    Pros

    These videos were great for review of ground school and it was nice to take the quizzes for reviews on each section. I also liked the multiple explanations and the use of animations for complicated concepts or simple concepts which are hard to explain.

    Cons

    Although they had a few these videos did not have as many animated explanations as I would have liked, it also didn't go into as much detail on things like airspace regulations or VFR flight plans.

    General Comments

    The product was three disks of three different volumes, it moved along logically and was a great study tool, I am going to invest in the next volumes when I am ready for them.

    Helps tie everything together for me.

    Cons

    One DVD was badly scratched and wouldn't play properly. I took it to a local video store to get the scratches removed. I should have returned but it was the first disc and I had started lessons so I wanted to watch as soon as possible.

    General Comments

    I use to prepare for my next lesson and also to review after my lesson.

    The videos are produced very well and are interesting and enjoyable to watch.

    These are great videos and I will be watching some of the chapters multiple times. Especially the weather. These have been a great help to me in my training. They visually clarify alot things that are in my books and study guides. I would recommend them to everyone.

    Great Starter
    Pros

    Great Traning Information!

    Cons

    For whatever the reason, When I play the DVD's on any DVD or Blue-ray player, the Subtitles are always there, and will not go away. I've tried everything to get rid of them, but they are still always there!

    General Comments

    For me this is not a big deal, because when I play these DVD's through a computer, The subtitles are no longer a problem!!
    Might be some sort of compatibility issue between different DVD Players, but anyway despite that these DVD's are GREAT!!

    Pros

    Customer service was awesome. The fit order was lost after it was shipped. They tried to track it down. They eventually shipped me a new order.

    Cons

    The first order was damaged. The disc case was damaged and the checklist binding was all bent. The only way to use the checklist was to remove the binding.

    General Comments

    Very good product after I received the replacements. I will be returning the damaged items.
