I’m not actually going for Commercial Rating, however being an 800+ hour VFR pilot with 16+ years flying my own plane (a very nice Socata TB10), I’m always interested in improving as a Pilot. The Range and Detail of Truly useful knowledge is Exceptional! ... also, the learning approach of using Q&A’s with directed answers to excellent source materials is a 5-Star method for my way of learning.

1 month agoReliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent Course!!Over the last year or so I have been slowly working towards my Commercial Pilot Written Exam. When I first went about studying I purchased the course from Sheppard Air as Sporty's didn't have anything available at the time. The ease of use wasn't Ideal on the other program so I decided to purchase Sporty's program and give it a try. After a while I was scoring in the high 80's/ low 90's pretty consistently and figured it was time for the test. However, before the test I logged back on the Sheppard Air and took a few practice exams scoring almost identical scores. I ended up mid 90's on the actual and I'd say both programs are good. However, I give Sporty's a huge edge on the ease of use and overall software performance. Nice work Sporty’s!July 7, 2020This course is not a structured series of lessons, but essentially a customizable test using questions from the FAA question bank. So while this course can guide your self-study, it is NOT a structured prep course. That said, the answer explanations are very good and the reference to the appropriate handbook or CFR is helpful. The videos for the check ride maneuvers are also helpful for visualizing how the airplane moves. But I give this course only 3-stars because I wanted and expected a more guided review with lessons.May 19, 2020Purchased
3 months agoDurability1 / 5Reliability2 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value2 / 5a bit outdated....Completed my FAA CAX knowledge test on 5/15/2020 after using this trainging tool for about 10 days. Overall it is a useful tool to check your level of knowledge. I did 5 simulated test sessions with each of them better than 99% correct answers in the days before the real FAA test. Got a score of just 93% correct answers in the real test.
MAIN ISSUE: There were 3 questions in the FAA test about ADS-B rules and that's not at all covered in the Sportys training. This training course needs to be updated ASAP ! Competing training courses do already include at least some questions about ADS-B rules, but the real test had some quite nasty questions I was not prepared for......May 15, 2020When I purchased the course, it was implied that a ground school component was included. When I logged in, it was simply a test prep. Yet in the welcome email, it specifically said this:
In the My Courses tab click on Commercial Pilot Course. From there, you can begin your online ground school."
There was no online ground school. Just a bunch of sample test questions.April 29, 2020Purchased

4 months agoDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?NoLacking substance; buy only for written testI was honestly somewhat disappointed by the materials available in this course. I understand, the Commercial License isn’t all that involved beyond really knowing your stuff from the Private Pilot knowledge areas. But there could still be video instruction for Commercial-specific knowledge and cross country planning considerations.
The only videos included in this course are very basic explanations of the maneuvers required during the practical exam.
The main value in this course is the written test practice and flashcards for oral exam practice. I would expect more in-depth material from Sporty’s; I loved the Private and Instrument courses, but would rather not dig through those videos to freshen up on knowledge areas.
I already passed my written before buying this course, so it seems the main reason I paid $150 was for the flashcards. I’ll be working on those to try benefiting from the money spent, but I know the same material could be found in a $10 book - or free online.April 8, 2020Purchased

4 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGoodThe course is well organized and technically works well. Some of the test questions have images that must be seen to find the answer however you cannot see your multiple choice options at the same time. (On an iPad).
The flight manouvers videos are only 3D I was hoping to see real airplanes doing the maneuvers.March 27, 2020Purchased
