go for platinum
I went basic. Basic is okay. Platinum would definitely have been a better choice. So far I am okay with what I paid for. I have not received an e-mail or a phone number from a flight crew advisor. My only complaint is "Not having someone to explain what I was not quite understanding. It was the weekend though. Plus this is all new for me. First-generation of my family and first of my friends. Yeah, so I am going blind with a lot to take in. Any help would have been greatly appreciated. I want the best that sportys has to offer. But, I have to dip my toe in before I jump all the way in. Sportys pilot shop, I will always give an honest review and a fair rating. that's why 4 out of 5 stars. Thank you for reading my review. If it's helpful let me know. LETS DO SOMETHING AMAZING!!! From your favorite artist. TOON 2020

I do not like the membership because:
1. The Garmin courses are not accessible
2. There is not a section specific to Commercial Oral training [like flashcards or a list of questions & responses with explanations]

Had it since it came out almost. Live nice and close so it's a nice value for me and used it when I got my instrument rating and now studying for commercial. Enjoy all the learning that's made possible with this. Need to make it down for the flight lesson. As a pilot and aircraft owner, I find the value of this very worth while as I order supplies and such.
