    This is a great product. The video content was excellent. It was presented in an easy to understand fashion. The FAA Written Knowledge Practice Test questions were invaluable! After completing the requirements in Sporty's Learn To Fly Course, Sporty's sent me my logbook endorsement to take the FAA Written Knowledge Test within a few hours. Thanks to this course I easily passed my FAA Written Knowledge Test on the first try! I highly recommend this course, as the price is very reasonable when compared to going to hours and hours of ground school.

    Great Product
    Pros

    This product was very easy to use. The videos made it seem like I was in a classroom environment and the material was presented in a manner that I could understand it. The Test Prep Section also help me prepare for my written.

    Cons

    The graphics such as sections were difficult to use in the test prep section. It got to a point that I didn't use them. I would recommend getting you hands on a written test graphics to use along with this product.

    General Comments

    Overall, I was very satisfied with this product. I scored a 90 on my written test prep and I passed my check ride. This product a had me well prepare along with my instructor. I am going to check out the instrument training course too.

    Pros

    Great videos. Love the 'study buddy'. Many ways to learn.

    Cons

    Laid out to be used in conjunction with flight lessons. If you are not using an instructor that uses this particular product, then the layout and structure is a bit confusing.

    General Comments

    I wanted a product that would get me past the written test. A home study product and then go and start actual flight lessons. I'm not completely satisfied. I am NOT saying this is not a great product. The videos are professional and very informative. I love the 'Air Facts' video that help me understand not only what I'm learning but how it applies (will apply) to my real life flying. I also love the 'study buddy' and the multiple ways to use it to prepare for the written. I am saying that I have had to find other resources (like the FAA pilots handbook and the 2014 AIM) to really feel confidant I am ready for the written FAA exam. Yes I would recommend this product, but be ready to find other resources to really feel comfortable for the written.

    Pros

    This product is easy to use. I felt like I was in a classroom watching training videos.

    Cons

    ( No Cons Listed From Reviewer )

    General Comments

    I will say that the video quality (although still very good) is less, making the download times faster than on the online version of this course where you had to stream it. It worked so much better for me since I have slower internet.

    Test material-print version of Charts not provided
    Pros

    Good presentation, lots of information. Recommend if you have spare $199 to watch well presented videos to complement the FAA study books.

    Cons

    Trying to take the test is impossible without having the printed charts to plot course, measure course angles. Unfortunately....charts are not mailed when the product is ordered.

    General Comments

    Good videos to watch if you already have a printed version of the workbook as sold by Gleim, ASA and others. I think a little overpriced when others are available for $99.00
