Confusing at first but complete at last

  • By Cardinal from Cleveland TN USA on Tuesday, November 13, 2007
  • Pros: Very informative and structured
  • Cons: Sensory Overload at first
  • Review: This product was both overwhelming and enlightening. When the product was received I immediately opened the package and began to look at what I had bought. I quickly became overwhelmed until my instructor sat down with me and explained the program. My instructor is now using the structure of this program for me and other students that are starting to fly. The information is very informative but the book is a little thick and slow to start. P.S. I soloed Yesterday and what a rush (Lost the shirt tail) [Editor note: Congratulations!]

Awesome package with great value

  • By Shawn from MIAMI FL USA on Sunday, January 20, 2008
  • Pros: Awesome Kit everything included to start school and more
  • Cons: Sometimes I wish I had a video to see things in a different percpective
  • Review: The information is clear and concise, until you get to the airspace area and class airspace and then you want something more visual although you can find that on the internet. The weather section is next and it looks like a handful of information. I would recommend this to anyone interested in their private pilot but sometimes wonder if their cd selection was not a better choice. Well we will see.

A must for any student in a Part 141 program

  • By Fred from Warwick RI USA on Wednesday, September 30, 2009
  • Pros: Everything you need.
  • Cons: Knowledge test manual needs better layout
  • Review: Everything you need for your 141 PPL course. Textbook well written and easy to understand. Topics that will appear on the knowledge test are highlighted in each chapter. Price of the kit was cheaper than what my flight school was asking. The knowledge test manual that is aligned to the textbook needs to have the graphical references (sectionals, weather charts, airport information, etc) on the same or opposite page as the question(s) they relate to. Unfortunately, you must keep flipping back to the reference page to answer questions on subsequent pages

Great for new pilots!

  • By A Customer from Albuquerque NM USA on Tuesday, October 18, 2016
  • Pros: Great layout
  • Cons:
  • 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.

A genuinely excellent product

  • By A Customer from New Jesey on Monday, October 23, 2017
  • Pros: Comprehensive and easly readable
  • Cons: none
  • 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.

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:
  • Cons: No electronic E6B flight computer in the kit.
  • 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.
