Very Thorough!
The course covered more than enough information and the detail was important for former a "Rusty Pilot." I believe it is a great help in grasping the intricacies of GPS. It is helpful for Steam Gages and Glass.
Thanks for a great course.

Zero Value If you Already Paid 4 the Inst. Course
I had hoped that this would be a succinct review of the topics that would come up in an IPC or flight review. Instead it was simply a subset of the material found in the Instrument Course. I’m sorely disappointed that I’ve paid for this stuff twice (plus the VHS version that I bought years ago).

Too Basic to be of Real Value
I bought this because, as a CFII, I do many IPC's during the course of a year. I was looking for something I could recommend to my returning students. This course is fine for someone who does not possess that rating yet but way too basic for someone who has flown in the system and who has a good grasp of an instrument flying knowledge base. I had hoped for a better product from Sporty's.

Good refresher
I agree with several other reviewers that it could be more challenging. But it was a valuable refresher and reduced the ground time I would have spent with a CFII.

It was OK. Needed more video.
They indicate an "AREA FORECAST" still exists. They say it was an up to date group of video. Not so. Not enough depth and breadth to be a real IPC review. All that said I like it.

I've not yet received the actual book on it yet, but the I-Pad course is fine.
