Ratings and Reviews
Well put together; really gives good visual interpretation of what your nav indicators are showing you, including wind effects. Only suggestion would be to make OBS and DG a little less sensitive so that changes could be more precisely set. Test feature is great - really makes you think about what you're seeing on the DG & OBS. About to get an iPad; hope this is set up to run on the iPad, too, with a larger display.
Great Training tool
This app is simple yet does an excellent job of helping you visualize the relationship between what the gauges show and the plane's actual position. I agree-OBS scrolling could stand to be a little less sensitive. Useful tool for ground school.
The best app
This app is the best i ever used. It is very user friendly, helps you understand and create navigation scenarios and even use it to demonstrate and explain about the navigation instruments to your student !
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
