I purchased your “Instrument Written Preparation software Last year.  I was very helpful and as I had written prior was instrumental in my passing my written with confidence.  Since that time I also passed my instrument check ride.
I’m writing to request a possible favor.  My old computer crashed and I had to replace it.  My problem is I’m attempting to maintain some of my favorite programs which yours is one.    Unfortunately my new computer does not have a cd/dvd drive.  When I purchased yur program I didn’t download from the internet but instead received the disk.  I would love to keep your program because I go back to it as a refresher at times.  My request would be if you would allow me to download the same program from the internet?”

I have studied my ground school with several different sources. While they all had valuable information, I think your program really stands out because you have some very good analogies when you explain the various concepts. I also appreciate how you cut out a lot of the nonsense and help me to know what I need to pass the written. Overall, great job with teaching the info. I want to also emphasize that your teaching of navigation . . . especially the use of the VOR and how to read it and where you are in relation to it, was far superior than any of the other source I learned that from. A BIG thank you for that! Read More…
