The android application market is making it easier for people who want to become pilots, and have pilots life insurance, to achieve their goals, according to General Aviation News.
There are now apps available to assist with Federal Aviation Administration knowledge exams in: sport pilot, private pilot, instrument rating, commercial pilot, certified flight instructor, airline transport pilot, flight engineer, military competency, AMT general, AMT airframe and AMT powerplant.
These applications will allow users to study their selected subject using practice tests that mirror the actual exams given by the FAA, the news source reports. They can also assist flight instructors during training, according to Pilotbug.
Not to be outdone by its competitor, the iPad is also featuring several FAA training applications, and going a step further. The FAA approved an app in March that provides aviation mapping for flights, according to TG Daily.
The program was put through rigorous testing before approval, and the iPad was even dropped 51,000 feet in a rapid decompression simulation to see if it could withstand the rigors of flight, the news source reports. The app did not crash once during testing.
