"***** Before I used this app all this VOR orientation was so complicated, and now it's clear as ice!"
"***** I have been looking for an app such as this to teach my students"
"***** I teach instruments for the US Army at Ft Rucker, Al. This is a very good app to demonstrate the effects of wind on your course and how various MH effects the correcting for wind drift. It's also very useful in explaining, demonstrating and adaptive practice of track/course intercepts."
"***** Easy to use, perfectly designed and helping to understand basic navigation stuff. Highly recommended for student pilots, instrument applicant and CFI's."

Excellent. Great app for practicing Radio Nav and visualizing procedures. Wish it didn't have iOS graphics and buttons but not a big deal.

The one issue I had (changing OBS accidently changes instrument) I emailed the developer about and he came up with a solution. Keep the awesome training apps coming! Helped calm my VOR insecurities before my successful IFR checkride. Thanks!

Valuable Training Tool Worked fine on my old Nexus 7. On the new N7, I only get a black screen. Edit: Now working well on 2013 N7. Thanks to the develop for the prompt update! This app has been very helpful for me.

Annoying controls The controls are really annoying. Have given the developer some good tips on how to fix it, but seems there is no will to do this. I recommend you to find some other app that wont frustrate you so much... Still no pinch zoom, and still annoyingly changes instrument when singel tapping... aaarg... None of the new features are implemented, so you can disregard everything under the NEWS column
