Note: This free mini-course is taken from the King Schools course - Jet Transition. Martha and John King say it best with their description of the full course - "This course covers all the things we wish we had been told in advance when we started flying jets. We would have learned much faster, and avoided making a lot of embarrassing mistakes under very stressful circumstances." —John & Martha King

The Kings make it fun to learn
I really love how America's top flight instructors, John and Martha  reminds us of our smart Aunt and Uncle that took the time explain how everything works. Really enjoyed how to break it down into bite size pieces for our consumption.  Thanks for the great lesson.  Ben Tankard
