The program was perfect for me. Informative and concise slides that were accompanied by clear audio. Whenever I was stuck or confused by a topic/question I would write it down in the discussion board and within a few hours, someone would reach out to me with a detailed explanation. Big thanks to Jason and Dean for being so responsive. They are truly there to help you whenever you’re feeling lost. I have now developed a strong foundation to move forward in my IFR training with confidence. Thanks again. Cheston

Purchasing the INRAT exam prep course was the best thing I ever did. I love how everything was explained and broken down in such great detail that helped me understand everything I needed to know to pass the exam. One of my weak areas was VOR & ADF intercepts and dean did an amazing job explaining and it just clicked for me, great job guys for creating this product. Ever since I used it I recommended it to my friends aswell to give them the same opportunity I had to pass my exam by using this resource.

The INRAT Exam Prep course is an amazing study tool. It covers every topic you will need to know for the exam and points out specific points that you need to know. The content provides narrated slides and videos that allow you to watch through the content quickly, or pause and take notes at your own pace, which is very convenient. For me personally, it had been many months since my INRAT ground school and this course got me right back up to speed in a short period of time. Jason and Dean will also answer any questions you have personally, and they actually care about your success. Highly recommend this course, you won't be disappointed!

For anyone considering doing the INRAT exam prep, if its the ground school seminar and or the online ground school course, I’d highly recommend no other option... I’ve always had a hard time studying and found this course simple amazing. The information provided is easy to understand and follows a very good structure, making the unknown known and hard concepts made easy.. at the end of each subject they provided exams, which follows what you would expect to see on the exam. During the progression of this course whenever I had topics I did not understand, and or needed help, they were always quick to answer and made time to actually explain. I passed the INRAT and owe credit to these gentleman whom took the time to make such a wonderful course and to made time for a fellow aviator. I wish you blue skies and the best in your studying, and INRAT exam!

Amazing course! Passed my INRAT exam within 1 month of starting the course. Easy to navigate and everything is well explained with over 5 practice exams. You can easily schedule 1 on 1 time with an instructor and/or get a response to any question(s) within just a day. This course doesn’t just prepare you for the INRAT exam but also provides you with a great knowledge of Instrument Flight Rules for your flight training. Would definitely recommend this course to any pilot looking to get their Instrument Rating.

I have been wanting to hold an IFR Rating for over 30 years but I always had an excuse for myself not to proceed or even start it. I knew it would be challenging and I had many people tell me how difficult the INRAT exam was which was also discouraging. For years I asked myself...could I even do it? Shortly after I finally made the commitment to take my IFR rating, I came across INRAT Exam Prep and the timing was perfect. I found the course to be well organized, and all the information was available to me to pass the INRAT exam. I had a lot of questions as I went through the course. The answers were provided to me in a timely and professional manner. There were no dumb questions... At no time did I feel intimidated and the online course made the process much easier for me and my lifestyle. I would highly recommend INRAT Exam Prep to anyone who is considering an IFR Rating or having the feeling of "INRAT intimidation" as I had for so many years. I even took it a step further and did my flight training with Dean as well which was further added-value. The INRAT exam was certainly not easy, but Dean made my experience much more comfortable and I passed the exam just yesterday! I appreciate all you have done for me. Thank you Dean and Jason! Stephen

I have enjoyed doing this course from day one. It was a great review for the INRAT exam. The quizzes and the sample INRAT examination are designed to be able to work around the questions which make it very easy during the actual exam. My zoom session with Dean and Jason was very helpful. They really explained some concepts that was quite challenging to me very well. I am so glad that I took this course right before my exam!
