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
