Hello. I’m outside Chicago and for my 40th this year, I’m checking a couple of items off my ‘list’ - one of them being running a half and the other learning to fly. I’ve started the learning to fly because honestly reading materials is much more exciting than going on a 3 or 5 mile run when it’s 30. there’s lots to read it seems. I have a good friend that is a pilot (Private) and I have a flight school but am now going through materials. There’s copious amounts of info out there. I have the ASA student flight manual and Rod Machado’s book. But there’s a lot from the FAA and the materials look decent. How did everyone aggregate what to read?
