You would start the next chapter, and it would begin talking about areas, procedures, or topics that you hadn't covered, but the course acted like it had covered them in great detail. I took the course, and on my first practice test I scored a 40. Many of the questions I had no idea what they were talking about, the course never covered it. I gave up on it, and requested my money back from Sporty's. To their credit they did give me a refund.November 5, 2019Purchased

1 year agoReliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAnother great product from Sporty'sI used Sporty's learn to fly course to help me get my private pilot certificate. It definitely save me both time and money at the airstrip and allowed me to be prepared when I showed up for lessons. The same hold's true for this course. The information is presented in a logical order that builds upon the previous lesson. Being able to download videos to review while away from an internet connection is extremely helpful. I really enjoy having the maneuvers section available for me to use when I fly with my safety pilot which is helping me build more confidence for my checkride! I look forward to my next Sporty's course after I obtain my instrument rating... seaplane... multiengine... I'm not sure but what I am sure of is that Sporty's course will not disappoint!November 29, 2018Purchased

1 year agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAbbreviations , and study on missed questionIf you would highlight abbreviations , so you can see what they mean , it would help out a lot . you are reading and an abbreviation comes along , you don't know what it means , so what you are reading is useless because you do not know how to apply it , it would help out a lot if there was a link to show what abbreviations mean without leaving where you are at and search for this information , **** also when you miss a question and you go to study on it , there is a link to go study below the question , but the link does not take you to where you need to go , if you miss a question and you go to study it at the link , it should take you directly to what the question was about , it would save you a lot of time , instead of looking through tons of stuff , looking for what you are trying to find !!!!

1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery Watchable and InformativeI've watched all the videos and started the quizzes for the test prep. The online and app format is perfect for squeezing in some studying here and there. Rob Reider does a very good job of hosting and I enjoy listening to how he speaks. Facts are presented rapid-fire for sure. Dangers are laid out in plain language. The series feels fresh and the methods taught and avionics referenced are current. Maybe it shouldn't matter to me, but the fact that the videos don't look like something Marty brought with him in the DeLorean from 1985 makes the experience more enjoyable. Things are organized well and it's easy to re-watch a specific video lesson for help on test questions or that will be pertinent for a specific upcoming flight lesson.
The test prep format is also great for taking with you in app format--answer a few while waiting for your coffee, etc. You can also concentrate the questions on a specific topic or set of topics.
Overall, really great. I've been watching at home, listening in the car, and answering test questions instead of checking Instagram.
And, years from now I will definitely log in to review prior to proficiency checks and IFR flights.May 15, 2018Purchased
1 year agoDurability4 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesPassed FAA written using only this courseVideos are all facts and very little theory. If memorization is your learning style, these should work well for you. Question database very extensive and I actually had two exact questions on my FAA test. Unkown if I've learned enough for the oral.April 15, 2018Purchased
1 year agoWould You Recommend?NoNot a good learning tool for meIn my opinion, this course just sounds like they are reading straight out of a book and never pausing to really teach you. This is not teaching, it is just a book on tape. The narration puts me to sleep. I did my VFR with the king series videos and that was valuable to me. I decided to give this series a try because it was considerably less expensive than the competitive program. I guess you get what you pay for.March 16, 2018Purchased
