What's New in Sporty's 2019 Courses

Oct 23, 2018

Learning to fly is one of the most exciting journeys in life, but it also takes hard work and dedication. That means much more than just logging time in the left seat of an airplane, too. In fact, years of experience at our flight school have proven that using a home study course is the key to efficient flight training. The right course can save you time, money, and frustration – and make you a better pilot. 

That’s why Sporty’s 2019 Learn to Fly Course is such an exciting update. New content, flexible app options, and smart study tools all combine to offer an unmatched training experience. The powerful test prep tools mean you’ll be prepared to ace the written test, but that’s just the beginning. In depth video segments focus on real world flying, detailed lesson plans help organize your training, and Sporty’s flight instructors are always available to help.

The team at Sporty's Academy is always working on new features, and we're excited to show off some of the latest additions for 2019.
