FlightSafety International is proud to release this newly enhanced courseware app, known as FlightBag, which is a significant upgrade of the current FlightSafety eReader app.
FlightBag is a primarily a training and reference app for the iPad, enabling users the ability to more effectively and efficiently view, manage, and annotate their important training resources. Based upon client input, FlightBag has been designed with a new user interface, as well as enhanced, cloud-based document management and annotation capabilities, presenting a far superior experience over the existing eReader app. With the update to FlightBag, notes and annotations made by existing eReader subscribers will seamlessly transfer to FlightBag with this update.
FlightBag requires either an active FlightSafety eReader app subscription, or an existing/new training reservation.
FAVORITE DOCUMENTS & SUBSCRIPTIONS OVERVIEW
The new FlightBagTM app offers efficient and effective management, retrieval, and updating of these important resources. Users can access documents quickly on the main menu, and tag “favorites”, or documents they use most frequently, for direct access across subscriptions, and on a wide variety of devices.
A new document viewer and annotation tool makes note taking easier. Users can now access annotation tools without switching between editing and viewing modes. Tools are “front-and-center”, better organized, and provide better control over document and page features of the past.
CLOUD SYNCING & BACKGROUND UPDATES
Users can keep their documents and notes up-to-date during training. “Favorites”, notes, and annotations are synced seamlessly to the FlightSafety cloud, and may be accessed on all your devices*. With background updates, documents are flagged when there are revision updates, and users may commence reading a document, while the remaining updates continue downloading in the background.
Users may access their training materials from virtually any device*. FlightBag™ is available for the Apple iPad, as well is accessible via a web-browser version, providing access to the app for desktop computers and non-IOS tablet devices. A familiar look and feel ensures users the same interface on these complimentary versions.

Not ready for prime time.
This app was loaded and reloaded by a Flight Safety tech five times and it still won't run. My iPad is an Air 1 with 64G of memory. I have spent my entire recurrent training with nothing to study with. Maybe this app should have had a little more beta testing. And to top it all off, the contact number for technical support provides no one on the other end of the phone to help. They should have not even changed this app. The other one worked well. If it's not broke, don't fix it. Horrible app and a waste of my time.
Great Improvement from the original version
I really like the new look. The app is easy to use, easy to find documents. I love the annotation tools. Glad to see FlightSafety is finally working on this app again and looking forward to new versions!
Not Quite There
The page rendering is much smoother than with the previous version, but I can't seem to get the app to work like I think it should most of the time. Where are the hyperlinks in the QRH manuals? I can annotate pages, but there seems to be no way to remove or edit the annotations once they are in place. Definitely need an eraser or trash can for that. Right now it seems to be just a document reader.
