Our award-winning courses have helped over 50,000 pilots learn to fly or add a rating, but we're never standing still. The Sporty's Academy team is constantly adding new content and innovative features to make our Learn to Fly Course the best training product in aviation. It's everything you need to prepare for your written test and earn your pilot certificate, with ground school, test prep, and real world training - all in one easy-to-use package.


9 reasons pilots prefer Sporty's courses:

1. Save time and money

For the cost of a single flight lesson, our course will save you hours of time in the air and hundreds of dollars. The step-by-step video lessons are better than ground school, helping you prepare for your next flight lesson ahead of time so you spend less time reviewing and more time learning. 

Completion certificate2. Get your written test endorsement

Ace the written with our interactive test preparation program. You can create customized study sessions from the actual FAA test questions and see the right and wrong answers, plus plain English explanations written by our team of CFIs. Then, take a practice test that simulates the real knowledge exam you'll have to pass. We’ll even give you the flight instructor endorsement to take the written test—right from the course! You can take this endorsement to the FAA testing center, and log it in your ForeFlight logbook.

3. Pass all your tests—guaranteed!

Our course is so complete we guarantee you’ll pass all three tests: the written, oral and flight. Incredible 3D animations and dynamic in-flight video make complicated subjects like aerodynamics and weather easy to understand, so you’ll impress the examiner. Plus, our Airman Certification Standards Study Guide cross-references every required task to the videos, making it easy to review for the checkride.

4. Be ready for real world flying

Learning to fly means a lot more than just passing a test. That’s why Sporty’s course goes beyond the textbook to teach you real world flying, making you a safer, more confident pilot. Special Air Facts segments with renowned aviation author Richard Collins are packed with no-nonsense tips you can use after the checkride.

5. Includes the new Airman Certification Standards

Sporty's courses are famous for being the most up-to-date and complete training products available. That focus continues with the FAA's introduction of new Airman Certification Standards (ACS). Our Learn to Fly Course includes the full text of this document - your guide to the checkride - and cross-references each task to the video segments. Our course also emphasizes deep understanding instead of just memorizing questions, something the FAA now discourages.

6. Covers Private, Recreational and Sport

Our Learn to Fly Course is really three courses in one – you choose the license that makes sense for you. Get started with your training and progress toward your first solo, the critical first step for everyone. Then choose the Sport, Recreational or Private Pilot track – it’s all here! Plus, experience has shown that students learn most effectively when the training process is divided into manageable steps. So each module builds on the previous one, creating a building-block approach that saves you time and money.

Modular training

7. Four convenient formats available

Study anywhere, anytime – choose from DVD, online, iPhone/iPad app, or Apple TV app. Your time is valuable, so we offer our complete course in a variety of formats to suit different needs. Choose the one that is best for you. Every feature of our complete course is available in each of the three formats, so you can study on your TV, Mac, PC, iPad or iPhone. No complicated software to install – it just works!

Great value
I have had the course for two weeks now. I would not be flying as easily now if I wouldn't have purchased this kit. Fantastic value. Videos are relevant and easy to understand regardless of your experience. I have already recommended this kit to friends that have been wanting to learn the skills to become a pilot. I plan on obtaining my IFR as well upon completion of the PPL. Count me in on the complete Instrument Rating kit when the time comes.

Pros: Detailed Easy to use looks great on iPad Takes some confusing and complex topics and makes them much more intuitive love the segments on the 'reality' of flight outside the books. Cons: 'quitting' out of tests is not intuitive would like more explanations of some topics (but this is why we have CFI's) Exceptional product and only wish I found it sooner!
