About this app

Ever wanted to fly a glider? It's incredible fun and, some would contend, the "purest" form of flying that man can do. It's you, the glider, and the sky - and not much else. Whether gliders are your first exposure to piloting or you are thinking of adding a glider rating to an existing pilot certificate, you are embarking on an exhilarating journey. Alas, between you and your goal of becoming a proficient and certified glider pilot is the little matter of the FAA combination flight and oral test known as the "checkride." This is where we can help.

RideReady is fully compatible with FAA ACS (Airman Certification Standards) checkrides and our editorial team will work to keep it up to date with ACS as ACS further evolves.

This software can prepare you for any or all of: Private Pilot Glider, Commercial Pilot Glider, and CFI-Glider (Flight Instructor).

Our RideReady: Glider Pilot software will, in an interactive question-answer presentation style, take you through the key knowledge points as determined by the FAA and experienced glider pilots that are crucial for safe and effective glider operation.

RideReady: Glider Pilot is both for pilots who already have an existing pilot certificate/rating and want to add a glider rating (either private or commercial - this software works for both) and for those whose entry into flying is via gliders. Regardless of which category you fall into, you will have to take an FAA checkride and demonstrate to an examiner not complete mastery of every last technical detail, but rather a solid functional knowledge of terms, procedures, and contingencies associated with soaring / glider flying coupled with sound judgment and effective problem solving skills.

This app can be used:

* Before you show up for you soaring / gliding flight course, so that you minimize training time and cost
* After you have begun your training but before your glider / soaring checkride, as a tool to help check your preparedness and fill in any gaps in your knowledge
* For years after you get your glider rating, as a refresher tool. RideReady: Glider Pilot includes free lifetime upgrades.

RideReady features more questions than oral exam prep booklets thus helping you be more prepared for a wide variety of realistic questions. Additionally, RideReady's content is also more illustrated and our explanations more detailed to really help you understand the material.

Please note that after downloading this app, the app will need to check for updated data from our servers.

RideReady is the smart pilot's secret to checkride success!
