Flying with iOS and Android moving-map and flight-planning apps has become common in cockpits worldwide, and Sporty’s Pilot Shop vice president of product development John Zimmerman knows firsthand that even with an intuitive touchscreen interface, flying apps can be complicated. That’s why Sporty’s announced during Sun ’n Fun 2013 that it has developed training courses to teach pilots the intricacies and the tricks for flying with tablets.

Sporty’s most recent entry into training for apps department is “Flying with Foreflight,” which it is releasing this month as a streaming course for $29.95. “We’ve packed this 60-minute course with a ton of information, including how to keep your digital charts up to date,” said Zimmerman. “We also provide a preflight iPad checklist we think all pilots should use.”

The course is platform independent, according to Zimmerman, and will play on any browser in any operating system.
