Outstanding App!

As with all apps by Double Dog Studio's, you receive nothing but quality. This app is so easy to navigate, read and so much better than carrying around the clunky book. This is a must have app for all pilots and instructors alike, whether you need a refresher or you are getting ready for you instrument check ride. Also it is better than paying $15 for the actual handbook. Great investment.
