Rusty Pilot

Been away from flying for a while? Like to start flying again? I can help with my "Rusty Pilot Collection." These products will help you return to the cockpit with a review of regulations, airspace, operating techniques and more. At an absolute minimum, you'll need Rod Machado's Private Pilot Handbook for a review. The Rod Machado's How to Fly an Airplane Handbook will also help refresh all the basic and advanced flight principles you've probably forgotten since your last flight. Of course, the Interactive Airspace course is perfect if you feel you only need a review of airspace and prefer to learn interactively. So, have fun, laugh and learn with these products.
