Excellent trainer app. Fantastic for practicing vor and adf tracking and incorporating wind into the tracking. Would give the extra star if there was an option to start from a random location with the plane not visible to practice getting back on track without visual clues from the map. Other than that I would highly recommend this app for anyone wanting an easy and cheap way to practice or to visualise their instrument procedures on the ground without the need for firing up a full sim on pc.
