Thoroughly enjoyable & useful
I found the course very practical for a rusty pilot like me. I particularly liked the practical perspectives and techniques the Kings brought to the topics from their experiences flying and teaching. I feel much more confident now and am eager to proceed to get current again!

NEVER FORGET THE OLD TOOLS
This very earthy teaching method was most rewarding. I believe it is especially important to be able to use the handheld navigation like the Plotter and Flight Computer, flight plans, etc. We are becoming very reliant on new technologies that are very sophisticated. Yet it is a step back in time but well worth the ride. Does anyone do dead recking anymore. I sure hope so.

Well done and easy to follow
The VFR cross-country course is easy to understand and follow. I wish there was some information about navigating by GPS, which is increasingly becoming standard. But it is still like all the other courses of John and Martha - really good, and fun to watch.

Good course, feels a bit old
This course was a great review prior to my Private Pilot Checkride. Lots of good tips along the way. Some of the content could use an update, such as discussion of navigation systems and weather briefings, but overall a nice complement to the other King courses I have taken.

Great real world
It would be nice to update the video. Although I love Martha and John, I am certain that someone there would like to take a cross country with a GoPro. If you can accompany the video with maps that can be printed i could follow along. Invite the viewer to pause the video so we can have time to reference the maps and use the E6-B to make calculations. That way i can get real world experience on my computer. Thank you for the great videos.

I've taken several VFR cross-country flights over the years, but I felt as though a good review would be useful. It was, and I learned some great tips such as the use of dead reckoning in case I get lost. Great course, thanks!

Course needs to be refreshed
While the material in the course is still relevant, it is obvious it is 20+ years old. New technology has been introduced since this course was released and should be included in the course. I find it hard to find paper sectional charts. Most everything is electronic these days including flight planning and this should be discussed.

Thank for taking me to Sedona
Hi John & Martha - You folks are awesome. Not only I enjoyed your 1st class teaching; but you took me a student pilot with you to Sedona, AZ all the way. Your inputs and advice along the way are great and I would be watching this video over and over again until I feel comfortable for long cross country flights like this one. Thank you again for your teaching and investments in many students all over the world.
