Maximise the value of In-Cockpit Flight Training using your iPad or iPhone, to learn and practice Instrument Navigation, Anytime or Anywhere, using Radio Navigation Simulator USA, (RNS-USA).
RNS-USA, contains all the features of RNS-IFR PRO, but with the addition of a full USA Navaids FAA database.
RNS-USA is a precision 2D Flight Simulator and Training Aid - Learn to manage, interpret, and become familiar with the VOR, ADF (RMI or RBI) and Dual Needle RMI, DGYRO, HSI and DME instruments.
Students can start by simply finger moving the aircraft on the chart, observing the instrument response - progressing to full flight exercises, while tuning and managing the NAV radios, just as in real flight.
Fly pre-planned routes, or create your own, while navigating in a latitude and longitude training area.
Repeat as often as needed, always improving your instrument skills, anytime in a place of your choice.
Instructors can demonstrate to Students, basic VOR, ADF (RBI-RMI) with DME radio navigation, and advanced aspects using the HSI and Dual Needle RMI.
Students and Experienced pilots will in addition find RNS-USA valuable to prepare for an instrument rating or proficiency test, and fly in their own real world environment, using the USA FAA Database with FAA charts and documents, anywhere in the USA.
Flight Panels are optimised for iPad & iPhone, with support for retina displays.
The simulator operates in an Exercise Area of approx 150 x 200 nm, populated with VOR, VOR-DME and NDB Navaids & Airfields.

Some Customer Reviews:
RNS Apps have been an excellent means of visually depicting cause and effects of instrument inputs as it relates to VFR and IFR navigation. In my opinion, a must for students, pilots and instructors. CFI
I wish I'd had this tool when I first took my IMC rating - it would have saved me a lot of in flight training hours. This is a superb, intuitive, easy to use app. It will train your interpretation of the VOR and NDB so all you have to worry about in the air is flying the aeroplane
A must have for all pilots - This is an amazing app. Busy with my night rating and then IFR and this helps you understand radio navigation in minutes. If you are a flight instructor get it
This is a serious, professional, training aid. It covers real-time navigation with all the basic nav instruments
