Dec 21 - Happy Holidays! Hello everybody! Just a quick note to wish all of you and your families a joyous and peaceful holiday season.
We again thank those of you who have joined the Dauntless extended family by becoming our users and customers this year, and also again thank those of you who have been with us for longer. This has been an exciting year for us - we've accomplished much (though, as these things tend to go, never as much as we would have liked) and are excited about the year that awaits us after we return from our holiday hiatus (though fear not: our helpdesk and support services are still working more or less as usual over the holidays as our team has a rolling schedule of monitoring it remotely).
We especially thank those of you who have directed others to our website and products over the years--we hope to repay your trust by continuous improvement and upgrade of our products. Those of you who have been following us for a while know that we don't engage in flashy advertising - we spend our time making quality, reasonably priced stuff.
By the way - if you've put off studying for your written test or computerizing your pilot logbook, now might be a good time to start!
Happy holidays to all!
Dec 18 - Cold Outside? Sunny results!
I love this software! My score was 98 on the real test. Wanting to expedite my progress I just kept testing on GroundSchool until I got at least 95 in four
or five consecutive tries and then took the test and it was a breeze. Thanks for the best software!

Hmm - a great score on the knowledge test AND you get to be out in Florida while the rest of us shiver in other parts of the country? Ah, life is good! Congratulations DH on a superb score and for taking the time to write to us. The rest of us will just have to take comfort in the fact that aircraft perform better when the air is colder (since the air is more dense), that is, if we can get the engines started.
I just wanted to compliment you on a great product at a reasonable price. I had been using a free test prep for the Instrument written, but I just couldn't break out of the 70s. I purchased this product and in three days, I went from the 70s to getting 85% - 95% on my practice exams. I got an 88 on the real thing. What I like about this product is how it explains why an answer is wrong, reinforcing your understanding of the material...and at a fair price. Thank you for producing this series.

Sometimes our users write us things that sound like ad copy. We didn't write this ourselves, really!
We'd like to congratulate RD while noting that he brings up an interesting point. Those "free" websites are only "free" if your time is worth nothing. Most were put up in a weekend by somebody who inappropriately copied a bunch of questions from our software or a book. They are NOT regularly updated (the two "major" ones that we know of have questions dating back over 8 years!), are usually missing MANY questions, and certainly don't have the professionally written explanations and other content that we do. Additionally, they're clunky and time consuming to use. Really - if you don't like our software, fine, buy a book or something, but it seems like an unwise economy to try to rely on such outdated sites.
Dec 16 - A Great Result from an anonymous user! We received a bit of anonymous feedback from a user today, though it's a wonder he/she remained so modest with auch a wonderful result as this! We're not sure whether this person used the PC, Mac, iPhone/iPad, or Android version of our FAA knowledge test prep. All the same, we congratulate this person on a job superbly done and glad we could play a small part in their success!
I took the Private Pilot written and received a 98% (missed one question). This program was the only thing I truly used to study with, although I did scan other sources to insure that there was not missing material in this program-there wasn't. Of all the other sources I checked out, this was by far the most user friendly in its setup.
I studied the test by studying each section individually until I could consistently get 100% in it or miss one or two. Basically, go through them and let it tell me what I missed right after answering and then once I finished all the questions, I would go back over the ones I missed one more time. Then repeat.
I honestly have no clue how many hours I've spent on this program but I know that it took going through each section "test" 5-10 times depending on its difficulty before I had mastered the section.
I breezed through the actual test, it took me 10-15 minutes tops, and that was only because I forced myself to slow down so as not to make careless errors.
Your testing format was extremely helpful in the results for my test. I'm now in the process of studying for my airframe written test using your software. I see nothing to be improved in your material.
So, I had been studying for my FOI a few weeks, mainly from the Aviation Instructor's Handbook. I was bogged down in the stale reading and making no progress till I was sitting waiting for the mechanic to finish work on a rental plane when an older gentlemen struck up discussion and when asked about my goals he told me about your programs. I loaded them onto my IPAD and went to work. I worked the sections individually and then, stacked them as I completed the next. Using al of the handy tools from flash card mode to the decks. The greatest advantage was not just memorizing the answers but, the reference backed up each question ( I love the commentary on the crazy FAA questions). This says that someone took time and really put together a good product with research beyond the books. In two weeks time, studying solely but reference to Dauntless I was smoking through the 438 question bank in about 15 minutes with 99% accuracy. I walked into the test center today and there was another student waiting to take the FOI. He had the appointment before me but, was hesitant to pull the trigger on his $150 exam. I took his time slot commenting confidently, " trust me, I won't be long". In 9 minutes, YES, nine, I smoked the 50 question exam with %100. The guy behind me not so lucky. True story! Great program!
You folks really rock. Your software AND your company blow everythng else right out of the water.
We've been honored to have praise from users before, but this one makes us really blush. Thank you very much for the kind words, and we will continue to work hard to live up to all of our users' lofty expectations.
Hello Dauntless and thank you for such a great e-logbook! I love Safelog and recommend it every chance I get.
Thank you for the kind words. We're glad that Safelog's flying high with you. For the rest of you - whether you're a professional pilot or if you fly for fun, if you haven't yet experienced the flexibility, power, and time savings of computerizing your logbook, why not try our Safelog Electronic Pilot Logbook which has been consistently ranked the best out there? The holiday season is a great time to catch up on things like this.
Thanks for your support, you're great and I love the software, really...it has made my logging so simple. Keep up the great work!
We're really honored to have a great user base that often is thoughtful enough to give us some kind words from time to time. It is to our great detriment that too often we let such good words go unpublished (we're too busy working, I guess). OSO, a long-time Safelog user went over the top in his praise of us today. Thanks a lot! We look forward to further living up to and indeed exceeding your expectations.
