The world standard in flight training
For the cost of a single flight lesson, Sporty’s Learn to Fly course will save you hours of time in the air and hundreds of dollars. This is not a weekend “cram course” or a boring ground school class on video. It is a comprehensive home study course that includes ground school, test prep and flight training. You’ll pass all your tests (we guarantee that), but you’ll also have more fun learning to fly and be a better pilot after you earn your license.
We operate our own flight school at Sporty’s, so we know your time and money are precious. Invest in a course that saves you both. There is nothing extra to buy – just add flight instructor!
3 Test Guarantees
Pass your written, oral and flight tests or get your money back
Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course is much more than just written test prep. We take you into the airplane to show you what flying is really like, so you’re prepared for the checkride and for real world flying after you have your license. Our course is so complete, we guarantee you will pass all three tests required to earn your license: the written, oral and flight tests. If you don’t, we’ll give you your money back. It’s as simple as that.
3 Certificates Included
Only Sporty’s includes the Sport, Recreational and Private licenses
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.
