what our users say about us.
I thought the Training App was a really helpful tool during my type-rating training, easy to use and an excellent interactive way of going through both the simple and complex failures. Will be using to keep myself current and would certainly recommend!
After 15 years of experience on the Airbus family and as a direct entry captain to a new company, Use Before Flight helped me a lot to consolidate my knowledge, review ECAM drills and quickly adapt to new company procedures. It's interactivity and user-friendly interface are great tools to prepare for simulator checks, illustrate failures and prepare metal models in advance. I would recomend it to any pilot, regardless of whether experienced or not. Thank you for a great app!
The Training App continues to be the most important and comprehensive airline flight trainer on the market today. I am definitely indebted to the service provided by your company which has helped my airline career immensely
A must have for your type rating. Very in-depth and interactive drills, it really pays off and makes a difference! Congrats to these awesome developers!
