What Tomvale Software is not:

• An app which you download to your smartphone, (an unsuitable device for the purpose).
• An online course which you keep paying for.
• A course where the material is the same for all students. You can begin at your knowledge level, work at your own pace, and get information individual to you.
• A cheat sheet used to memorize questions. The software provides real understanding of the topics, and not only will it prepare you for the exams, it will give you better retention, and make you a better pilot.
• A company which disappears after a short time. We have been in business since 1988, in the same location with the same contact info.

The Software Includes:

Thousands of Questions to prepare you for the exams, with a Question Order Menu. Banks are ordered as in the Transport Canada Exams. All beginning licences include the PSTAR and a 'Novice' Bank, and Commercial Licences include a 'Challenge' Bank.  It also lets you email or text a set of random questions to your device.

A Progress Chart which keeps track of your last 30 scores on all the question banks.
A Dictionary/Glossary with definitions,  photographs and videos.

Full feature Aviation Calculator
