Very nice product
by Mark from Big Bend WI USA 

Pros: HD Quality, ability to pause
Cons: Wouldn't work on my home computer - probably due to system limitations
Review: Like the fact you can pause the program on your computer and take notes as you go. Works flawlessly on my laptop.

Light on information
by Justin from NY USA 

Cons: Needs more information on the topics
Review: This product is light on information compared to what is in the PHONAK put out by the FAA. Good accessory but plan on spending plenty of time in the actual book too.

Review: It is a great product in the first half, but they didn't stick with the high quality instruction in the last half. ASA is on the right track, but needs to go back and redo. Make version 2 great.

I am very satisfied with this DVD set.
by Brian from Saltville VA USA 

Pros: Great learning tool.
Review: I liked that this set covered the basics, although I wish there had been more.   I also wish there had been some instruction on using a flight computer.   In all, I am happy with my purchase and you will be hearing from me again.

by Marshall from Nottingham MD USA 
Pros: I liked the specialists they interviewed.
Review: I liked it. I am a pilot, but have not flown in years so I needed a review. This worked great. I would like them to do a cross country video from filing a flight plan to taxing and parking your plane.

Nicely Done Video
by LeRoy Moore from Mount Vernon KY USA 

Pros: Professionally Done.
Cons: You need to already know aviation "talk". Some acronyms you might not know.
Review: If you are having problems understanding written materials this DVD set will help you along immensely. If you are a student or already a pilot and need refresher materials this should do it. This also comes with software to install on your computer to help with your written exam. The software will update so you are not studying with outdated info.

Well worth the price.
by Kelly from Lake Park GA USA 

Pros: Well organized; excellent graphics; Prepware (FAA exam sample questions)
Cons: Not "emphasize" important points; Heavy with acronyms; Wrong graphics in one place
Review: In my opinion, ASA's Private Pilot Virtual Test Prep is a very good DVD-based ground school study program. It parallels and supplements Bob Gardner's book The Complete Private Pilot (emphasis on supplements). Although the program is presented as a Stand Alone ground school, there is no substitute for the one-on-one instruction and interaction (Q & A and discussions) with a ground school instructor; still this program does a very good job. All of the instructors are accomplished pilots, ratings-wise, and are knowledgeable about the topics they are presenting, and their accompanying graphics were outstanding.

The DVD study program consists of 11 Chapters among 4 DVDs, and a 5th DVD combining the interviews contained in the 11 Chapter presentations. Also included is a CD-ROM software disc (Prepware) of FAA Exam sample questions, with explanations for correct answers and why the incorrect alternatives were wrong.

The DVD study program does, however, have some cons. Among all the instructors presenting the various chapters, none of them seemed to emphasize or stress points that were especially important (not everything they said was of equal importance). Also, one of the instructors hand gestures were a bit distracting, and should have been addressed during rehearsals.

A few of the guests/authorities being interviewed threw acronyms around like they were conversing with their high-time pilot friends. At times they seemed to overlook that their audience would be relatively unknowledgeable student pilots (aspiring Private Pilots); and some of those acronyms might not necessarily take the first time they were presented. That may not be the way those being interviewed meant to appear, but that is the way they came across to this customer/reviewer. Barry Schiff managed to speak at the student pilot level quite well.

The most glaring faux pas occurred in Chapter 9 (Enroute Flight) in which the instructor is calculating and reporting one set of values (wind correction angle, magnetic heading, etc.) and the graphics being displayed are showing an entirely different set of computational results. I assume ASA had several examples of the topic under discussion and the instructor was presenting one of those examples and the values being displayed were for an entirely different example. That error should have been caught in editing before the finished product was ever made available to the public. That may or may not be corrected for later DVD versions.

Overall, I would recommend this DVD program (with Gardner's book) to any Private Pilot student seeking an at-home Private Pilot ground school study program.

by Joseph from Hurricane UT USA 
Review: Overall this is a good product. Sometimes it moves too fast on assumptions that the listener knows what is being said ( i.e. used term like IMC without first explaining). I find the best combination is to watch the video and then follow-up with the manual, which has a more complete information.

I would definitely buy this product again
by Little Pip from Mosheim TN USA 

Pros: Great for visual learners.
Cons: Cannot think of one.
Review: I am loving these DVDs. If you are like me and learn better "seeing" than "reading," then you will like these videos. The layout of the program is great and never is there a point where you have to sit and watch someone who is boring or monotonous. If I ever lost my copy, I would buy it again.

Basic Groundschool on your Schedule
by A Customer from Dubuque IA USA 

Pros: In depth, Interesting
Cons: Expert interviews can be long, The Navigation section only showed how to use one type of plotter.
Review: I got this to help me pass my FAA written exam. The way the dvd segments were broken down was good. The learning curb and pace was also good. The in depth visual aides helped tremendously. The only downside is that I found the prep software a little outdated, and when it came to the navigation chapter it only illustrated how to use a certain type of plotter (the one with the spinning wheel in it).

It's like having a ground instructor at home whenever you have the time to study
by Michael from Sandy Springs GA USA 

Pros: Just as educational as the actual ground school class I took but at a less expensive cost
Cons: The inability to ask questions. Also, some of the review questions after each topic were rather elementary and could have been a little more challenging
Review: This was a really good overview of all the necessary topics required for the private pilot certifcicate and you also have the luxury of watching whatever subject multiple times if needed.

I paid $395 for a ground school instructor class before taking flying lessons and this video was (I believe $120 +/-) so it is an economic way of learning the material. The drawback to videos is that you don't have the opportunity to ask questions.

The weather segment was an excellent section since it was done by a pilot/weatherman.

by Donald from Alvin, TX 
Review: I listened to this while eating dinner or other things. It is a good set to put you to sleep at night. Information was helpful, but more importantly the practice test program really helped me study for the exam. I would like it better if the program was sold seperate and the price was less. But if your going to "Home School" it, the DVD's might be more helpful.

Good information and helpful
by Frank from Old Bethpage NY USA 

Pros: Good source of information for biennial review
Cons: not enough to pass knowledge test
Review: [This review refers to a previous edition.]
I am not sure if this product will help the student pilot to pass her/his knowledge test, however it is a cheap and good source of help for the pilot studying for her/his biennial review.

Pros: you can review the material multiple times
Cons: no opportunity for more explanation
Review: [This review refers to a previous edition.]
the material is a great resource to an actual classroom presentation. I was surprised to find that the first thing on the list to do is to read chapter one of a book NOT included in this package.

Review: [This review refers to a previous edition.]
My experience with the test prep has been given me the education that I was hoping to recieve. There is no damaged material in the package that would dissatisfy me as a customer. I will be buying more products from "my pilot store".
