Rod’s New eLearning Format Makes It Fun

Rod’s Flight Review program includes two new interactive eLearning courses that prepare you for a flight review or help you knock off the rust.

1. “Federal Aviation Regulations for Pilots”
2. “Understanding Airspace”

Rod’s Interactive eLearning courses offer a fun, new and exciting way to learn. Each course is narrated and accompanied by interesting graphics, animations, videos and educational interactions. In addition, each section within a course is accompanied by questions to help test your knowledge and reinforce important concepts. Of course, if questions aren’t your thing, then simply skip them and continue with the course.

The FAA Regulations You Really Should Know!

Regulations are typically dry and boring, but Rod has found a way to make them fun and interesting.

With Rod’s “Federal Aviation Regulations for Pilots” interactive eLearning course, you’ll learn (or review) all the regulations you need to prepare for your flight review, pass your private pilot knowledge exam, or just refresh your knowledge on the rules and regulations that govern our flying.

This course contains many hard-to-find FAA legal interpretations on certain “frequently debated and often confusing” aspects of the FARs. You’ll be an FAR expert in no time!

Rod explains these regulations in an easy-to-understand (and remember) way:

  • Aircraft:
  • Category
  • Class
  • Make & Model
  • Type Rating
  • Airworthiness
  • Conditions of Flight:
  • VFR

The Airspace System Simplified (Finally)

Rod’s “Understanding Airspace” explains why the airspace system exists the way it does. This interactive eLearning course is a fun-filled refresher and flight review prep that helps all pilots better understand our present airspace system and a pilot’s obligations when operating within it.

Have you ever wondered why…

Class E begins at either 700′ or 1,200′ AGL?
SVFR minimums are 1 mile and clear of clouds?
VFR cloud clearance is higher above than below the clouds?

Rod provides easy-to-remember explanations of the entire airspace system:
