Radio Navigation Simulator Basic - IFR Trainer

Digital Aviation
Make IFR flight training simpler - The app that flight instructors use to demonstrate radio navigation and students use to learn, consolidate and self test.

Experienced pilots will also find the simulator valuable to prepare for an instrument rating or proficiency test.

Radio Navigation Simulator Basic is a precision 2D flight simulator and training aid, designed for iPad and iPhone, that enables pilots and students to practice, understand and become proficient in the use and management of NAV, DME and ADF instruments, displayed with an Directional Gyro.
