John and Martha have again produced a winning general aviation tutorial.  All of the basics to great takeoffs and landings are illustrated here.  Take the hour or so to refresh yourself with these teachings.  You'll be glad you did.

I give this a grade of 95%.
Overall a very helpful course for the student pilot. Well worth the time and the cost of purchase to be able to view it. I would have graded it at 100% if you talked about the visual clues as to ‘when’ to begin the landing round out.
