    Hi all-

    I've started thinking about a Private Pilot's license, and I'm about 99% sure I'm going to go through with it! I've already picked up my class-3 medical cert.

    What I was wondering, is if anyone here has experience with hillsboro-area instructors? I received email back from one that I've been dealing with at Twin Oaks (ive been told to avoid HIA) who seems nice enough, but I want to make sure I do well anyway.

    I've also been looking into trying to get ground-school and the test out of the way before I start. I've had a few recommendations, such as the Jeppessen series, which I found on torrent, so I wanted to try it out. However, after a few hours of watching the film, then taking a practice test, I found that the video was nearly useless! It barely covered any info on the test!

    I know they come with books, however there are a few free sources of some of the text online, so I was wondering if the kits are really worth it, and which one I should go with?

    Anyway, please share experiences with anything to do with private piloting.

    Thanks!
