ASA has built a reputation for providing the aviation community with the most accurate and reliable FAR/AIM products available. The FAR/AIM app continues this tradition, containing information from Titles 14 and 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 and 49 CFR) pertinent to pilots, flight instructors, and flight crew, combined with the Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM), and Pilot/Controller Glossary. ASA FAR/AIM app features: • Free Updates provided. • All of the ASA FAR/AIM and FAR for Flight Crew book contents are included: 14 CFR Parts 1, 5, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 39, 43, 48, 61, 63, 65, 67, 68, 71, 73, 89, 91, 97, 103, 105, 107, 110, 117, 119, 120, 121, 125, 133, 135, 136, 137, 141, 142; 49 CFR Parts 172, 175, and 830; TSA 1544 and 1552. • The complete Aeronautical Information Manual including color figures. • Pilot/Controller Glossary included. • Study by Certificate lists for Private, Remote, Sport, Instrument/CFII, Commercial, Flight Instructor, Flight Engineer, and ATP allows aviators to hone their studies to the pertinent rules for their individual certificate and operation. • Text search helps you find what you’re looking for in the FAR, AIM or both. • Profile and Landscape viewing available for easy reading and viewing figures. • Ability to increase text size.

Then don’t get this FAR app. It is 1) out of date 2) without good search I have tried all the FAR/AIM apps. This is one of the worst, riding on their publishing reputation.
I tried to search “minimum safe altitudes” in the search bar but the regulation won’t come up. It should because that is literally the title for 91.119. But it’s way better than paper.
The app has all of the information of the FAR/AIM, but almost no digital convenience factors. It does NOT sync highlights and bookmarks across devices, and apparently the highlighting does not transfer correctly when new revisions come out. I have random highlighting in sections I haven’t read, that starts and stops in the middle of words. It would also be nice to be able to draw notes either in a margin, or on the pages directly.
Hasn’t updated since May even though 2021 FAR/AIM has been released.
Thought this was a great app until I realized it is missing many regs. 23.149 for example. Very convenient to not have to carry a book but looks like I’ll need to anyway if I want the complete document.
I love being able to search for things and have it very accessible on my iPad. I have two minor issues with the app. 1. I wish I could sign in and sync my highlights across multiple devices. I find myself studying things on my phone or iPad Pro and then later I Look at my iPad mini and it’s not highlighted on that device. It would be great to have that synced across all my devices. 2. It would AWESOME to have the ability to highlight in different colors and insert my own notes. That way I could customize the way I studied or remember the color of something I highlighted, or write down/notate a saying that helps me remember a regulation. If this app had these functions, I would absolutely give it 5 stars and would recommend that everybody get this app. But for now, its just somewhat convenient.
Need to publish the current 2020 update. Still 16 Sept 2019.
Please add a night mode option. While reading this in the evening, it is blindingly white. Please add the ability to have a dark mode where the background is black and the text is white. The option to set it manually or have it tied to the system theme would be even better. Also, there is a bug not allowing you to change font size. The buttons A+ and A- do nothing at all.
I can’t find the glossary! Anyone any clue?
Regulations sometimes don't open, bookmarks sometimes will work amd not show a blank page. Search function for some reason can omly find a few results, if any. Doesn't work at all if you use more than 1 word.
