Buckle up with Sporty’s iPhone/iPad app, featuring three exciting instrument flights showing pilots of various experience levels flying and communicating in the IFR system.

More than just a rehash of basic radio procedures, this app gives today’s instrument pilot a real-world look at IFR communications through all phases of flight in a variety of airspace.

Using a visual menu system, IFR Communications is broken down into 7 chapters showing the various phases of the IFR flights. Based on Sporty’s 50 years of aviation education experience, the IFR Communications app contains over 70 minutes of engaging 3D animations, in-flight video and real-world communication scenarios.

The action-packed flights take place in a Cessna Skyhawk equipped with VOR navigation, a Garmin G1000-equipped Cessna Skylane and a pressurized Piper Malibu Mirage. We’ll visit several airports, including rural non-towered airports and the high-density Chicago Midway airport.

Experience the unique challenges each flight presents and see how the pilots effectively manage all available resources to complete each mission. Also included are sections designed to refresh your knowledge of basic IFR communications, plus a review of communication procedures during emergencies. IFR Communications will make you a better instrument pilot regardless of experience and help make your next flight smoother and safer.

Also included is a review quiz based on content from the videos. After finishing the questions you’ll receive instant feedback on your score and be able to review missed questions. There’s even a way to quickly review the video segment from which the question is based.

Includes "picture-in-picture" multitasking technology, allowing you to scale the video player to a corner of the screen so that you can continue to watch while taking the review quiz, or using other apps on your iPad.

We’ve additionally included the FAA publication “Radio Communications Phraseology and Techniques” – complete with a table of contents to quickly access each section. This helpful guide is useful for both students who are learning the ins and outs of radio communications, as well as for flight instructors preparing to instrument radio techniques.

This is a Universal app and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Works on:
• iPhone 3GS or newer
• iPod Touch 4th generation or newer
• iPad Mini, iPad 2 or newer

Generally I like the app, the presentation looks good.

Overall I like the app but have two issues.
1. It does not look like my status will sync between my devices like the foreflight training app does.

2. When in a sub menu item, the intro for example, when I watch a video it bumps out to the main menu not the sub menu I was in.

Other than that I like it.
