Only able to use fast forward. Which takes a much longer time to find a spot I want to pause on or review.January 31, 2018Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesOutstanding customer service!I had accidentally ordered the DVD version instead of the Online version. Without hesitation, Sporty's let me return the DVD box (unopened, of course!) and I was sent the online course. I love it. I am now able to not only study at home, but also have the lessons with me on my iPad to consult with my instructor on areas where I have questions.
The bag itself is so bloody awesome. I quickly ditched my old flight bag for this and also ordered a knee-board from the same brand :) The books, documentation and fuel sump are definitely going to be VERY handy.
Sporty's is my go-to spot for everything I need for aviation. This was my biggest purchase yet and I have no regrets!!! Wow, I sound like an ad bot, but to be honest it is how I feel.November 29, 2017Purchased

over 2 years agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent and thorough!I’ve been pouring over all the resources provided in the Learn to Fly Course Kit. I am impressed with the quality of the DVD lessons and the sheer volume of information contained in the course. I would like to see Matrix that links subject matter in the videos two chapters and pages in the books where that information can be found. I can find the information in the books by using the index and table of contents but it would be nice if it was all tied together with a printed matrix or outline of some kind. Overall I am extremely pleased with the course.October 15, 2017Purchased
