    This app is definitely worth $29.99 for 50 minutes of video. Great for anybody who wants to learn about takeoffs and landings. I love this app.
  • Good information

    Takeoffs and Landings has a lot of good information and the video is awesome. I liked being able to use it on my iPhone iPad and stream it to my Apple TV. I believe it is right in Line with the King Schools version. I would have given this 5 stars if it was not so expensive. This video should have been more like $15, but with flying your always learning and will never hurt to see and hear a different perspective.

    Pricey for only 50 minutes of video, but definitely worth it. Rob teaches it so well and the different cockpit/aircraft views help you learn. Don't let the price discourage you, it's well worth it!
