  • Changed Mind

    by Dddddd74fgdgdghhj

    While this cost more money than I wanted to spend, I have found the app valuable. As a member of a professional airline crew, I needed a way to have portable information and this turned out to be perfect. I have no books to lug around, and can easily settle discussions with the other pilots even while aloft. The app is worth it. JANUARY 2014 UPDATE: For $10 I expected the app to continue updates, but it will not. An iPad upgrade to ios7 is required for the newest material, and I haven't desired the upgrade. THE NEW FAR 117 AIRLINE REST RULES ARE NOT EVEN AVAILABLE ON MY REVISION. I no longer find the app usable, and regret buying it.

    by Nickname : none.

    I enjoy mostly the organization of the regs in this app. It is very easy for me to find applicable regulations quickly. I am suggesting this app for my students. 31Jan14 Kaom helped me with an issue where I wasn't getting my new account validated on my iPad. He corresponded with me by email several times until he got enough information to fix it. I am very happy that this was taken care of over a period of a few hours instead of a few days!

  • Easy to use with searchable text ...

    by Adamclimber

    This app makes finding material on any topic easy to find. Stable app with intuitive controls. Annual update was a simple in app purchase. Beats lugging around a new book every year.

  • Good app, even better customer support

    by Surejet

    The app itself is very useful for pilots and other aviation professionals. But the customer service/support of this app is even better. I had an issue once, the guys got back to me in a jiffy and fixed the problem!

  • Easier to use than the book

    by Bwpilot20

    I'm studying for my CFI and this app saves so much time. Easy interface, excellent search capability, and perfect for any pilot! Also the app keeps up with the latest FAR updates which makes it perfect for a CFI.

  • crashing

    by cmcfi

    Great app...until it started crashing 2 or 3 weeks ago. Several updates have come out since, but they don't seem to fix the crashing issue. Please fix, I need a current FARAIM for my work, and this is the easiest way to access it. Thanks

  • Love it!

    by Slowroll1038

    I'm a CFII and love having a great, easy to use set of aim/far that is much more up to date than the book I have used for over 30 years. It's a great value too! If you earn your living flying, this is the way to go ! Skip lunch and buy this one instead.

  • Awsome

    by Airfrm

    This is a great way to stay up to date on regulations without having to buy paper updates and minimizing your flight bag.

  • Indispensable for pilots

    by ksaboda

    The ability to bookmark and highlight text is great. As dull as the FARs are I like to read them everyday and this app is perfect for that. Buying paper copies is a pain and so is carrying them! I was thinking this wouldn't be as good as the ASA app but I think this app is designed well.

  • FARS

    by xfr8rflyr

    I'm in the FAA and work with these reg's daily. This app is by far better than any reference we otherwise use. Love the search function.

  • Rey useful

    by pilgrimpilot

    Excellent app. Good search feature. Much better than lugging the big book around.

  • A+++++

    by Rocktoy65

    Awesome app!!! Having the CFRs on my IPad is the best tool I van have!!

  • Inspector

    by Fly safe too

    I am an FAA Inspector and find this to be very useful in my day to day surveillance. I no longer have to pack around bulky regulations, or worry about connectivity. I have it all on my iPad. I would recommend this product.

  • Great value!

    by Ldylightfoot

    One small payment for years of updates? Yes, please! As an Avionics technician, having the FARs literally at hand is extremely useful! Love this app!

  • Useful

    by Arnaud Augier de Moussac

    Good apps yet not easy sometimes to retrieve info Sometime more luck googling So kind of loose the benefit

  • Instructor

    by 145ODA Man

    Solid program for the experienced and well as the those entering the aviation field. I work for a major FAA domestic repair station with ODA authority and this is incredibly useful tool. I also teach part time at the nearby A&P school so this program is essential. Easy and complete search capability. Makes writing lessons much easier with the information at my finger tips.

  • Excellent resource

    by Vader AK

    Retired airline capt now working on the dark side. Excellent resource, easy to use, mobile instant access. Great app.

  • Valuable Tool

    by ApacheHelo

    This resource has been very useful on a daily basis for me. I am both a military and civilian pilot and I use this App almost exclusively from the paper copy! It's a must have on your IPad or phone!

  • Good app

    by Rob in RI

    I would like to be able to read a entire part rather than just one section at a time. Would also be nice to be able to book mark sections I have to use all the time or Corbett where they are. All and all not bad

  • Great App!!!

    by JNasty172

    I'm a Flight Instructor. I use this every day. Best FAR app.

  • Update charges

    by Flyngunny

    This was a great app..... until they started charging for updates. I bought this app when it first came out, now I have to pay again for updates? No loyalty for long time customers. Do yourself a favor and get the ASA app and pay onetime.

  • Good app but anyone know how to stop the auto renewal?

    by JoeG1320

    $9.95 is not a bad price but it is decidedly inconvenient that there I no way to stop the auto renewal.

  • ELG

    by Elg&@'

    The best, absolutely the best.

  • FAR

    by Stanbrv

    Great app. Easy to lookup the FAR to answer the pilot's lounge arguments.

  • Great but....

    by Rag III

    Would like to have the ability to view and scroll through an entire Part at one time, instead of just one section at a time. Ex: Be able to read Part 91 in its entirety not just 91.1, then back up, select 91.7, and so on.

  • Terrific reference and very easy to use!

    by Air Fed

    As an Aviation Safety Inspector (operations) for the FAA, I can honestly say that after two years of using this App I still find it to be a valuable source of reference and information especially when out in the field. It is easy to use, and sure beats carrying around volumes of regulations. I've use some of the other similar type Apps, however for me, this one is the one I prefer. I only wish somebody would come out with a mobile App entitled "FSIMS" (FAA Order 8900.1)

  • Excellent

    by HamxaAlloush


  • Very convenient

    by Murph560

    A very needed reference book in an easy to use electronic format. Saves me carrying a large cumbersome book to class and gives me the information much faster.

  • Excellent

    by Matozam

    Very usefull and friendly stuff for pilots

  • Farr aim

    by Rick-W9999

    Very informative.

  • CP

    by 223JP

    It is all there

  • Good app

    by Saves where you left off

    I have set a goal to read the entire AIM this year. I like the fact that the app saves where I left off so I can read a page whenever I have a minute.

  • C'est Super!

    by Nigel Tam

    Quick and easy! Saves carrying and continuously buying an up to date FAR/AIM. DPE was impressed at its ease of use.

  • Not too bad

    by HeloCFII

    The indenting of the sections makes it much easier to read. As a CFII, it's very practical app.

  • Excellent!

    by Drewh10

    Finally! I've been looking for an app like this for a long time. Definitely beats carrying that heavy book in my flight bag.

  • FAR/AIM is now funner!

    by Rockynewf

    An always up to date FAR/AIM as thin as an iPad with awesome search makes being current almost fun!

  • DAC Aviation Instructor Writer

    by Hellfire Launcher

    I do not need 6000 words to describe tis application when one will do ....... FANTASTIC !!!

  • Worth it

    by archiescom

    Absolutely worth every penny. A real timesaver.

  • From iPHone to iPad great reference

    by PGCDave

    Makes the FAR handy. A bear of a book shrunk down to iPhone size and still useable. Now that I would want to read the FAR on my iPhone but very handy to have. On the iPad it is comfortable to read with out having to cart around the paper volume. Search feature is great.

  • Erick

    by Erickgringo

    Great app.. The best one for aviation...

  • I like it

    by EsteCon

    Great app and I like the hyperlinks.

  • Aviator

    by PFEDC-8

    As a reference, great app!


    by Off line player

    At first search engine was unexpected and frustrating but once you understand what it does it is great. Makes searching for a regulation easy

  • Great app

    by Den141

    Replaces two full Jeppesen binders.

  • FAR/AIM Great App

    by Fixman1

    Great app. Love the search function. Absolute must have for pocket size reference to the CFR's.

  • Great app

    by a very iphone user

    I love the search feature. Always a pain to find what you need in the paper version. With this app you can quickly find what you need.

  • Great tool.

    by AlCFIpilot

    Has all aviation parts and NTSB 830. Hyperlinks regs to other regs when they refer to one another. Well laid out. Totally worth it.

  • Eh

    by David Hugh Martin

    Search feature is poor. Try searching Class G for example. Sometimes 0 results. The content is displayed as per the actual book versions rather than using the app and the design features to design an interface and an experience that makes the FAR and AIM far more digestible. This app is boring and doesn't elevate upon the printed versions.

  • Phenomenal !!!

    by Ares214

    The search options make it easy to find anything, anywhere in the FARs. Also having ALL of the FARs, not just a few, in a format that doesn't weigh anything more than the devices we already carry is great. Will never buy another paper FAR/AIM again!

  • Mr.

    by Av8RmAyeR

    Better than paper any day, gr8 layout and very easy to use!
