Member Helicopter Check Ride Success


Hi Kenny,

I wanted to tell you how much your training has helped me. I am farming and only had about a month in the dead part of winter to do my flight training so I decided to brave it out and do the 3 week course. I knew I would have to be well prepared and I have used your/our groundschool to get me prepped. Like my instructor told you I got signed of for my ground portion after a short review of all my work and I aced my written test as well as my oral part of my checkride yesterday. I can honestly say, all the way through it I was thinking to myself “thank you Kenny” everytime I got to and through something that I have had difficulties with in the past. I would definitely recommend your ground school to any one who plans on doing their training.

Regards Johan Van der Walt.

From Johans Instructor

Hey Kenny just wanted to give a big thanks for all your efforts. I recently had a student come to my school and wanted to do our 3 week private pilot coarse. I sat down with him the first day for ground school and was appalled by his knowledge. The fourth or fifth day he took his written exam and the total days we actually flew was only two weeks. His name is Johan Van Der Walt and he informed me that he did your online class. The only thing I had to cover with him was the flight Planning portion. Today he took his private pilot check ride and passed with flying colors and I wanted to thank you for your program because he was the first person I have ever signed off and I couldn’t have felt more comfortable clicking “sign here” on his iacra form.

Just wanted to inform you of his progress and once again thank you for your efforts.
Best regards,

Hello Mr. Kenny, I passed my check ride yesterday February 20th 2015, the examiner was impressed how I knew my stuff oral and practical they way I knew the process for the maneuvers, and when we landed he told me that my oral and flight was 1 of the best private check rides of his career, I told him that I been studying with you and I did 2 simulated check ride[I showed him the video of me here in the website], he was very happy, and that’s all thanks to you and my pilot Pablo, thanks for this online school, keep up the good work, I’m going forward for my commercial.



“I got my license at age 70? I aced the oral, had a little trouble on holding altitude precisely on  what he wanted but I guess it was good enough, DE said hover auto was smoothest he had ever had, but I did not tell him in a bell all you have to do is roll throttle off ,and wait , never would of been able to do this with out your school,  thanks”

Hello. My name is Jason and I’m coming to you from high atop the city in Atlanta, Georgia. I just wanted to talk to you today about Helicopter Online Ground School. I got the course about two months ago and I started working my way through it. And then, of course, the last week before the Check-Ride I kind of was freaking out and, so, I did a lot of cramming with it. And I was really concerned about the oral part of my Check-Ride. I felt like I could do the maneuvers and things, but was really concerned about the oral. Kenny was great. I was able to text him a lot. He was able to answer my questions. I could call him. You could go on Skype. He actually worked through some problems with me for a couple of hours one day on Skype.

The course is very comprehensive. It goes over everything you’re going to need to know. In fact, it helped me quite a bit with my written. And on my oral, I passed it with flying colors. In fact, I was in the oral with a guy who — he was going for his commercial and I felt like I could answer probably 95% of the questions that he was being asked. So, it’s going to completely prepare you to get your private pilot’s license. So, I highly recommend it. And I’m real excited because I just got mine yesterday. Here it is right here, my Temporary Airman’s Certificate. And, so, I hope to see you on the inside of the member’s area and I hope to see you in the skies.

What Client’s Say

"I got the MP3 CD’s you sent and have been listening to them on my way to helicopter training. I KNOW that this whole ground school package will be constantly improving and growing just as it already has. You’ve been a non-stop dynamo on this project. There are plenty of good pilots around, but there is NOTONE on planet Earth that is as passionate about creating a place for future heli-wannabe’s than you. Keep at it – you’ve already achieved success, but this early stuff will seem like a “Model T” as you work toward building a “HUM VEE”.  My instructor has shared many of his stories, and it turns out that he was such a failure at learning to fly a heli that he actually thought he wouldn’t be able to do it. Now he’s a 1000+ hour guy and I call him the Helicopter Whisperer. That to say sharing your failures like you do and knowing that you can persevere through them is very encouraging to me.  Keep those rotors turning!"

Congratulations Captain Keller on the R-22 POH project!... I have been studying the first three modules of the Online Ground School and they have VERY, VERY GOOD information for the Checkride! Regards!"

Kenny,  I like the items you have done and the material is great. Dvd's along with the mp3 audio will fill a big void in helicopter training. I will give you feedback on the dvd's! "

Good afternoon Kenny, Great learning tool, an after thirty years flying, ground school is difficult to get to, so I wanted you to know they are huge help, getting ready for my add-on check ride!"

Hi kenny! The only problem I have had is they will not work in my dvd player but that's because my dvd player is a dinosaur, i use my computer its no problem for me. Also on module 1&2 about an 1hour 10 mins in the audio gets way ahead of video. Never the less they are very good, learning a lot, and i'm pleased with them money well spent."

Hi Kenny, Thanks for the info. Online is fine. I have wanted to fly for a very long time and have looked up lots of schools and different books and youtube clips. I really appreciate your site, it's exactly what I have been looking for. It still may be a while before I go to school, but your site is perfect for getting me started!"

Hello Kenny, Thanks So much for making a place for people like me so we can go and get more info outside the class room. I just joined yesterday so I have not been able to go through all the information yet and can’t wait for the DVD’s to come in. So far I have made it though module 4 today and there is more information in there than what I can remember in one day I love the fact that we can take all this with us and have access it anywhere, This is probably the best thing for me because I have to travel over two and a half hours to be able to fly and do ground school so this well allow me to work on the ground school myself so I well be able to maximize my time when I get to go to Fly. Thanks for all the work you have done Keep It coming we can use anything that you can help us with. Thanks from Tennessee, Brian "
