The Problem

Flying a plane isn't too hard. Accurately following procedures is the hard part.

Why spend thousands trying to learn in the plane when the learning could take place on your computer?

1. Practice

Use Pilot Approach to practice instrument approaches online.

There are no flight controls, so all your attention can be on making the correct decisions.

2. Learn

Pilot Approach gives you advice and records mistakes to help you learn.

Each simulation also generates a report which can be reviewed by your instructor.

3. Apply

Once you become an expert on Pilot Approach, apply your knowledge when you fly!

This new feature is under development!

Scenario Arcade will be a text-based decision-making game. You will be given a scenario, then answer questions to hopefully end with the best outcome.

There will be both fun and challenging scenarios. These will be a great way to learn instrument knowledge in a practical way while having fun.

Every user can create their own scenarios for the world to play!


This new feature is also under development!

Unlike other test prep, these quizzes will gather input on your confidence for each question. Our algorithms will tell you which areas you think you know, but actually don't.

It is more dangerous for a pilot to think they are right than know they are wrong. That is the goal of these quizzes.

Additionally, each question will be custom-made by REAL flight instructors! This will provide you with unique and challenging questions.
