I just finished my Instrument Airplane written exam. I used the ASA Prepware for several weeks preceding the exam. The ability to create specific study sessions, and then to take practice written exams was great. My last five practice exams ranged between 80% and 90%, and I passed the FAA exam with an 88%. I think the ASA Prepware package did an excellent job of getting me ready for the written exam and passing it with a good score on the first attempt. Thanks!

"Your Prepware course was really excellent and, as you can see from the results, effective. I would recommend this course to anyone and you may quote me on that."
Paul, Gloucester VA

"Even as I studied for the first hour after I installed the ASA Prepware on my home computer last night, I felt a sense of new found confidence, both in my ability to succeed on the FAA test and to be a safer and more competent Private Pilot. Thank you sincerely!"
Carole, Anchorage AK

"ASA training products are second to none! I've used the DVD ground school courses as my core training for both the Private Pilot and Instrument Pilot ratings. I passed both written FAA tests with very high scores, and a strong understanding of the subject matter. The knowledgeable ASA instructors and their Teaching techniques made the learning easy and fun. Thanks ASA!"
Hollis Dickerson - Private Pilot with Instrument Rating

"Today I achieved a dream of many years: I became a Private Pilot. There are a number of people I need to thank for their support, and that certainly includes Aviation Supplies and Academics, Inc. Your Private Pilot Prepware was excellent and was one of the key resources I used in preparing for my written and oral exams. I scored a 95 on my written, and my oral exam also went extremely well. I just wanted to thank you for a great product and great after-purchase support. Thanks, again, for helping me achieve a life goal."
Curtis M. Wall, McDonough, Georgia

"Thanks for making it convenient for me to get through the ground school at a pace that I could adjust to my work schedule."
   —Gary A. Sobek

"I used Prepware to prepare for my private helicopter knowledge test. The strategy that I used was to take a Prepware test, and then create a study session using the questions that I missed. I continued with this strategy until I could consistently score in the 90s on my practice tests. Once I achieved this, I scheduled and took the FAA exam. I was a bit anxious before starting the test, but once I saw the questions, I knew that I had been well served in using Prepware. I scored a 93% on the FAA test. My goal is to become a commercially rated, professional helicopter pilot. After this experience with Prepware, I will absolutely continue using it to prepare for all my future exams. Thanks!"

"I used the Private Pilot Prepware '08 to review for my written exam. As a college professor, I wouldn't allow myself to memorize any of the questions. I worked through all the questions several times to become familiar with the testing format and studied the material that I missed or didn't understand. Everything was by self-study and was reinforced by reading several instructional texts. I took the test yesterday and scored 100%. I currently only have 7 hours of lessons in my log book, but I wanted to get the written out of the way. This software allowed me to work through the material efficiently and effectively and was quite easy to use. Highly recommended!"
Timothy Steele, Ph.D., Des Moines, Iowa

"I enjoyed working with ASA's Prepware online, which is a great way to 'spool up' for the FAA Knowledge Exam after working through an IFR textbook to see and understand the whole picture."
Bill

"Excellent Course, and a great value. I fully prepared myself for the ATP written, and I also understood the material as well. The explanation of the wrong answers was thorough. I liked the fact that you can download the latest question database. Even your convenience of a built-in calculator was brilliant. And the ability to take sampled exams was a real plus. I would highly recommend this course. I am a new and true fan of ASA now!"
—Scott

"Amazing software. Helps me preparing for interview at LAN AIRLINES. Thank you for such a good product."
