2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat course for any pilot in trainingI bought the deluxe kit back in 2019 before I started flight training. If you like watching Youtube videos on flying non-stop then you'll find this course very easy to digest. The videos were very well put together and concepts explained very well. At the time of this review, Sporty's didn't have any courses for the CFI written and I wish I could've used them for that as I did for my sport pilot written. Compared to King Schools I much prefer this course. In the end I received an 85% on the sport pilot written and passed the checkride from tips in the course.April 8, 2020Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesImpressedI am very impressed with the course so far. All of the videos load up on my computer, iPad, iPhone and TVs with ease, truly making this course super doable. Thanks to the team at Sportys for continuing the learning tradition.Taking it all on the go!February 24, 2020Purchased

5 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesSporty’s prepares a very nice package, my only wish would be if they isolated a more dedicated portion just towards the written test. I was told the information is in the package, and they didn’t want you just to focus on the test instead of just learning all the material.January 10, 2020Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 51 questions Browse 51 questions and 55 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.How do I access the online or app course once I've gotten the deluxe kit? Is there a code to use to avoid paying the 200 for the app?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 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!I live in Duluth, Minnesota and am wondering what are the requirements for the check ride? So I need the check-ride to complete the course or can I do it locally?

Or would it require me to participate a school that follows part 141?BEST ANSWER: You can complete the flight portion at either a part 61 or part 141 school.I'm a Platinum Flight Crew member and already have access to the online course but I would like the physical items that come in this deluxe package.
