Great products for students! I am finishing up my private pilot and as a student (now learner) I wish I had purchased earlier in my flying endeavors. A great value for both books to help with the knowledge test, oral exam and check ride.

Its a must for Flight Training!
Official guides of the US Dept. of transportation. Very detailed in some areas, others areas not so. I also recommend "Rod Machado's: Private Pilot Handbook" its even better detailed; but the instructor told me I needed the official guide! So I have all three books!

More essential than fuel.
Very happy with both books. Much larger than remembered them, but that’s a good thing with these old eyes.
For a newbie pilot these are essential. For all others, they are a great refresher and brush-up.

What is the difference between these Sporty’s reprints and the FAA/ASA versions of the books? Obviously the price is lower for the Sporty’s versions, but what else is different? Cheaper covers? Not bound? Thinner paper? If I compared the 2 versions side-by-side, what would be the most obvious differences?

BEST ANSWER: We print locally. This is the reason for the reduced cost. The paper that we use is a little thicker.
If purchased as a hard copy could one download these as PDFs as well?
