Find a better source for learning helicopters.
This course is nice if your trying to get a basic understanding of how a helicopter works. A little pricey for the minimum amount of information your getting. I wish this course was taught like in the airplane private pilot sportys learn to fly course as far as in depth in certain areas. Helicopters are unique and require a vast amount of study material. Was not happy with the limited information that this course provided. I was happy with this course because it gave me a basic understanding of helicopters. After reading the helicopter flying handbook I realized this video course barley scratched the surface of what you need to know. Not worth the price. I’m a fan of sportys but they dropped the ball on this one.

Good, interesting course
The instructor is easy to understand, interesting, and makes it fun. The footage and narration are great. I was left wanting more information on flying techniques and considerations. Maybe the author can write additional courses.

What there was of it was good, but for $70 I expected more. I based my purchase on their multi engine cd, which was excellent. Many areas were just glossed over. This course could be so much more and should be for the money.

Excellent Introduction to Helicopter Flight
I have been a private pilot since 1986, SEL, but wanted to see if I could handle MORE studying to advance to a Rotary add-on. I viewed unlimited YouTube helicopter training videos, and now I have just completed this "So You Want To Fly Helicopters" course. Very educational, easy to use, and I can do it at my own pace being that I have a very busy working schedule. Yes, this course is cleverly designed, and an excellent learning tool.
