App Store (Switzerland) Review – ‘A highly valuable contribution to landing safety’ – ‘von FlightNav’



‘The studies and publications regarding the Jacobson Flare have always been the ultimate reference for me regarding a calculable and safe final approach and landing of an aircraft. For this reason, I was awaiting this iPad app impatiently, but it still exceeded my expectations.

From the aviation point of view, the Jacobson Flare is introduced and explained in a very intuitive and comprehensive way, regarded from any conceivable point of view, and finally enriched with very helpful videos and calculators.

Such an amount of thorough information is a challenge regarding an app’s structure, navigation and user friendliness. However, the producers of this app have thought of everything an outstanding app needs to consist of! With two distinct presentations in landscape and portrait, the user gets all the information needed, being in any specific context.

I highly recommend this app to all pilots seeking a better understanding of the flare manoeuvre, in order to perform consistently safe landings.’
