Pros:
Great information as to outlined requirments for initial training.

Product was recomended to me by a helicopter pilot from an air medical team. It was very interesting as to the Characteristics of flights and how much different it will be as compared to fixed wing flight, I'm up for the challenge.

This product I found to be useful towards basic comprehension of helicopter flight and other basic elements involved with it. I view this video more that the others that I have purchased. It is helpful. I am satisfied with. However, I was expecting more tutorial information for the price.
