Learning from accident chains

We kept hearing a common theme among pilots: the NTSB website isn't the friendliest to use. Changing pages and navigating through the site can be a hassle, especially on mobile.

More importantly, we were surprised by a flight instructor's observation who, after more than 40 years of flying, was amazed at how many pilots of various experience levels aren't aware of the value of NTSB reports.

Flight Chain App makes your flying life easier by giving you accident information that's quicker to digest, so you have more time to devote to flying. More convenient and less frustrating. For both you and your iOS device.
