August 2008 NOTAMS
Plane & Pilot’s Guide TO AVIATION’S most current PROMOTIONAL DEALS
More than 14 hours of video! It doesn’t matter whether you’re a student pilot or an ATP—in aviation, the learning process never ends. Sporty’s Air Facts DVD series is hosted by Richard L. Collins, a renowned aviation journalist with thousands of hours of experience in a variety of general aviation aircraft. In each program, Collins presents the knowledge and ingenuity acquired through years of real-world flying, teaching you how to apply the same veteran skills and hard-learned techniques. Thirty-three informative programs on nine DVDs instruct you on managing flight risks and increasing the safety factor in whatever type of flying you do. Order through Sporty’s and pay just $110 (cut from $225) for the whole series.
