Commercial pilots must complete a lengthy process in order to operate an aircraft:
In addition, pilots are required to complete recurrent training after receiving their initial type rating certification. In the United States, this recurrent training must be completed once a year. In Europe, it must be completed every six months. The initial and recurrent pilot training must cover aircraft systems as well as general subjects training.
Online pilot training, commonly referred to as eLearning or computer-based training (CBT), provides a versatile and effective way for pilots to maintain the certifications required to operate their aircraft. CBT programs deliver the course content through a digital device such as a computer, smartphone or tablet, allowing pilots and training managers to access the training materials from any location. This eliminates many of the costs and hassles associated with the ground school model, including:
While online pilot training offers many important benefits, it is often limited by the ability to maintain strong Internet connectivity. When connectivity issues occur, it can become challenging to access training materials and complete important coursework in a timely manner.

The Portable Classroom is essentially an app that allows the eLearning course materials to be accessed both online and offline. When you download the Portable Classroom app, you’ll be able to view all pilot training modules even when there is no Internet connection:
