When you first open the app, the app will automatically download the rest of the 1.5 gigabytes of the book. During this time, we strongly recommend using a high speed internet connection through a hotspot and leaving the app open. Download times can vary greatly upon using a cellular network, iPad, and/or simply closing the app. After the download finishes and the book opens, a network connection is not required to view the book, but certain links in the book do require internet access.

EXCELLENT book! And NO problems with downloading or operation
The photos and information are incredible. Whether you’re interested in shooting at your local airport, or getting out to the pylons or or “High G Ridge” at Reno, or trying your hand at air-to-air, this book is for you. Moose gives a lot of valuable information about techniques and equipment. He talks about the equipment he uses, but he gears the book to all of us—whether novice on a budget or a professional who is moving into a new genre.
A previous reviewer noted some issues with the operation of the app. I experienced none of the problems PWC-1234 reported. He reports that it has to download each time he opens; what is actually happening is the book is loading into the memory, not downloading from the internet each time. There is a lot of interactive material and it takes a few seconds (no more than 10-15 in my experience) to load into memory. The book DID take a while to download (though that may be related to my internet speed). I would suggest starting the download before bed and letting it run.
In short, I can’t recommend this book enough!
Stand alone app is slow
I purchased this app when it first came out based on Moose Peterson's reputation as a Nikon legend and world reknown photgrapher. The content and pictures do not dissapoint. They are stellar and the information is the best I have read on getting started in aviation photography. This app was then rolled into thier Moose Press app and those that purchased the stand alone app could not import it nor were they given the option to do so. I was told I needed to buy the app again at 12.99 to get it into the new Moose Press. That was dissapointing! The stand alone app also is requiring me to download it every time I want to read the content, and it is very slow. I cannot in good faith rate this app low as the concept and content is again very good. I just think if they are going to consolidate all there e-books and publications, they should find away to allow import into their all in one Moose Press without us having to buy it again.
