I have been using the Gleim software since 2003 when I first received my private pilot license for airplanes as a sophomore in high school. I have been able, with the help of the Gleim software and publications, to successfully add my instrument-airplane, commercial-airplane, multi-engine-airplane, certified flight instructor, instrument instructor, multi-engine instructor, aircraft dispatcher, and most recently my advanced ground instructor ratings. I am currently using Gleim to study for my instrument ground instructor, airframe and powerplant mechanic ratings, and airline transport pilot rating. I always look forward to using Gleim software due to its ease of use, ability to study exactly what areas of knowledge I wish to focus on, and also the ability to print off my own tests and exams. It would be a key tool for any flight instructor to use with their students and any aviation training organization to use alongside their curriculum. In my current training, the institution uses the competitors' study guides and I have chosen to use my own funds to purchase the Gleim study guides as they are assembled in a much more user friendly manner. I would highly recommend the Gleim products to anyone studying within the aviation industry.

I used a different company's practice tests for my general and airframe rating, but they only offered the test alone. This program offers study guides and audio/visual representations which I had to hunt for online when using the other ground school. Had I only know about Gleim before, I would have saved myself a great deal of headache. Thanks fellas.

We have been using Gleim AMT Test Prep on our school network since August, and love it. Your program allows our students to set up practice tests in a format that they will see when they actually test. Most of our students wait till they complete our program to take their tests, and then struggle with material from the first year. Your program gives them a way to study and track progress. We have noticed an improvement in our students test scores in the past few months. Thanks again for an affordable way to help our technicians succeed.
