Free trial was helpful

I decided to continue my pro subscription after the trial expired. Pro content includes a wide range of aviation related articles and the training videos are high quality. I’ve learned more than $5 a month worth of flying knowledge so I’d say it’s a good deal.


Happy with it

Good stuff, really like the variety of content and that it’s all about flying. No clutter, just Aviation

Bbhffdbh ,

Just not worth it.

I payed for the app just to receive repeated articles! Had trouble twice signing in and tech-support is just a waste of time.

I do not recommend!
