Here are some of the things we do at Sporty's to make flying safer, easier and more fun.

Pilot shop. Our world famous store, which began in the trunk of a Studebaker, has everything a pilot needs, from flight training courses and headsets to flight bags and iPad accessories.

Rob Reider shooting new videoVideo production. We are passionate about teaching people to fly. This began as in-person ground schools in the 1960s, and over the years has evolved into sophisticated video courses. Our team of flight instructors, video producers, and software developers work side-by-side to produce the finest training products in the world. Our studio is the airport, so we're always out shooting new footage to show what flying is really like. More Info

App development. Delivering an exceptional training experience means offering our courses in as many formats as possible. That includes DVDs and our streaming online learning platform, but also native iPad/iPhone and Android apps. At Sporty's, we don't rely on "off the shelf" solutions; we create custom apps that make flight training easier. By controlling every step of the process, from script writing to video editing to app development, we can keep our courses up to date with changing regulations and technology. More Info

We also operate an active flight school at our headquarters, with over 15 training aircraft and hundreds of students per year.

This everyday experience also helps us to understand what pilots really need, and develop products that work better and last longer. More Info
