  • Convenient, but needs a few more study features Mar 13, 2021

    By Willow Branham
    I like that there is an electronic version of this book! It saves money and space in the long run. I don’t have to continue purchasing a physical copy which becomes obsolete within a year - which is a waste of space, paper, and money! However, this app needs some work. As a student pilot, it would be INCREDIBLY handy to be able to annotate the book, by actually typing or writing in the margins with the Apple Pencil, or by making notes in a separate page commenting on a specific regulation. It would also be handy to be able to print a specific page. I understand, you sell hard copies, and there is a website, but I would love to have the convenience of printing a single page of a specific regulation with my notes so I can use it to study up for the FAA tests. Otherwise, this app is good for what it does, I like that each Part is in its own section with a short description of what it is about. I just think it would be handy to have more features to aid in studying. I appreciate you looking at this review, have a good day!

    Great to have this in digital and way worth the price, but can we get some of the bugs worked out like the highlighting not working?!
  • Somewhat convenient, but worth it I suppose. Jun 11, 2020

    By Stephen Miner
    I love being able to search for things and have it very accessible on my iPad. I have two minor issues with the app. 1. I wish I could sign in and sync my highlights across multiple devices. I find myself studying things on my phone or iPad Pro and then later I Look at my iPad mini and it’s not highlighted on that device. It would be great to have that synced across all my devices. 2. It would AWESOME to have the ability to highlight in different colors and insert my own notes. That way I could customize the way I studied or remember the color of something I highlighted, or write down/notate a saying that helps me remember a regulation. If this app had these functions, I would absolutely give it 5 stars and would recommend that everybody get this app. But for now, its just somewhat convenient.

    The app is great I really like, a must have for a professional pilot. I saw that is missing the pilot/controller glossary, the NASA report general form, and the index. The index makes it easier to locate specific information (even easier than the search bar because sometimes you don't know the specific terms).

  • Needs bookmarks and note taking!! Nov 28, 2018

    By highflyer23
    This is good, but could be way better if you could bookmark sections. It is really important to be able to add notes or a comment box. For Example: under VOR checks in Part 91 it would be extremely helpful to add a note or comment box that the user could add that the procedure to conduct the checks is in AIM 1-1-4. Or even have a feature so you can create a folder or tab where someone could put all the different regulations for ARROW, or aircraft my requirements, etc...

  • Nearly useless search Jun 9, 2019

    By The Angry Monkey
    I originally gave this app a three star review. After using it for several months, I have decided it’s really not a great app for many reasons, but there are two in particular: 1) the search borders on useless. For example, let’s say you want to find the FAR for inoperative instruments. Type “inoperative” and you get 116 results. Type “inoperative ins” and you get zero. Type the full word “inoperative instrument” and you get the result. It makes it hard to find something if you can’t remember the exact wording. 2) it doesn’t sync across devises.

  • Good but should be better Sep 15, 2018

    By Dougeee
    I like that you only but once and it's updated but those updates are few and far between. It was finally updated to 2019 after a very long period without any update. Also, it needs to be optimized for later screens. The larger screens have been out for years and was thinking that the next update would address this issue. Big miss! Please promise the screen and don't take years too do it or publish other updates.

    Highlights and bookmarks are the same thing. Bookmark list is getting cluttered. Study indices are leaving things out. Just as well may download the PDFs from the FAA. Acrobat has better hilighting and bookmarking. Not much of a value-add here.

    Doesn't include all the sections of the print far aim. Instrument/CFII study by section was missing Class C operations in it's list, but had class D and B... I keep finding minor, but meaningful errors.

  • THE Far/Aim App to Purchase Apr 10, 2019

    By CntryClub007
    As of 9 APR 2019, I can confidently say that this is THE Far/Aim app to purchase. Formats excellent on iPhone X/Xs/XsM and iPad Mini / Pro (just updated). The “Study by Certificate” feature is also incredibly beneficial, you can highlight, as well as bookmark too. This isn’t a study guide app, this is the Far/Aim. I recommend this to all of my fellow aviators. Great app!

  • Very good Sep 13, 2016

    By flitetym
    Consider this the “default” application for every level of aviator. My only wish is for it to have the ability to adjust the fontsize (not just pinch to zoom). If you're in the business of flying, you need this app.
  • Extremely useful Mar 21, 2017

    By beingfineisawesome
    I love the ability to highlight and zoom in on the text. It is laid out in an easy to follow format. The only thing that would make it better is the ability to un-highlight text.

    This is so much better than using a paper FAR/AIM. Especially when running a quick search for something specific. I do wish you could highlight Part and Subpart Titles rather than just the words contained within those parts.
  • Better than paper Nov 24, 2016

    By Daniele Scarpazza
    The app is great for three reasons: 1) weight - zero more pounds added to your electronic flight bag, as opposed to the paper FAR/AIM; 2) free updates: buy once, have it forever; you pay nine bucks once and you are set forever. If you buy the paper version, you have to buy a new revision every year; 3) searchability: as they say, you can't grep dead trees. The quality of the layout and typesetting is ok. The quality of figures, tables and illustrations is also ok. Totally usable. A lot of the old-timers complain that the font is too small and they should feature resizable fonts. I agree it would be nice to rescale fonts, but the paper book does not have big types either, so it's not that you don't need glasses for the paper version... Anyway, I'm happy with the product and I recommend it.

  • Needs improvement Nov 29, 2018

    By Andy Zimmerman
    While it’s great that the application is updated and holds all useful FAR and AIM entries for 2019, the UI is outdated. Speaking as a fellow developer, I honestly don’t understand why they haven’t updated the UI, it literally is a couple hour job, especially for an app that is solely built with UITableViewControllers. Please push on the developer to update this, if they aren’t able to do so easily there is something seriously wrong with your development process.

  • Great with one issue Aug 20, 2018

    By Forseth11
    This FAR/AIM is great, and it is easy to use. There is only one issue. The search button is halfway hidden, and it is very difficult to click it. It still works, but I think it is a glitch. The search box is hidden under the ASA logo. I found two ways around it: 1) click precisely on the edge of it. 2) switch apps and come back to it.

  • Wish I Would’ve Purchased a Different App Nov 1, 2020

    By MCBsky
    The app has all of the information of the FAR/AIM, but almost no digital convenience factors. It does NOT sync highlights and bookmarks across devices, and apparently the highlighting does not transfer correctly when new revisions come out. I have random highlighting in sections I haven’t read, that starts and stops in the middle of words. It would also be nice to be able to draw notes either in a margin, or on the pages directly.

    This is pretty much useless. The older version was much better.

    Adding my voice to those that complain that this app is out of date. It's imperative that pilots have the latest changes from the FAA in the FAR/AIM and the lack of updates makes this app so but useless. I may as well just buy the softcover doorstop from Amazon. (Which this app was supposed to obviate.) Very disappointed in ASA.
