    My only complaint is that you cannot highlight anything. But, you can favorite a page, so its not that big of a deal.

    After starting my IFR flight training I knew I needed to get hot on my ground skills too. After several hours of research and reading countless reviews of the various IFR apps on the market, I decided on this one. After using it now for about three weeks, I find hard to believe how much information and functionality this apps contains. The only thing I'd like to see in an update or new build is the ability to print from the app.. CUDOS and keep up the great work guys!
  • Well worth the price for free information.

    The information is free from the FAA. However this app is worth paying for especially if you're an instrument student. The author has made an app which organizes the contents very well. The tape feature is fantastic to keep handy key points.

    I wasn't sure whether to buy the cheaper version of this book or just spend the extra dollar on this. I looked at both details about it and decided this was worth the extra dollar. It has worked out really well so far. I only have two complaints and they are minor of course. The first being that it would be nice if you could highlight and save certain paragraphs or sentences rather than having to "favorite" the whole page. Also, if you leave the app momentarily and use something else on the iPad, and want to go back and continue reading the same page it won't allow you to scroll down. The solution for this is that you simply have to click to the previous or next page and then go back to the page you wanted and it resets it in a way. Other than that the app is great. I'm sure that minor bug will be fixed momentarily. All in all, I would recommend this app.

    Sharp ebook. I recommend it to my students. Please include the other FAA books in your series. I will happily include them in my inventory! Text enlargement would be a bonus for my ipadmini.

    I had some issues with an earlier version. But this one is solid. Nice to be able to do a quick search and find what you need.
