    Game Information

    The perfect mobile tool for Instructors to demonstrate radio navigation techniques, and for students to consolidate and self test. Experienced pilots will also find the simulator valuable to prepare for an instrument rating or proficiency test.

    ●● This version of Radio Navigation Simulator, includes all of the features of the Student Edition... with the addition of an HSI, Dual Needle RMI, and a choice of five flight panel configurations for the instrument sets ●●

    Radio Navigation Simulator is a precision 2D flight simulator and training aid, designed for iPad, iPhone & iPod touch, that enables pilots and students to practice, understand and become proficient in the use and management of VOR, DME and ADF/RMI instruments, displayed with an HSI or Directional Gyro on a choice of five realistic flight panels.

    For students, it’s easy to zoom-in, to either a single beacon, or a set of beacons, drag the airplane around to different locations, and watch the needles react.  When ready, fly a prepared exercise or your own routes, in a flight area of 200 x 140 nms, with more than 40 navaid facilities.  Printable latitude and longitude area charts are free to download.

    ★★★★★ "The best IFR training app for the iPhone/iPad. It's very, very good."
    ★★★★ "A wonderful app, easily worth the price. The design is excellent and very well thought out."
    ★★★★★ "Does pretty well what it says it does. A useful tool for teaching/learning VOR/ADF navigation. Proposed updates make it sound that future versions will be even more capable. Good, prompt support."
    ★★★★★ "Great learning tool!"
    ★★★★★ "Fantastic trainer!"

    Review by an experienced airline pilot & aviation blogger, who utilised RNS for a Boeing 737 check ride --
    "Little did I know that the 30 minutes I spent playing with his application was the reason I flew the approach so awesomely!"
