Overall solid course

I appreciated that more often than not this course focused on how to fly the airplane in instrument conditions and not so much on the theory of the regulations. It is definitely geared towards the ATP track and was missing some information for GA pilots (I.E. Different VOR checks that can be done and how to do them). Overall I learned a lot from this course and would recommend it to others.

Instrument Ground

I had just started my instrument training prior to the COVID 19 situation. I carefully looked at all options and selected FLY8MA. I am about 80% complete with course. I highly recommend course it is all I expected and than some. I am going to start flight school 6/15/20 and by that time I will be ready for FAA written exam. Absolutely great course, thanks!!!!
