Description

Flight Chain App gives you every NTSB accident report in your pocket for convenient, easy access to help you become a better pilot.


WHY READ ACCIDENT REPORTS?
Most aircraft accidents are caused by a chain of events rather than just one error. Reading accident reports helps you know how, when and why they happen so you'll learn what not to do.


WHY FLIGHT CHAIN APP?
We were surprised by a flight instructor's observation who, after more than 40 years of flying, was amazed at how many pilots of various experience levels aren't aware of the value of NTSB reports.

We also kept hearing a common theme among pilots: the NTSB website isn't the friendliest to use, especially on mobile.

Flight Chain App makes your flying life easier by giving you accident info that's quicker to digest. More convenient and less frustrating. For both you and your iOS device.

Browsing accidents

I like the new trends feature. Helpful to see at a glance which flight situations have the most accident occurrences so i know what to focus on.

Developer Response ,

Great to hear, thanks for letting us know!

Not helpful unless you pay monthly fee

The app doesn’t really do anything a quick google search won’t tell you unless you pay the monthly fee for the premium service. Kind of a disappointment.

Developer Response ,

Thank you! We appreciate you taking the time to let us know your thoughts. You are right that some of the content in the app can be found via Google searches. One of the app's goals is to package all that up in a convenient mobile app format to help save you time so you don't have to cull through web searches. At the same time, the app brings some unique features of its own (viewing the accident chain so you can see the chain of events, viewing accident trends and reading NTSB reports by trend to better understand how certain types of accidents happen, providing safety tips that relate to a given accident report, to name a few). The nominal monthly fee helps ensure we can continue providing this service to the aviation ccommunity. Stay tuned for more app updates in 2019. We have plans in the coming months to release additional features to add more value, some of which won't require a monthly fee. If you have further feedback on what would make the app more valuable for you, please let us know by sending a support ticket from within the app so we can continue making improvements. Thanks!

Misleading Purchase

Don’t buy unless you’re prepared to pay more at each step along the way. The non-subscription details are no more valuable than the NTSB database. Paid for an app that then requires monthly subscriptions for the features that caught my attention to buy in the first place.

Developer Response ,

Thank you, we appreciate you taking the time to let us know your thoughts. To be clear, our app description on the App Store download page (and our own website at www.flightchainapp.com) clarifies what features come with the app download versus those that require an optional in-app subscription purchase. You are right that some of the content in the app can be found on the NTSB website. One of the app's goals is to package all that up in a convenient mobile app format to make browsing NTSB information more convenient and less frustrating for you and your iOS device (if you've tried browsing the NTSB website on a smartphone, you know what we mean). At the same time, the app brings some unique features of its own (viewing the accident chain so you can see the chain of events, viewing accident trends and reading NTSB reports by trend to better understand how certain types of accidents happen, providing safety tips that relate to a given accident report, to name a few). The nominal monthly fee helps ensure we can continue providing this service to the aviation ccommunity. We have plans to release additional features to add more value to your app download, some of which won't require a monthly fee.
