    Pros

    Great product,very informative and perfect for someone who has been out of the cockpit for a few years. With this my Bi Annual will be complete in no time.

    Pros

    I've been away from flying for 20+ years. This is a great DVD set. Sound quality is excellent, instructor is well paced and easy to listen to. Information is delivered in an intuitive sequence, and the level of info is detailed and relevant. This product is a great side-by-side product for pilots who are getting back into the swing with a flight instructor. I was nervous about airspace changes since the 90's and re-learning weather briefings, and I didn't want to consume all of my instructor time with those questions -- I'd rather focus on the fundamentals of flight. The airspace and weather info is complex, but the format and presentation make it easy to watch the critical sections on several occasions to make sure you feel comfortable with the material. The ancillary items, like the kneepad and the flight planning materials, are great for a person who didn't retain those things from previous flight experience. I also appreciated being able to follow through the communications, taxi, takeoff, pattern and approach sequences at controlled and uncontrolled airports, in sequence.

    Cons

    I would like to see more in the way of test-your-knowledge sections in the DVDs. Exams are available on the FAA Wings website for each course, but it would be nice to be able to take them on the DVD without the spectre of the FAA looking over your shoulder as you check each box (correctly or incorrectly).

    General Comments

    This is a pretty comprehensive set of DVDs and manuals for a VFR pilot looking to regain skills or improve proficiency. The description of content matched what was delivered. I have found this package to be very useful in maximizing my in-flight instructional experiences as I run through, in real time, the subjects that were covered on the DVDs.

    Package not for everyone
    Pros

    Some discount for package; Information, Books & DVDs were credible and watchable, easy enough to understand.

    Cons

    Knee board too large for me personally, didn't find all of the included items useful.

    General Comments

    I should have scrutinized this a little more before buying. After a 13 year layoff from flying I figured it would be a worthwhile purchase. But ultimately, I found the Comm Cards and Flight Plan forms, not useful for my personal taste. The knee board was far too bulky for my use in a small GA aircraft. Otherwise, package was as expected and overall good value for what you get. I just maybe didn't need everything that came with it.

    Cons

    Could use an outline or a suggested review sequence. The addition of the Private-Study Buddy App or something like it would be great.

    VFR Refresher Kit
    Pros

    The VFR Tri-Fold Knee board was ok. Maneuvers guide was a good review.

    Cons

    DVD training was to general in concept.

    General Comments

    Best part of the package was the FAR/AIM and Aviation Weather Services book. But you could purchase them separately for a fraction of the cost.

    I haven't flown for 20 years and expected more from the DVDs. They covered the topics to fast and to generally. Maps, Weather and Airspace, in my opinion, was a lot of information thrown out there with very little training in it.

    FAR/AIM is for 2011 yet the sporty's site states the 2012 FAR/AIM is in stock. I guess I was expecting the most current as it is splashed all over thier home page.

    Excellent value for the price. DVDs professionally mastered with current and relevant information. Enough material to keep this old pilot reading for a while.

    Cons

    None.

    General Comments

    Take your time and read and view all of the material. Your safety and that of the rest of us up here are counting on it. Don't presume that just because there's a certificate in your pocket that a "quick refresher" is all you need. I'm reading each book, cover-to-cover, and watching each DVD as though I've never seen this stuff before. Fly Safe.

    Not having flown for about 20 years and taking it up again this year I wanted something to catch me up on whatever I might have forgotten and what has changed in flying. I have not been through the whole course yet because of time constraints, what I have used so far is very useful. Glad I got it.
