    Thank you. This has been an excellent learning aide and refresher. I can’t imagine how much air work this has avoided. Update: I don’t think I have ever added an update to a review. This app is so helpful. I’m now doing my multi engine and will do an IPC. This great for getting back up to speed without setting foot in the airplane. My only wish is that the developers add more features. Like full approaches, including an ILS. Best software purchase I have ever made. Sincere thanks.

    There are a lot of training apps out there and unfortunately I’ve purchased my fair share. In my opinion this is the one I come back to you most often. It’s easy to use, but it definitely challenges you so you can calibrate your brain to interpret the needles. The author has done an excellent job with this app. I would echo other comments that it would be great to see even more scenarios. Money well spent.

    This app is simply excellent! If you have a few free minutes you can study and improve your VOR skills. The app simplifies things for example you only worry about two dimensions and there’s only standard rate turns which allow you to focus on what actually matters without distraction. I used to use x plane to practice but this app lets you practice on your mobile device and in short time slots this increasing your knowledge.

    I am new student pilot, and even though am far from my instrument rating,I like to be ahead of things, and getting to know the instruments and know how they operate is a must. this app has giving me confidence for when my training on VOR navigation comes, I would have a better understanding and would save money on flying hours. Thanks to all the developers involve people like me really appreciate what you do to heal out.

    This is the first app review I’ve ever written. I was having a lot of trouble learning holds and working them out on the sim in kind of a pain. This app is perfect. When I get my CFII I will be encouraging all of my students to invest. One thing I haven’t quite figured out Is why you briefly lose the VOR when on top of it. Perhaps that could be fixed so we just see a to/from switch.

    This is a great way to train your brain to quickly visualize the needles. I’m using this to exercise VOR nav skills in quick 5 minute breaks. Beats social media and cheaper than burning fuel. What it can’t simulate is the task saturation that you can experience in the cockpit. With that, this app is perfect with what it aims to exercise and will hopefully help reduce that workload saturation.

    This app excellent! I don’t need to book a practice sim and waste setup time just to practice holdings and arc/course intercepts. I can just hop on this app when I have free time and practice on my own. I made an in-app purchase for the EHSI to practice for my T-6A sims. If you’re a visual learner like me and are having trouble grasping instrument concepts, this app is a must!

    Have just discovered this fine little app and I have not been able to put down the IPad for a couple of days now! Still trying to figure everything out, but after watching the videos on YT I have made great progress. Thanks to the maker of this app!
  • Good for training. Dec 2, 2018

    By I'm no critic, but...
    Getting IFR training. This simple app is amazing. With simple controls, I can intercept VOR headings, and practice hold patterns wherever I have a few minutes. Saves me a lot of fuel and instructor time.
  • Really helpful app! Jan 10, 2018

    Really love the app. Wish that rather than visualizations for holds and dme arcs that it would have the option to give written instructions similar to how ATC would tell you. For instance “hold north on the 16 dme of the XYZ VOR on the 350 radial”. I feel the visualizations give me too much help.

  • Doesn’t mimic real world intercepts Apr 14, 2021

    By Capptainclutch
    The random placement makes no sense. In what world would I intercept the 264 radial inbound if I was EAST of the station? I have to open the map almost every time and reposition so I can intercept under 90 degrees

  • Great study tool Jul 11, 2017

    By FernandodelaPluma
    A point to point addition (one point in a radial to a point on another) would be super helpful, but this app is phenomenal for picking up the basics. Totally worth the price!

  • Good trainer Feb 22, 2020

    Where is the common VOR nav receiver? Would be great to have this along side the HSI so that aspiring pilots can practice with the instrument that is more frequently found in trainer aircraft? (More so than an RMI) Otherwise, nicely done.
