Returning Pilot Finds Enjoymen
Going back to flying after a 25 year respite the King VFR Cross Country Course brought back the basics of preflight planning and the enjoyment of applying the plan to the actual flight. The course was easy to follow and yet had useful depth necessary for training.

This course integrates the thought process for planning a VFR cross-country flight and conducting an actual flight.

Enjoyable, funny, and honest
I have been familiar with John and Martha since the early days of Microsoft Flight Simulator. After years of growing up with hearing them talk during lessons that were pre-loaded into that software, I am finally working toward my Private Pilot License. This video provided me with an abundance of information that reiterates what I've learned from my flying school, but in a more comedic light that had me laughing at work. Thank you both.
