Radio Navigation Simulator IFR

Digital Aviation
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 IFR PRO, (RNS-IFR PRO).

RNS-IFR PRO 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 from simple to complex, while navigating in a latitude and longitude 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.

Experienced pilots will find RNS-IFR PRO valuable to prepare for an instrument rating or proficiency test.
