Top Reviews

Informative, easy to use, and great quality of resources.

  • By Allison from Whiteland IN USA on Monday, October 08, 2018
  • Pros: Lots of information, easy to follow syllabus, and the lessons in the books compliment each other well.
  • Review: This product really met and exceeded my expectations. On other sites it told me that I wouldn?t get the kit for over a month, but with this site, I got it in less than 10 days. It was more affordable that any other site as well.

Great starter kit

  • By Loren from Newport News VA USA on Wednesday, January 17, 2018
  • Pros: This is definitely a complete kit for starting flight training.
  • Review: Great kit. It has everything I need to get started with my PPL training. High quality books and printed material. I expect to get a lot of use from this material. The E6-B flight computer is a much better quality than I expected.

A genuinely excellent product

  • By A Customer from New Jesey on Monday, October 23, 2017
  • Pros: Comprehensive and easly readable
  • Review: My original CFI asked that I purchase the Jeppesen GFD Private Pilot (training) kit, and I did so. I have no regrets whatsoever. As other reviewers have commented, the material is well organized, and well written. Much of the material is taken from the FAA publication The Pilot's Handbook, and from the FAA publication The Airplane Flying Handbook. However, the advantage of the Jeppesen kit is that all of the individual resources are linked to each other, and the Jeppesen kit, in total, is an excellent foundation for understanding and mastering both the knowledge aspects and the practical aspects of the Private Pilot examination process. Using this kit, I passed the written knowledge test without difficulty, as well as the oral portion of the Checkride. It should go without saying, however, that there is no substitute for cockpit time, and this material certainly cannot substitute for practical experience.

Great for new pilots!

  • By A Customer from Albuquerque NM USA on Tuesday, October 18, 2016
  • Pros: Great layout
  • Review: I love the format and the flow of the whole course. I like that it is divided into many books and not just one overwhelming one. I took off a star because I would rather pay a little more for the books and get the videos too than pay a lot for the books and then need to pay a lot again for the videos.

Good Product

  • By A Customer from Hubbard OH USA on Thursday, March 03, 2016
  • Pros: Comprehensive material
  • Review: Great product to help a beginner learn to fly.

Good kit for Private Pilot

  • By N M from Fremont CA USA on Tuesday, July 14, 2015
  • Pros: Good kit, exhaustive material.
  • Review: The kit comes with everything you need. The E6B computer and plotter are good enough to solve the purpose. If you are following Part 61, you may not need the Stage Exams but, it's good to give those exams and get it reviewed by your CFI. I follow the syllabus as provided in the kit. The GFD (Guided Flight Discovery) book is very good. The book helps in your fundamentals and if you follow up with AIM and Pilot Handbook for Aeronautical Knowledge, you will be equipped to score good in your knowledge test.

I would buy this product again, if it had the flight computer with it.

  • By Ed Dellarco from Brookfield OH USA on Thursday, January 08, 2015
  • Pros:
  • Review: The kit contained all the items necessary to get started on acquirine the private pilot certificate. However it did not contain an electronic E6B flight computer. Otherwise I would rate it a 5.

  • By Allison from Whiteland IN USA on Monday, October 08, 2018
  • Pros: Lots of information, easy to follow syllabus, and the lessons in the books compliment each other well.

  • Review: This product really met and exceeded my expectations. On other sites it told me that I wouldn?t get the kit for over a month, but with this site, I got it in less than 10 days. It was more affordable that any other site as well.

4 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Wednesday, May 16, 2018

    Q: Is this up-to-date? The flight school sad they just got updated kits? How often are they updated?

    A: Our kits will always have the most current editions available. 

  • Monday, April 09, 2018

    Q: I've bought one of your kits through a third party. I believe they marked up the price. I'm wondering does your FAR Part 141 kit have some kind of identification, like an ISBN I can compare the kits so I can purchase the cheaper of the two?

    A: The part number on this kit is  10011887-011. It contains all the items listed in the product description.

  • Wednesday, January 24, 2018

    Q: Hello! What book edition does this bundle has? Your picture has old ones.

    A: The materials contained in this kit are the most up to date materials available, however Jeppesen does not update their books every year. If you want 2015 materials take a look at the ASA Private Pilot Kit - Part 141

  • Sunday, March 22, 2009

    Q: This is all new to me. What is the difference between 61 and 141?

    A: Flight Schools are either certified under Part 61, Part 141, or both.  Part 61 and Part 141 certified flight schools offer the same basic training and require the same FAA exams. The major difference is the training environment. Flight schools certified under Part 61 offer a flexible (less structured) training program in which their training syllabus is not subject to FAA approval.  Flight schools certified under Part 141 provide a structured training program with a standardized training syllabus approved by the FAA.

    As far as the kit goes, the textbook and the foundation are the same for the 61 and 141.  With the 141 kit You just get some extras such as the Private Pilot Syllabus, Stage Exam Set, Record Folder that wouldn't really be needed in a Part 61 program.  You also get the metal flight computer (E6B) as opposed to the cardboard version.

    In general, flight schools offering a Part 61 program are much more popular.
