Other than that, It's quite easy to use. Would be nice to have the explanations in text as well, not only sending back to the video (and referencing the right FAA textbook chapter). Other than that it, very well made.May 14, 2018Purchased

Its on your schedule and you can repeat modules. And the conceptual illustrations help to make the material easy to understand.Only thing I wished different were the transitions from the Quiz to the next module. After the quiz is complete (and passed) it stays in the current module instead of advancing.May 13, 2018Purchased

4 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesNeeds MoreIt was very informational and it is very useful for a pilot that knows stuff but for the beginner pilot it needs more. It needs to show you how to do performance charts and give you more practice. When you take the practice written exam on it you will know the videos did not give you a lot of information about the test. But for the most part it is very helpful.January 30, 2018
- Question and Answer
Browse 54 questions Browse 54 questions and 61 answers1)Will this course enable me to pass the oral portion of the FAA test as well?
2)How does it help with the flight portion of the test? Does it take you thru the steps of flying the aircraft?
Thanks in advance for your answer.BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is total preparation - the written/knowledge test for sure, but also the oral portion and the checkride. While there's a written test prep tool to practice all the questions, the videos are focused on really teaching the material so you understand it, not just memorize it. You'll also get a preview of the checkride in the last part of the videos. This is a complete course.Can I also use the iPhone/iPad app if I only buy the online version? Or do I have to buy both the online and the iOS version in order to watch the videos on both my PC and my iPhone?BEST ANSWER: With the new 2018 courses, you get access to the online version, the iOS app, and the Apple TV app - all for the same price and all with automatic sync. Just buy once and use it anywhere.Is this ground school acceptable?BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what "acceptable" is in this context, so I'll address a couple of them:
1)Do the FAA testing centers accept the Sporty's Certificate of Completion? Yes.
2)Is the training sufficient to pass the test? Yes. I just finished with the video training and practiced the questions until I mastered them. I scored a 98% on the FAA Test (missed one question).
3)Are the videos any good? Absolutely. They add a lot of context to the questions that you can't get by just reading the questions and memorizing the answers.
4)Are the test questions identical to those on the test? Not exactly. Some are, some are different. For example, no practice question addresses the test question that asks about the Mode required on the transponder when squawking 1200. The answer is to set the transponder to "Mode 3/A Code 1200". It was the only question I missed.
I hope this answers the question.
3)For the online format how long is the material available to you?BEST ANSWER: There is no expiration date - you get free updates delivered automatically.Can the "Learn To Fly Couse" be used for 2 people in the same family? My son and I are planning to take the course.

These questions do not effect the progress of your lessons if answered incorrectly. They are there to help you.I purchased the Sporty's online Private Pilot Course a year ago. Do I need to upgrade that course to this 2017 version?BEST ANSWER: Just log into the course and you will have the most current program.Can I also watch the videos on my iPhone if I buy the online version? Or do I have to purchase both the online and the iPhone version in order to watch the videos on both my PC and my iPhone?BEST ANSWER: With the 2018 course, you get access to the online, iOS app, and Apple TV app - all for the same price and all with automatic sync. Just buy once and use it anywhere.I am debating between the VFR Refresher and the Private Pilot Test Prep course to catch me up on everything since I haven't flown in 20 years.
