Mac AppStore apps are for Apple mac laptops and desktops only!

The Mac™ apps on this page work great with your Mac desktop or Laptop - however, they are NOT intended for use with your PC, iPhone/iPad/iPod, Android device, or anything else.

Things work great when you purchase Mac-compatible apps directly from the Mac AppStore™.

These Mac apps (programs) have been needed to be specifically designed, programmed, and tested (a process involving hundreds to thousands of hours and specialized skills and tools) to work on Mac™ laptops and desktops and they certainly do work great on them. However, this also means that they work on Mac™ laptop and desktop devices only--purchases made via the Mac AppStore™ are not compatible with and will not work on, for example, your PC, iPhone/iPad/iPod or Android device.

If you'd like to use a given app for both your Mac and its equivalent piece of software / app for your PC, iPhone/iPad/iPod, or Android device (where one is available), as some people do in order to get 'the best of both worlds', you would need to purchase these separately. This 'a la carte' system ensures that you pay for only that which you intend to use and is fair to all involved. At any rate, it could not be differently due to Apple's sensible policy that its Mac AppStore is for Mac apps only and effectively that no 'intermingling' is allowed.

We thank you for your understanding that we are obliged to follow all other software vendors in following Apple's policies in this regard.

After much time and a lot of hard work (thanks for your patience!), we've finally released our GroundSchool for Mac titles and we're exceptionally pleased with the results. Now, you can study 'natively' on your Mac with our best-in-breed FAA knowledge prep:

  • All FAA questions from our editor-managed database Not some measely pared-down question set - you get the full thing complete with our detailed, illustrated explanations, allowing you to do all of your FAA knowledge test prep study right on your iPhone.
  • Integrated Upgrades - get upgrades directly from our servers. So, when our editors change things, you get access to the latest and greatest quickly. This is REALLY IMPORTANT and we're the only ones that we know of that have this feature.
  • Full, Illustrated Explanations. All charts and figures. Conveniently right there for you.
  • Many advanced features, including many study and learning modes modes

"The Mac versions are awesome! Thank you for releasing these. I took my Commercial Pilot Airplane (CAX) test last week after studying using the Mac app for a week and scored a 98!"

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I purchase the Mac™ versions?

AnswerClick on one of the links above. This will take you to the Apple Mac Appstore™ where you can purchase it securely direct from Apple.

Is one of the apps sufficient to prepare me for my FAA knowledge test?

AnswerOur GroundSchool FAA apps are complete systems, featuring the totality of questions, answers, and explanations as found in our desktop computer software that has helped thousands of people pass their tests. So yes, in theory, the app is 100% all that you need. However, in practice, while the apps are great and can be used exclusively, solving some problems on the limited space of some devices (such as on a relatively small iPhone screen) can be difficult, so many people purchase both an iPhone™/iPad™ version for use on the road (and for hard core 'question drills', if desired) and also the PC version for more contemplative home study). Again, in terms of content, however, it's all there in the iOS versions.

I want to use both the Mac and iPhone™ / iPad™ (or PC, or Android) software. Can I get a discount?

AnswerWe'd love to be able to offer this. Unfortunately, the Mac™ apps must be purchased via the Mac AppStore and Apple policy does not allow us to co-mingle promotions like this. It's Apple's app store and they set the rules to be a-la-carte pricing and we must abide by them. (In fact, when you order the app, we don't even know that you are one of our customers).

Are the Mac™ apps up to date?

AnswerHere's the really cool thing - the apps feature a built-in update mechanism. What this means is that with just a few clicks, our app will check the internet for updated data and download them to your device as necessary. This is integrated, fast, and free for those who have purchased the app. Usually we recommend that people update to the latest and greatest available as soon as they get the app. Sometimes, our servers may not be available or updates might not work for a short time - if this happens to you, don't panic. What we build into the downloads from the App Store is bound to be fairly recent.

Do I need to be online to use the apps?

AnswerNo, you don't! Once an app is installed on your device (after you purchase it from the AppStore), you don't need to be actively connect it to use it. This means, for example, that you can spend your time in a passenger seat of an automobile or aircraft studying even when you don't have an active internet connection if you happen to have your MacBook with you. Of course, you need to have an internet connection to your device to get updates from our servers from time to time, but as far as everyday use goes, you certainly do NOT have to be connected to the Internet.

When does my app purchase expire?

AnswerPursuant to the terms of the AppStore EULA, this is a LIFETIME PERSONAL LICENSE to use the app. In other words, it doesn't expire! It will be waiting for you when you need this. Compare this to our competitor whose more expensive product has very short expiration dates, forcing you to pay extortionate continuation fees if you want to keep studying before a test or review later on.

I saw some other FAA test prep apps ...

AnswerAt the time of this writing, our FAA knowledge test prep apps are FAR SUPERIOR to any of the other apps that we have seen. Why?
  • We offer free lifetime upgrades. They don't.
  • Ours is easier to use, with more study and learning modes.
  • Our material is maintained and kept up to date by a professional team of editors. We have seen an app or two which clearly uses some plagiarized version of some severely out of date FAA test bank.
  • Ours feature more detailed explanations than any other product, period.
  • Ours feature more illustrated explanations than any other product, period (in fact, as of this writing, none of our competitors even offer illustrated explanations).
  • Our questions are carefully organized by test, so you study only those questions that you will likely encounter on your actual test.
In short, our product is the most likely to help you score highly on your test with a relatively minimum study time and hassle.

How many questions are in the apps?

AnswerThe apps feature the same number of questions as the PC software and other FAA test prep titles. Our FAA preps feature question sets very representative of the overall FAA test banks and not just the small 'sample' banks that the FAA have put on their website and that form the basis of vastly inferior competitors' products.
