great exposure
I finished the VFR Communications course prior to my first interaction with flight following through Indy Central, or flight to a controlled airspace. The course helped me be prepared for what I was about to encounter. Things went smoothly for me, so I believe that it was great preparation to help me out.

Info was perfect. Getting back to flying after 10 years off and this course brushed off the cobwebs in my brain. Confirmed my suspicions on when to talk to who easily and gave me something to refer back to when i needed it.

I have been away from aviation for a few years and am preparing to get back in. I have purchased several of the Sporty's video on-line courses and they are all excellent and make me feel like I am back in the air already!

Nice Review
I found the course to contain the majority of information I was looking for having been inactive for over 8 years. Between this course, reading the Pilots Handbook, and tuning in to all the Midway Airport (MDW) frequencies online. I think I'm about 90% of the way up to par. Starting my recurrent flight training soon. I would recommend.

Does the course have adequate listening practices for actual pilot training? I flew with my dad and tower responses are really rapid. A beginning pilot can become really confused in a hurry without lots of practice.
A shopper on Sep 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The course covers communications for the VFR pilot. The communication is at a normal rate.

During training the best practice is to inform the controller that you are a student and request that they slow down. With time and training you will be able to understand the communications.
Is there any limit to the number of times I can take this course after purchase?
CHRIS H on May 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, the course does not expire.
Is this course the same as the airspace section in the Learn To Fly Course or is this different material and therefore actually an "add-on" to the LTF course? If it IS part of the LTF course, could you guys also state on the pages of your other course offerings if they are add-on's or are also part of a bigger package? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: All of the courses are separate courses. The Airspace, IFR Communications and VfFR Communications course are more in depth and only address their specific subject. The Instrument Rating course is similar to the LTF course.
product a DVD or CD?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The course is available online, in an app or in DVD format.
