March 9, 2013 - Nashua, NH - PilotWorkshop.com’s free app shows up as the #1 most-popular iPad app for Pilot Training in the App Store. The app features 20 free training videos and audios from PilotWorkshop’s team of nationally-recognized flight instructors. The 5 Star rated app runs on both iPad and iPhone and can be found by searching for PilotWorkshop or “pilot training” in the App Store, or at http://pilotworkshop.com/freeapp.
PilotWorkshop.com founder Mark Robidoux commented, “We wanted to provide pilots with a lot of solid information they can actually implement in their cockpit. In turn, pilots are voting with their downloads and made our app #1 for pilot training.” The videos and audios are taken from PilotWorkshops family of proficiency training products and cover topics like:
- Single Pilot IFR
- ATC communications
- Aviation weather
- and more
“We realize pilots are busy and often don’t have time to sit in front of a computer and watch a two-hour video. That’s why we organized our training in ten to 15-minute lessons. It lets a pilot listen to an audio or watch a video when they have a few minutes of downtime,” explained Robidoux. WINGS credits can be earned for completion of each series of workshops within the app.
