Bsin339's Review of Holding Pattern TrainerReviewed on 8/28/19 1:53 PM
Saw some of the negative reviews, but read the responses and other positive reviews. THIS IS A GREAT APP. It’s important to read the hold instructions! If it states hold N on BEARING XXX TO (the “to” is critical) that is your inbound leg. If it says hold SE of the XXX VOR radial XXX, that is considered the outbound leg. After a few hours of practice and a lot of mistakes, it came together. Will continue to practice with the hopes that I can visualize this without drawing it out. My only reason for giving 4 stars and not 5 is that I think $5.99 is a bit over priced for an app that I won’t likely use after my check ride.

Great app. Proper terminology.
Mo the Pilot's Review of Holding Pattern TrainerReviewed on 6/22/18 3:31 PM
Military pilot and I used this app to get a better grasp on how to enter holdings. After using this app I have had 0 mistakes since . Furthermore the review recently published with the 1 star surprised me because any pilot would know the difference between a bearing and a radial . If you have a bearing convert it to a radial and use that to determine your holding procedure.

I’ve been using this app for the past month as I prepare for my instrument checkride, and it definitely helps with practicing the basic holding calculations. Wish there were more instructions with radials than bearings, since those seem to be more common in the real world, but it’s good to practice with both instructions. Also, it would be great if the visual aid showed you the heading to fly for the outbound teardrop correction or the inbound parallel correction.

Variable number text needs to be larger for these old eyes.

This app really helps my students grasp holding pattern entries. No more "deer in the headlights" looks. Plays like a game which is always good with the younger generation.

I'm using this app to study for an upcoming airline interview. It's awesome! It makes studying the dry, tricky topic of holding patterns fun! I like that the tutorial offers not 1, but 4 different ways to visualize pattern entry.

In addition to helping you learn, this app gives sample problems to help master holding procedures. I'm a CFI working on my CFII and plan to use this tool with students.
