Polish off your skills on the two most exhilarating aspects of flying—takeoffs and landings. This video goes in depth to explore the different types of takeoffs and landings and the factors that affect their outcome. In-flight footage puts you in the cockpit for a pilot’s eye view of the different techniques and methods for smooth, safe operation. More than just crosswind techniques, this program thoroughly covers slips, crabs, no-flap landings, emergencies, and recoveries from not-so-great approaches and bounces. The section on maximum performance takeoffs and landings will show you how to safely operate from soft or short fields. State-of-the-art 3D graphics give insight into performance characteristics and help to reinforce key topics. This video will help you maintain your takeoff and landing proficiency—great for students, instructors, and experienced pilots alike. Length approx. 50 minutes.

Pros:
This is a great video to help learn the two most difficult phases of flight. I repeatidly watched it during my private pilot training and was able to grasp the techniques quicker in the cockpit, saving me money in additional flight training.

Pros:
I've had a Private since 1970 and Commercial/Inst since 1985 and then the layoff from private flying and found a great CFI and spent some dual and signed off my flight review. Felt safe to fly but landings were just OK. I found the video very useful especially since I fly (own 1/4) a C172E. I had been consisently high on final and the visuals help me make adjustments. My first passenger was my 28 y/o daughter and I had near perfect landings on a grass strip and my home airfield, KSFF. Worth the money and really a good review of all types of landings and how to correct mistakes.
Cons:
Really none. A tad expensive and would be nice to be HD but all in all I made a good investment toward my flying.


Check you spelling of comments.

Pros:
I am a student pilot and have been working on my landings as I prepare for my first solo. This video was very helpful by allowing me to sit back and observe versus getting instruction as I am actually flying the plane. Although the techniques used in the video are not the same as my CFI teaches, the video was quite helpful.
Cons:
None that I can think of

Pros:
The hardest part of getting back into flying after 25 years was landings. I orders this product to help. I probably watched it 5 or 6 times. It helped to get visual clues on where the airplane should be in relation to the runway. The video and graphics were well done. I purchased and downloaded to my computer. It was very easy.
Cons:
It was hard to control the playing of the file. A small construction.
