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. Closed Captioning not functional on PAL DVD players.

Attention International Students!

Sporty’s VFR Communications DVD has printed subtitles or captions (sometimes called under-titles). These captions are very useful for students whose first language is not English, as many students more effectively assimilate new material when it’s presented in both verbal and written form.

Get this DVD if your learning at a uncontrolled AP

Recommended

I currently am doing my studies at a non-towered AP. So, the radio calls are simple and direct. As I venture out to more AP's, my knowledge of communications grows each and every time. I ordered this DVD to expand my understand and knowledge of communications at controlled AP's and it certainly helped a lot. Even if you all ready have your PPL, and haven't been on the radio for a while, this will help refresh your memories and get you sharp for the next time you need to taxi/takeoff/land at a AP with a CT. Video was interesting and well filmed, as were all the other DVD's I have from Sporty's. Great product.

"Live" presentation of this subject works for me.

Recommended

I prefer a (this) DVD compared to "on line" courses. (How about Sporty's considering free shipping? Dream on Ned!)

Pros:
Great video. Eases the fear factor concerning communicating in the air. Very informative, inclusive, and concise. Very easy to understand. As with anything related to aircraft, you'll need to watch this (and any instructional video)several times in order to absorb it all. A fantastic video.

Pros:
I love this product due to the fact that I can study at my leisure. This is a great way to catch on things in which I may have missed or to brushen up on information I am still not clear about. Thanks
Cons:
Not enough people are interested such as I am. There are 400 million people in the United States and still there are a lot of individuals scare of flight. When they say knowledge is power it is so. The more information I grasp the better pilot I will be.
