If you think just ten hours is not enough consider this. There are two 
schools for pilot training. In the less expensive, less structured 
version the instructor evaluates the student to consider the student 
ready to solo. There is an allowable window of eight to sixteen hours 
of actual instructed flying/training where the instructor determines 
when or if ever the student is allowed to solo. If you can turn 
excellent students loose in an airplane with just eight hours flight 
training then ten hours might be a pretty good window into DreamCard. 
Anyway, what's to stop them from getting the thirty day demo version of 
Rev after that.
