2 months agoEase Of Use1 / 5Value4 / 5Assembly requiredI was under the impression this online course would've been somewhat organized and outlined. I would prefer an outline of chapters to read and corresponding videos to watch along with the quizzes to take. Instead, it is a teach yourself by just watching the videos, one after another, and reading the books from front to back. I'd prefer more structure with this.
The videos seem to be good with lots of information, but I believe it would be more functional with better structure. Directions to assemble furniture has a better outline to achieve the end product.May 1, 2018Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 28 questions Browse 28 questions and 30 answersHow long is the course accessible online after purchase?BEST ANSWER: There is no limit - you get free updates as we make them.Is "Sporty's Deluxe Learn To Fly Course Kit (Online)" certified as an approved FAA training provider? Is it certified in accordance with Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations part 141? I don't want to buy this kit and than find out that I wasted my time and money because the FAA doesn't accept the Sporty's pilot training kit as an appropriate training course to satisfy the completion of the ground-training when I try to take the knowledge test.BEST ANSWER: Our course will satisfy the completion of the ground training for the written knowledge test. We also provide the endorsement required to take the written test. With a part 141 flight school the training materials that the flight school uses would have to be certified as part of the 141 training program.
Sporty's Academy is a part 141 flight school and the learn to fly courses are used as part of the training program.I first received my private pilot license in 1987. I accumulated about 15 hours of flying that year, got married and had kids and I stopped flying by 1988. I want to start flying again so I recently purchased the Microsoft Simulator X software along with the Saitek Flight Controls. I need to reintroduce myself to everything I learned in Ground School in 1987 with today's information. What is my best route to take to start flying again. I would like to take a ground school course at home while practicing on the Microsoft Simulator software then head out to an airport to fly with an instructor. Is this the best route? Can I take a ground school class at home?BEST ANSWER: Malcom,
Since you have some time and did complete your PPL I would say that this course would be a good way for you to get current again and brush up on the current rules and regs. I used the course to complete my PPL after a 10 year break between when I started flight school and was able to complete my PPL. It worked out great! It was much easier than sitting in a classroom and it allowed me to move at my own pace. It helps to have at least some working knowledge of the FAR/AIM and aeronautical knowledge to really make the course beneficial to you but if you do not remember anything, no worries, the course does go through even the basics. Overall, I highly recommend the course. I know some people do not like the online/DVD approach to ground school but to me it is the way of the future and I enjoy it a lot more. Hope this helps you!In the delux version of learn to fly do you get the DVDs and online as well?BEST ANSWER: No, this kit includes only the online course.I live in Duluth, Minnesota and am wondering what are the requirements for the check ride?
