My husband learned to fly by watching the dvd's, reading the books, magazines and listening to the tapes. He also took one on one with instructors. He has no need of this material anymore because he got his license but then he died, not in a plane by the way. I also have a whole set of tapes for instrument instruction, which my husband never quite got to. Considering we spent over $600 for all of this, $100 is a pretty good deal. Also have the headset but that would be additional.
