The Solo Milestone

Talk to any pilot, and a major milestone in their flying is the first time they flew an airplane alone. For most pilots, soloing an airplane is more memorable than passing a checkride. A new DVD course from Sporty's is designed to be simple, without software to install or textbooks to study. It includes six hours of video on three DVDs that feature real-world in-flight footage with interactive review questions to mark a student's progress. Contact: www.sportys.com.
