I did experience some sync issues with my Android device; so that is why I gave it 4 stars, but other than that that I would have given 5 stars. The course is excellent and I could not recommend it more highly. The course has been done with great excellence. I look forward when I can get to the next lesson.October 1, 2019Purchased
4 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery good online ground courseThe course covers a lot of material and has very good explanations. The practice quizzes are helpful as they reveal what you learned or failed to learn. I enjoy learning from this course.
I greatly appreciate that the subscription is for life. I plan on referring back to these videos for years to come. They have information that will be useful as I work toward future ratings as well.
I think the questions could be improved upon. There are some typing or wording errors that need to be fixed, and some of the questions are too simple.
If you are thinking of learning to fly, I would recommend getting a good online ground course and a good textbook/test prep book. Teach yourself what you need to pass the written before you get in a plane. It will save you time and money. It will also help you decide if flying is for you--before you spend time and money on a plane and instructor.

As a rusty pilot coming back, I recommend this as a refresher to get back into mastery of the head work.July 27, 2019Purchased

If you’re considering taking lessons with an instructor, go through this entire course first.
Show up with your medical certificate and your ground school complete, and all you have to do is learn to fly a plane ?????
The tests are challenging, but so is flying. It’s ALL stuff you need to know.
Also, just get the instrument rating package now. You’re gonna wanna fly through the clouds :)April 29, 2019Purchased

I would also recommend the FAA pubs that have been turned into text books and study them. You can get them free from FAA web site. I also used MZeroA and benefited from it for both instrument and private. I do NOT recommend King. Serious technology issues.I have the 2012 version of the Learn To Fly PPL course on DVD's. Is there a big difference between that course and the new course (2019) offered in this package?
