Sporty's and Rob Reider did their usual good job with this product. The explanations and the video/animations are first-rate. My only disappointment is that there wasn't more content. I was hoping for more in-depth information.

What does purchase get me? A certain number of viewings? A certain time period for viewing? A lifetime of viewing? Besides instant access, why would I want to pay $10 more for this than for the DVD?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2016
Will this give me the ability to take the glider written exam?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but there is no specific test prep. It is targeted at an airplane pilot transitioning to gliders, more than an initial glider written test.
