10 incredible aircraft, 250 stunning pictures and 40 minutes of video that makes this APP the best for pilots and people who love flying.
(PRWEB) June 21, 2011
The new FLIGHTTEST app for iPad puts you in the cockpit of 10 soul-stirring aircraft, including a never-before insight into the greatest of them all... NASA's incredible Space Shuttle, as it reaches the end of its 30-year career.
Just two weeks before it’s last mission, iPad owners get the opportunity with this new video- and picture-packed app to discover what it was like from the pilot’s chair to bring it back to Earth, with tons of added information about Man’s greatest machine; did you know it takes the equivalent energy of 16 nuclear power stations to get 2000 tons of Shuttle, cargo and fuel into space?
The informative, educational, and downright fun app has been created by the same team behind some of the best magazines and web content in aviation publishing, LOOP Digital Media. The Shuttle features alongside nine other aircraft tests, making this app incredible value at just £1.79.
World-class pilots bring beautifully detailed reports, including flying Cessna’s best-selling business jet, gliders, a record-breaking fast turboprop, a brand new turbine helicopter, the world’s newest and most extreme aerobatic aircraft, special mission flights like landing on glaciers in the Alps, and of a beautiful Italian exotic.
With features written by expert test pilots, pictures from award-winning photographers, and exclusive video and interviews, it's the best app yet for aviation fans to take their love of flight wherever they go, and for non-pilots to savour the joys of flying – to inspire, or just entertain.
With over 250 beautiful pictures and nearly 40 minutes of video, FLIGHTTEST is sensational value for aircraft lovers everywhere. The 2-in-1 app reads vertically for reports and features, while horizontal lets you enjoy the very best of the amazing pictures which capture every one of these aircraft in their full beauty. Video works in either mode.
