iPad CoursewareTrain Using the Latest Technology
When you train with ATP, you train using the latest technology. Your iPad gives you access to courseware, charts and approach plates, and test prep that you'll use in training. Airlines use electronic charts in their flight decks, and you'll use them during your pilot training.
ATP requires students to have an iPad with iOS 10.3 or later with WiFi + Cellular. Some features in ForeFlight Mobile require iOS 11 or higher.
Cellular is required because it provides the GPS receiver for ForeFlight and improves situational awareness. You do not have to activate a cellular data plan to use the GPS.
ATP recommends the medium-sized iPads (10.5” iPad Pro or 9.7" iPad) which balance ease of studying with a practical size for use in the airplane. Pick whichever model you like best. Please note that ForeFlight no longer supports the iPad 1, 2, 3, iPad Mini 1, iPhone 4 and 4S, and the iPod Touch 4 and older.
