Had no trouble passing the FAA written once going through the course and receiving the auto sign-off after passing two practice tests. I still have a lot to learn before taking my instrument check ride, but that's in the nature of the beast (lots to learn, remember, and integrate into practical application).December 28, 2017Purchased
10 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat to use as a study guideGood overall organization. Plenty of good real-world videos of actual IMC and approaches. Pretty decent references cited throughout the videos. I used it as a study guide to help break up the monotony of slogging through the FAA manuals.
The short quizzes at the end of each short video clip are helpful for review. Be sure to utilize the test prep and flight resources tabs in addition to the video training. The music at the beginning of the video clips is super cheesy, but that's easy enough to skip. Good overall value, especially considering that in the old days you'd be paying $50/hr for someone to explain it to you in person.December 19, 2017Purchased

5 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent home study course! I got an 87% on the written in <2 weeks from starting!Excellent course!
The videos do a pretty good job of explaining the topics!
The learning mode and test prep questions are top notch and match the actual test about 75% of the time.
I would have liked to see a little better or more in depth discussion on holding pattern entries.
I just took the Written today and passed with a 87% after taking this course and studying for < 2 weeks.
Definitely recommend over doing with a flight school!July 20, 2017Purchased

Browse 21 questions Browse 21 questions and 28 answershow long is online access?BEST ANSWER: There is no expiration date - you get free updates delivered automatically.I want to have the availability to use this while I travel commercially, where I don't always have an internet connection. If I get the Ipad/Iphone app choice, can I access it also on my Mac Computer offline if I download it?BEST ANSWER: You don't even have to go go the Mac if you don't want to. On the Ipad version it gives you the option of streaming the video, or downloading it. If you're going on a trip, just download 5 or 10 episodes or however many you think you can watch in the time span you'll be gone. It just takes up your data on the iPad, so when you're done or return home, delete them off of your device.Can I play the videos on Android smartphones?BEST ANSWER: Does this mean no APP for Android to use while no internet connection available ?I'm looking at buying an iPad- but I'm not sure how much memory space I need for Sporty's and other aviation apps, etc. can you give me an idea what kind of space Sporty's requires?
Thank youBEST ANSWER: Agree with the other answer. On my iPhone, which is the same as the iPad, under settings it tells me the Instrument course only takes up 73.3MB. You stream the videos. There is an option to download videos, if you are going out of wifi or for whatever reason want to have access to the video where you cannot otherwise stream it.
