Visualize what is written/read
This course has been very helpful to convert information that I read into a vision then experience.
Every people have different learning pattern but eyes are the main data receiver for our brain, also the explanation is clear and easy to understand.
Highly highly recommended for who started from zero experience when started taking a pilot program as well as international students.

Excellent. Very Simple
As mentioned in the headline, I find the courses simple and easy to understand. Partly because I'm a visual learner and every lesson is a video but also because the way they word their lessons is very efficient and friendly-- not overdone with big and unnecessary words that just add confusion like other programs

Not worth the money
I got the most expensive private pilot package so I got this course in my bundle. This course was helpful and prepared me for my night flight tonight. The only reason I took off 2 stars is the price. This price is 3x more than it should be. I would mark this as $10 or $15, maybe $20 at most. But not $49.00. Most of the information given is how to use your eyes in the dark and not come to a disastrous end to a flight. They recommend to fly the same at night as you do in the day, just with more caution.

John you did a wonderful explanation of night flying ---- I have many hours logged flying at night, but believe me you helped me as I return to flying including flying at night.I am very happy with all the courses I am going through including getting my instrument rating and completing my bi-annual with an instructor.  Minimum of 1 hour flying and 1 hour ground so I can get beck to doing what I love doing, and that's flying.
