    As a new person entering the field of aviation to obtain a private pilots license I couldn't be happier. This information provided has allowed me to become more familiar with the things that matter!!

    I can tell when someone has passion for what they do. Jon's passion for aviation has touched me to the point where it has caused me to not only strive to be a better pilot but a better mentor. Simplicity is the key and I thank God I came across the free course.

    Coming back to flying after 20 yrs away. I was going to do a classroom ground school but that was a 16 week program. After taking your course a lot of the information started to come back to me quickly. Your course is fantastic for anyone starting to fly or coming back to it after an absence. You cover things very well and your enthusiasm for Aviation is very inspiring. Thank you so much. Welldone

    Hi Jon, it has taken me some time to complete my private because life has gotten in the way of time spent on training. However, I wanted you to know that I've learned more from watching your videos than from many of my flight instructors over the past few years. Very helpful and insightful. Since I teach English, I notice the typos. Still giving you 5 stars due to your excellent instruction!

    I am currently halfway through the course and I am enjoying the course. The videos are awesome. The way the information is broken down so I can understand how the different concepts work togeather is helping me understand the big picture.

    This is an excellent resource for learning and studying for the written exam. Does anyone know if I will get a certificate of completion that I can take to the testing center, so that they will let me take the exam?

    Thanks!
