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 begin at your knowledge level, work at your own pace, and get information individual to you.
• A course that requires you to be connected to the internet.
• A cheat sheet to memorize questions. Not only will it prepare you for the exams, it will make you a better pilot.
• A company which disappears after a short time.  In business since 1988, in the same location and same contact info.

Requires any MS Windows after Win 98. Not compatible with MAC or IOS. Once installed, a net connection is not necessary. Individual license packages are for single users. They may not be used in a Flight School.
