Cockpit Challenge is for pilots, student pilots, and flight instructors. Cockpit Challenge is a simple, unique training aid that will help you develop superior instrument scanning skills. Try to keep the airplane level while you deal with emergencies in the cockpit. React to the emergencies, but don’t forget to fly the airplane. You will score best if you can keep the airplane level through the stress of alerts.

Cockpit Challenge is designed by an ATP rated flight instructor with over 25 years of experience teaching other pilots how to deal with emergencies in the cockpit.

Cockpit Challenge is not a flight simulator. Please don’t expect a flight simulator. However, we believe Cockpit Challenge is a useful training aid that will allow you to improve your Cockpit Resource Management skills, while also having fun competing against other pilot’s scores.

One of the biggest problems in the cockpit is the lack of good Cockpit Resource Management (the ability to manage your tasks effectively under stressful and time critical situations). Even experienced pilots can fall into the trap of becoming overly fixated on one alert or another, and ultimately may forget to fly the airplane.

Each training session is 2 minutes in length. Keep the plane as level as you can as you deal with alerts in the cockpit. See if you can get good at balancing your attention between tasks. See how well you do compared to others, and try to be the best!

Everything is now included in the App purchase price, including Advanced Mode, the Analysis view, and online scores. There is no need for additional purchases.

Finally, if you use Cockpit Challenge, please, please, please visit iTunes and provide either a rating and/or a review. We developers can use all the positive ratings and reviews we can get!

Thanks, and I hope you enjoy using Cockpit Challenge!

Great Concept!!

I am an instrument rated private pilot working towards my commercial/multi-engine ratings (though temporarily not flying since I'm a full time aeronautical engineering masters student). This simple app is great for training your eyes to scan the instruments. The bad reviewers are obviously not pilots and therefore would have no idea of the usefulness of the app (This is a training aid/"game" for REAL PILOTS mr. "top gun crackhead").

Again, the app is intended to train your eyes to scan the instruments--it is NOT a sim (read the author's app description). If you're looking for a full sim, look at X-Plane.

I would offer a few suggestions, though they might be out of context for this particular app (would make it closer to an IFR simulator) considering its simplicity:
- pitch control
- working "big six" flight instruments, (DG/HSI, VSI, AI/ADI, Airspeed, Turn Coord, and Altimeter), and working engine instruments
- a power/throttle/torque slider to control airspeed
- realistic instrument failures (teaches students to use other instruments as backup--say, if the AI/ADI failed)

I realize this might be a lot to ask but maybe 1 or 2 situations where the pilot would be required to maintain proper attitude for an ILS approach while scanning instruments.

Very useful app!
