I have more than paid for it in the 6 months or so that I have subscribed and the TakeOff app has been a nice perk.
Of course, it has been good for Sporty's too, since I am more likely to purchase here with "free" shipping if all else is equal.November 26, 2018Purchased

1 year agoI am returning to flight instructing after 10 years of flying fighters and 25 years of corporate flying. I quickly realized that the volume of information that a private pilot needs to learn has increased at least ten fold as a result of GPS, APPs, WX sites, etc. I also knew that in order to teach the basics of flying, I had to go back to the basics of private and instrument flying. I plowed through the books highlighting and underlining. I quickly learned that it would take me forever to read everything I needed to read and even with my extensive flying experience, hard to retain well enough to teach. After watching an older Sporty’s training video series on instrument flying and finding it extremely informative I decided that I needed to look into Sporty’s training videos. I ended up purchasing the Sporty’s Flight Crew Membership so I could review everything at a much lower price. So far the results have been outstanding.September 2, 2018Purchased
