    Great Beginner Learning Tool
    Pros

    This is a great video to help learn the two most difficult phases of flight. I repeatidly watched it during my private pilot training and was able to grasp the techniques quicker in the cockpit, saving me money in additional flight training.

    Sporty's Takeoffs and Landing
    Pros

    I've had a Private since 1970 and Commercial/Inst since 1985 and then the layoff from private flying and found a great CFI and spent some dual and signed off my flight review. Felt safe to fly but landings were just OK. I found the video very useful especially since I fly (own 1/4) a C172E. I had been consisently high on final and the visuals help me make adjustments. My first passenger was my 28 y/o daughter and I had near perfect landings on a grass strip and my home airfield, KSFF. Worth the money and really a good review of all types of landings and how to correct mistakes.

    Cons

    Really none. A tad expensive and would be nice to be HD but all in all I made a good investment toward my flying.

    I am a student pilot and have been working on my landings as I prepare for my first solo. This video was very helpful by allowing me to sit back and observe versus getting instruction as I am actually flying the plane. Although the techniques used in the video are not the same as my CFI teaches, the video was quite helpful.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    I wanted to download it to a DVD so I could use it on my laptop, too, but have been unable to do it. This may be a result of my limited computer ability.

    Very helpful for troubleshooting my own landing flaws. Has improved my landing abilities, especially my crosswind landings. On my last solo cross country I landed in a 9kt crosswind and squeaked the tires right on the center line.

    Getting back into flying after 10 years has been a lot easier with this video. I saved rental fees,instructed time, and made the most of flight time while maintaining smooth takeoffs and landings.

    The hardest part of getting back into flying after 25 years was landings. I orders this product to help. I probably watched it 5 or 6 times. It helped to get visual clues on where the airplane should be in relation to the runway. The video and graphics were well done. I purchased and downloaded to my computer. It was very easy.

    Cons

    It was hard to control the playing of the file. A small construction.
