If there's one thing we've learned about aviation education, it's that learning never stops – whether you are a student pilot or an ATP. Sporty's Air Facts® DVD Video Series addresses this fact with host Richard L. Collins, a renowned aviation journalist with thousands of hours of experience in a variety of general aviation aircraft. In each program, Collins presents the knowledge and ingenuity acquired through years of real-world flying and teaches you how to apply the same veteran skills and hard-learned techniques. 35 informative programs on 9 DVD's teach you to manage the risks of flight and increase the safety factor in whatever type flying you do. So keep learning! You'll end up a better, smoother, SAFER pilot regardless of the certificates you hold.

Outside the United States? - Sporty's DVDs have all DVD regions enabled and play on almost all DVD players (NTSC or PAL); consult your owner's manual for more information.

Pros:
Easy to watch series covers various issues of flight safety, efficiency or interest.
Cons:
Dated content, includes topics that are covered in various other of Sporty's presentations so you are paying twice for the same information. Maybe not as in depth as you might hope but still highly useful.

There are so many opportunities to improve this product but for it's price I don't think you can go wrong if you are either a fairly new pilot or a little rusty. I bought it for my daughter who is just starting lessons only to find that it was exactly the same as the old one I bought 15 years ago (there are a few areas where they edited in new or corrected information across the DVD's).

Pros:
A great collection of information on real world flying. Very good production quality and enough actual flying footage to keep the viewer engaged in the subject matter. Richard Collins casual narrative style is very accessible and suits the subject matter quite well. The content is suitable for new pilots wanting more than the content contained in the required FAA study material and is a great refresher for experienced pilots.

Pros:
Lots of different subject matter covered.
Cons:
My two big gripes with the set as a whole are:

- Different voices and hosts are needed. Richard Collins
is good and you should keep him, but add some variety.
Different aviation folks have different perspectives.

- The weather flying video that Richard Collins does is OK. There are lots of suggestions, but not a lot of explanation WHY. Weather phenomena needs to be better explained, including reasons WHY weather does what it does. For example, the coriolis force was never mentioned in the entire video, yet it controls the rotation of highs and lows.

Overall I'd give the videos a 6.5/10. They are a bit hit or miss. When they miss, it's because I was hoping for more substance to the material, more meat.
