    It's been nearly 20 years since I've flown. I have recently had reason to look into recurrency and this product along with the BFR DVD and ASA BFR review book helped me pass the orals first time. Lots of information and it comes fast so multiple viewings helped absorb at least enough to satisfy the instructor.

    Great refresher! Can not been the info contained in here. I would recommend this to any pilot who intends to maintain an instrument rating. It is good for just popping it in from time to time to stay fresh.

    Really not a good product along with all of Dick Collins Air Facts. If you want to hear Dick Collin's say "spend some time with manuals or read this or that" then these are for you. Not very informative and in my opinion a waste of money. The King videos are 100 times better.

    Excellent review of Instrument Flying from A to Z in as succinct a manner as possible. The DVD is well organized and easy to follow. This would make a good review before the instrument checkride to help the candidate understand what will be expected of him/her as an instrument rated pilot.

    Cons

    None.

    General Comments

    Great product that would be useful to any instrument rated pilot.
