FLIGHT TRAINING APPS RELEASES
'PRIVATE PILOT-GROUND PORTION'

If you've ever wanted to be a fly on the
wall of the ground session of a private
pilot checkride, Flight Training Apps
makes it happen in Private Pilot-Ground
Portion. High-quality HD camera work
employed in the company's Private
Pilot-Flight Portion app (see "Preflight,"
December 2012 Flight Training) is at work
here as a designated pilot examiner sits
down with a private pilot applicant to
conduct the question-and-answer session.
There are no flying sequences, but the
app works hard to overcome what could
have been a static presentation. As the
examiner questions the student, pertinent
sections of the FARs appear on screen.
Chart segments illustrate flight planning
and lost procedures. Checklists pop up
during a discussion of emergency procedures. A light gun signal chart appears
as the DPE and the pilot walk through a
scenario in which she has lost her radio.
The course is divided into eight
sections: eligibility; certificates and
documents; airworthiness requirements;
cross-country flight planning; performance and limitations; national airspace
system; lost procedures and diversion;
and aircraft systems, as well as insights
from the examiner and a flight instructor.
Private Pilot Course-Ground Portion is
available for iOS, Android, instant downloads for PC and Mac, and DVD.
Price: $29.99

CREATIVE WRITING PROFESSOR and
Flight Training contributor W. Scott Olsen
has answered the fundamental question
of why we fly in his new book Prairie Sky.
Ironically, Prairie Sky isn't really a book
about flying. It's a book about exploration
and the thrills of doing something unique.
With Prairie Sky, his tenth book, Olsen
has established himself as one of the country's foremost creative writers on flying
and all things aviation. In it he eloquently
describes the landscape as seen from a few
thousand feet in a small airplane, in the
way we all try to do for friends and family
who don't understand our passions. He
has the ability to take what many would
consider a normal flight and turn it into
something extraordinary. That's primarily because Olsen approaches the airplane
like Columbus approached a ship-as a
way to get to new worlds.
Prairie Sky should be required reading
on your next cancelled lesson. It's available from the University of Missouri Press
(http://press.umsystem.edu) for $19.95 or
other online book retailers.
