Interesting Class
While I'm not likely to be flying anywhere near mach 1 anytime soon, the concepts explained in this class can help pilots at all levels. This gives a better a more thorough understanding of the mechanics of lift on a wing.

Wonderful Video! No Quiz?
The High Speed Flight course is a great introduction to the elements of flight as you approach the speed of sound. My only issue was that there was no quiz at the end to drive the points covered to home. The good news is that you can always go back and review the course again.
