This companion app to our online course covers everything you need to know about VFR charts and publications, including sectional charts, terminal area charts, world aeronautical charts, the Airport/Facility Directory, and NOTAMs. It's an excellent way to prepare for your private pilot checkride and keep your flying skills sharp.

This app gives you access to the same VFR Charts and Publications course content you use on your computer - including all of the quizzes, content and tests. Plus, the app works when you're online or off, so you can train and study wherever you are.

Simply sign in to the course with your Boldmethod account and you're ready to go!

The course breaks down publications into sections on:
Sectional Charts
Terminal Area Charts
World Aeronautical Charts
the Airport/Facility Directory
and NOTAMs

Interactive graphics illustrate each section of the map, highlighting information as you go. Practice sessions allow you to quickly use what you learn, and are optimized to help you learn quickly - no matter how much time you have. End-of-chapter tests make sure you know how to use the publications, and make sure you're ready for your checkride.

A final test makes sure you're ready to go - whether it's for your private pilot checkride, a biennial flight review, or simply helping you keep up-to-speed.

Great way to learn

I really like the way they lay this out, connect the facts with visuals, test along the way, and build the knowledge base up. For $25, it's basically like having a full time tutor available whenever you have a few minutes or hours, so I found it worth the money.

Great job!

Boldmethod does an awesome job of presenting material, engaging the learner and making it all make sense, rather than just dumping it all on you like so many other sources. This really helps the knowledge take hold much better than rote learning, which isn’t retained nearly as well.
