The Finer Points has released Ground School, a new flight training system for the iPad.

The iPad app “completely reinvents the way flight training products work,” says CFI Jason Miller, the forced behind The Finer Points.

Ground School is divided into two parts: Knowledge and Skill.

The Knowledge section contains all the animations, videos, and unlimited practice tests you’d find in most legacy flight training products, but Ground School “delivers so much more,” Miller notes.

“Expert CFI tips are peppered throughout the app to provide insights gained from 20 years of experience,” he says. “The FAA textbooks and important ACs are all there with page references.”

The Skills section is like taking flight lessons from a real CFI, he adds.

Each lesson starts with a briefing, then moves to the airplane for the actual lesson, then returns for the debrief, which covers all of the common errors.

The in-flight videos are filmed using a custom video setup called Pilot Perspective, which puts the viewer in the pilot’s seat. Four cameras help the user identify the proper sight pictures.
