I paid 34.99 for this App and nothing will play. It showes all the chapters, but when clicked on the screen only resets. I tryed all chapters and nothing works. Come on Sporty's...I support all that you do and have provided me with in my flight training...Make this right, for a customer that has spent hundreds of dollars with your company

5/5 stars

Great help

This is very helpful in teaching communications. Great visuals, and it's nice to actually hear the pilots communicating with ATC in all the classes of airspace. Well done!
