Takeoffs and Landings Made Easy

Online single-subject course

Clear flight training hurdles or sharpen your skills.

With this course you'll change takeoffs and landings from a trial to a joy. You'll impress your passengers (and yourself) with flawless takeoffs and landings even in stiff crosswinds.
70 minutes

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." 
This Course Covers...
  • Normal Takeoffs
  • Flying the Approach & Landing
  • Tips for Good Landings
  • Takeoffs in a Crosswind
  • Landing in a Crosswind
