"Just dropping u a line to to let u know that I received my DVD today!! (fast ay??) :) It's GREAT!!!! Thanks very much! it's the nicest, most informative footage I could have expected. Im really keen on starting triking and this DVD was exactly what I needed! I've recently had an intro flight (3 weeks ago) and this DVD just brought it all right back to life!!
I'm really happy with my DVD and can't get enough of watching it! It's helping me to grasp concepts I was completely clueless on, such as flight patterns, terminology, the fundamentals of trike flight, safety and the structure of the flight training. Apart from the great educational and technical value of the footage, its absolutely fantastic to just be able to see trikes fly! Seeing the remaining selection of DVD's still available on your site, I am really looking forward to next one!
Thanks again and keep up the great work!" - Jorge, New Zealand
