Great Safe Landing Subject
I used to be nervous about doing x-wind landings. This course makes it easy for me to get the right mental picture of the cross wind and use just enough aileron and ruder cross control to compensate for the cross wind. Great flight demo in this video!

Short, Sweet & Too The Point
Well done example of how to handle crosswind landings, but this is more for students then certificated pilots who will already have shown proficiency with X-wind landings.

Another Perfect Video for King
I did my private pilot training back in the early 90's using back then the King VHS tapes for my FAA written in no time at all I passed my written just as easy as could be because John and Martha make learning easy as can be and still focus your training on safety. I would and do recommend the King courses to anyone looking into flight training. I know this for certain I am a better and safer pilot because of John and Martha King.

Though my instructor is great, watching it in action and fully explained really solidifies it in my mind better than he can explain with his hands or while actually flying. But I think he knows this because he pointed me in your direction.

Very helpful
Thanks for the free course. Just had my first crosswind takeoff and landing, with instructor "helping." This should help me do it myself next time, and with an East-West oriented 09-27 runway, I'm sure I'll get plenty of chances to put this to work.

Crosswind Plus
This was my first experience with any of the King courses. It was very well done with clear explanation of technique first, followed by very good video demonstrating the technique. That was then followed by another round of reinforcing explanation,coupled with some graphics. I was in the military for 11 years and this sort of instructional process was very effective in teaching. It works great and King is doing it very well. If this is what I can expect from King courses, I know I will be very satisfied with future courses that I plan to take (for example, their G1000 course).

Typical King School...!
I have not done a "King School" course for 20 years. I expected a simple approach to what may pilots consider to be complicated - ho, hum - They delivered! John and Martha have a methodical method that works for me. As a "Rusty Pilot", someone with 200hrs and have not not flown for 16 years I find their explanation of each procedure easy to understand, something I will take with me the next time I fly, and gives me confidence. Thank you King Schools!

While short, it's hard to argue with a free course that provides an excellent representation of the quality and style of King Schools training videos. I've been using King Schools since the 90's and always enjoy a refresher with John and Martha.
