Exciting live-action video puts you in the cockpit, at the controls, giving you the sight picture you need for approaches and flares that will have your wheels softly kissing the ground.
 
You learn how to see at a glance whether you're too high, too low or off to one side and you'll gain the tools you need to put yourself right back on the rail. You'll even learn how to recover gracefully from the rare botched flare or touchdown. When you're done you'll be one of the countless KING students who say, "I learned to land by watching your course."

Good tips
Presents some tips to better conceptualize control for crosswind takeoffs and landings, and to control for best flare.  I'm eager to go out and practice given the grasp this has given.  Highly recommended for all.

Simple yet profound
Just like learning to walk, you have to crawl first. King schools makes that very easy. I picked up several tips that made my next flight so much easier.

Should have watched sooner.
I have probably done three dozen takeoff and landings. I wish I would have been directed to this video series only on, since most of this has been learned from the instructor in the plane.

Easy to follow
The videos are short enough to keep you engaged and yet long enough to give you the most useful information.
