Just a glorified advertising brochure
The app is slick, sounds good in the description, but has no functionality. It just describes programs and pricing for a Texas flight school. I'm looking for what the other reviews and the app description said: a tool to enhance current skills and add a rating. I would certainly have considered the advertised school if the material was well presented. But, given the deceptive nature of the come-on... 'Tain't at all likely I'll go there for my training.
I love it!
I can't believe how great this app is. I can see and do everything US Aviation Academy! The technology is a wonderful gift! The first aviation academy I know of that has it! Safety and efficient is what this academy is all about!
Not an app - an ad for a flight school.
The positive reviews are from the developer. It's free, so no big deal, but they should list what it is in the description. Sporty's or King seem better in any case.
