Good instrument review
There was a lot of good information pertaining to instrument flying. I've not taken my instrument proficiency check yet, so I can't say how relevant and complete the information was presented or how helpful it was in the IPC.

Pros: Excellent review of Instrument Flying from A to Z in as succinct a manner as possible. The DVD is well organized and easy to follow. This would make a good review before the instrument checkride to help the candidate understand what will be expected of him/her as an instrument rated pilot. Cons: None. Great product that would be useful to any instrument rated pilot.

Pros: None Cons: Expensive, No real information given. Really not a good product along with all of Dick Collins Air Facts. If you want to hear Dick Collin's say "spend some time with manuals or read this or that" then these are for you. Not very informative and in my opinion a waste of money. The King videos are 100 times better.

Pros: Rob Reider is an excellent voice over / talking head. Occasionally another voice would come on, and I'd almost doze off. Excellent coverage of needed material. Cons: Ummmm.... Took me awhile to figure out the menu. Bit tricky navigating to specific chapters. Great product.

Pros: It's been nearly 20 years since I've flown. I have recently had reason to look into recurrency and this product along with the BFR DVD and ASA BFR review book helped me pass the orals first time. Lots of information and it comes fast so multiple viewings helped absorb at least enough to satisfy the instructor.
