do not forget without IFR there is no flight, without flight there is no life.

Ratings and Reviews
Great App to help PIC’s get their minds engaged.
This is a great app to help instrument rated pilots and instrument students practice navigation and tracking.
Would give it 5 stars but Task 11 was completed while flying direct to VOR 1 to track the 150 radial outbound. I was still .6 DME inbound to the VOR and crossed over the airport. I received a message that the task was completed.
Overall it’s a great app.
You can learn a lot from this simulator, according to my opinion this is the best on the market for iOS. Combined with some other instructor apps from FlyGo, this is a very helpful if you want to practice and learn more.
Great user interface
It let’s you to customize almost everything. The hide and track mode helps a lot to rely on instruments.
