As some of you have already realized, we released a new update to Pilot Trainer – IFR Pack. This app is a selection of essential functions designed especially for IFR pilots and students that has been redesigned and new features has been implemented. Now, this blogpost summarizes for you the main changes in 4 areas.
New learning materials
Based on students feedback where we continuously tests our trainer apps, we developed new learning materials that helps better understand instrument flying and holding patterns. Most of these materials are interactive and require students do fulfill some simple tasks in order to better understand instruments. This ’step-by-step’ method makes our app more useful and provides significant feedback to students regarding their understanding of IFR flying.
New learning methods
Flying by instrument flight rules (IFR) is not an easy thing to learn for flight students. Thus, we extended the available options to make settings more suitable for education purposes. Now, students can use…
- Trace mode: This Function makes the flight route visible that helps to evalute flying accuracy.
- Hide mode: This function let users to hide or make the aircraft visible during the simulator mode. Hiding aircaft helps you to improve instrument flying skills.
Use both function and evaluate your simulation afterwards.
More tasks – more experience
Although our app includes a lot of learning materials, explanations and graphs, one of the most powerful feature is the IFR Simulator. We have developed more tasks to practice that allow students to test their knowledge and use all IFR instruments during ’real flight’ simulation.
The name has been changed – The ’All in 1’ is the new ’Pack’
Our users got to know our app as Pilot Trainer – IFR Pack that has been changed to IFR Trainer – All in 1. We hope that this name better describe its purpose: to include all necessary IFR instruments and related knowledge in one app. The app consists of 5 IFR features:
- ADF + RMI Instructor (free)
- VOR + ILS Instructor
- HSI Instructor
- IFR Simulator
- Holding pattern instructor
Next time, when flight students ask you which IFR trainer app would you recommend, don’t forget to suggest IFR Trainer – All in 1.
