Finally a way to learn and really use VORs!

Teach yourself to read and interpret VORs at a glance and radically improve your ability to use VORs in the air!  A must for any private, commercial, or instrument pilot seeking VOR proficiency!

VORs-At-A-Glance Flash Cards are designed to show any pilot how to look at a VOR receiver and read it at a glance. There's no time in the cockpit to spend slowly analyzing the CDI needle and To/From indicator! You need to be able to read course, radial, and location information with just a quick glance at the VOR receiver!

VORs-At-A-Glance Flash Cards will teach you:

  • The difference between VOR courses and VOR radials
  • What the VOR does not show you
  • The best way to think about the course deviation indicator
  • Inbound vs. outbound course indications
  • How to instantly know your position relative to the VOR
  • Tricks for reading interception courses right off the VOR

After years of teaching student pilots about VORs, Dan Dyer -- the CFI who created these -- finally realized that teaching them to interpret the VOR wasn't enough. Pilots need to be able to look at a VOR and read the information off immediately. It's just like when you first learned how to read. There is a big difference between the ability to sound the words out and the ability to look at a work and just read it. Pilots need to be able to "read" the VOR!

Flash cards are the perfect solution to this problem. On the front of each quiz card is a question and a VOR display. On the back of the card is the answer to the question, an explanation of the answer, a map-view showing the locations of the aircraft and the VOR, and visual guidance on how to see the answer more quickly on the VOR. Flash cards are the perfect visual solution for a visual problem!

Here's what's included in Dyer's VORs-At-A-Glance flash cards:

  • Over 160 quiz cards in increasing levels of difficulty
  • In-depth guidance on how to answer each type of question
  • Tips and tricks that teach you new, faster ways to read and interpret VORs
  • 14 card sections ranging from basic VOR concepts to in-flight navigation challenges
  • Real-world questions with VOR displays to read and interpret
  • All answers are fully-diagrammed on the back to improve your spatial sense and your situational awareness
  • Practice one section at a time until you can read VORs at a glance!

    D. Pfeiffer, CFI.

Old and true method, great information.

  • By Tim from Duluth GA USA on Wednesday, February 22, 2017
  • Pros: Great information, simple, effective.
  • Review: If you're struggling with understanding the VOR indicator and what it means to you, like being able to glance at it and know you are to the SW without any real thiought then this is for you. Great explanations and a good group of study questions.

Great product...

  • By Waqas from Federal Way WA USA on Tuesday, February 26, 2013
  • Pros: Easy to understand, simple.
  • Review: This is a GREAT product totally worth the money. Wish the would also have similar training cards for an HSI and just the standard OBS even though the conceptsare the same.

    Overall an excellent product and highly recommend to anyone trying to understand flying VORs, intercepts etc

Great VOR training aid!

  • By Erik from Hagerstown MD USA on Tuesday, August 02, 2011
  • Pros: Gradually builds in complexity, good summary at begining of each section.
  • Review: Met my expectations, wish they were available as an App. and then would be easier to carry around.

  • By Charlie from fort bridger WY USA on Tuesday, March 08, 2011
  • Pros:
  • Review: It was helpful just not as much "meat " as i thought would be there but helpful

Really Helps

  • By A Customer from Anacortes WA USA on Sunday, January 09, 2011
  • Pros:
  • Review: Very helpful and useful information when you are in the learning stages.

Very helpful, but kind of expensive

  • By Daniel from Roscoe IL USA on Thursday, August 13, 2009
  • Pros: Easy to learn, repetitive to drive home points
  • Review: I found the cards to be very helpful in learning to quickly recognize and calculate your position relative to the VOR, and to easily calculate changes. Multiple cards covering different aspects helped drive information home, and I felt much more comfortable reading a VOR after using the cars. Still, the price is pretty high for some flash cards... Even so, they were and are helpful.

Took me from totally confused to finally getting it

  • By Marcus from Galveston, TX on Tuesday, September 30, 2008
  • Pros: Steps you through in levels of difficulty.
  • Review: Was really struggling to understand VORs, and my instructor pointed me to these flash cards. Really satisfied with them. The first five sections are entirely intro, and walked me through even what a radial means versus what a course means. Took me awhile to get past the basics, but then made it through the rest. Feel pretty good about VORs now. Wish it came with a box, but I found an index card box at Office Depot for $5 that fits.

VOR training cards

  • By Daryl from Chatsworth CA USA on Monday, September 08, 2008
  • Pros: direct, to the point explanations, good practice
  • Review: It overall is a very good product; however their explanations could go into a little more depth. I already had a good understanding of the subject, but these are an excellent training aid and something I'll definitely use as a CFII.

Buy this flash card deck!

  • By Bay Area VFR Pilot from San Francisco, CA on Thursday, April 17, 2008
  • Pros: Effective, comprehensive, challenging, convenient, fun
  • Review: Dyer's VORs-At-A-Glance is an indispensable training aid for student and experienced pilots alike. A great (and fun!) way to sharpen VOR skills using a completely realistic and effective simulation without incurring Hobbs and CFI costs. The deck is well-organized in section tabs and has real-life situations with easy to read diagrams. The "tips and tricks" are especially helpful. VORs-At-A-Glance has sharpened my ability to read and interpret VOR's as advertised - at a glance! I keep it on my desk and use it frequently – it’s easy to run through just a few cards if short on time and I learn something new each time I do. Dyer's flash cards have improved my situational awareness and have made me a safer and more competent VFR pilot. Well worth the money!
