Everyone has their own ideas of the fundamentals of aviation, but they generally boil down to:
Using apps and watching replays is not included in these foundational principles. MyFlight3D is not intended for direct use during flight.
Once airborne, always remember:
Aviate | Navigate | Communicate
The MyFlight3D mobile app gathers data while you're in flight. Once complete,
it will compress and securely load the data to your free online account
for viewing, debriefing and storage forever! Many Apple devices have
built-in GPS antennas, and thanks to this great technology, you can very
simply and quickly start a recording, enjoy your flight, then stop the
recording after engine shutdown. Review the list below for Apple devices
that are immediately capable of using MyFlight3D.
Your learning experience will absolutely be doubled with ability to completely replay your flights. All of the ground training, chair flying, and instructor discussions will instill a maturity and professional growth previously unavailable to pilots. Not only can you replay past flights, you can use flights of other students and instructors to prepare for future lessons. We've all worked hard and saved for those precious flight hours. Maximize your learning now, make each flight hour worth every penny with MyFlight3D!

require the use of an external GPS antenna. We have had great success with the SkyPro XGPS brand of products such as this receiver:
SkyPro XGPS160 GPS Receiver.
This is a simple GPS receiver that sends the location to your mobile device via a Bluetooth connection. Even if your device is GPS capable, we still recommend one of these wireless receivers due to the ability to place the receiver by a window and keep your phone protected in a safe place.
