15 year Private Pilot
I’ve had a Private Certificate for 15 years but have not flown for about 6 years.  I’m using this course to “knock the rust off” then get my Instrument Rating.  It’s been a great way to get my mind thinking like a pilot again.

Excellent Refresher
I'm a rusty pilot.  It's been 20 years since I've been pilot in command.  Picking it back up this year.  This video was an excellent refresher.  This is the first series of many, so I'll let you know more as I progress.
