I received it quicker than quoted and received all the books, pilot bag, calculator etc. in one box nice and secure. I've seen several videos, and have done some quizzes. Thus far everything seems top quality. I will update once I've started the flight training and see if this taught me anything or not.
There is truly no point in attaching neither a photo or video, as it's exactly what you see in the product photo.June 9, 2019Purchased

2 months agoDurability1 / 5Reliability1 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?NoI wouldn't consider this a "Course"If you are looking at the with the intentions of an independent study i would like to warn you. There isn't a "course" to take. Its a bunch of outdated videos then you just struggle through practice tests. I was hoping for something with a little more structure and something geared more towards an independent study rather than supplies to buy if you were taking ground school at Sporty's.April 1, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Consider the Written Test Endorsement in this KitGreat kit, for what I needed to finally finish my private. I see it's easy to argue that the cumulative value of the stuff is simply around or below retail, but the endorsement to take the written, included in this package, appears under-discussed here. It's why I bought it. Practice as much as we want, then ace the tests to get what we need to take the real written, is within this package. Good job Sporty's, and you should make this more prominent in your promotion of this kit in my opinion. My local flying clubs love a new student with a written completion, and a fresh med, before we get in the cockpit.March 13, 2019Purchased
3 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesNeeds more.Not enough time spent on the more complicated areas of the course like weight and balance, charts and take off and landing distance, not enough on graph work. Seems like just a video course to watch then your on your own! Needs more interaction.March 9, 2019Purchased
3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAmazing Product and Even Better Customer ServiceI am starting my PPL at 0 but I am not one to learn from just reading a book or classroom lecture so I did a little research and out of 3 online ground courses to choose from I went with Sporty's. As soon as I bought the program the app was available and I was already addicted to the videos and the follow up quiz after some of the videos. I probably could have stayed up all night. A few days later I get an email stating the shipment with the flight bag, books and other materials is coming and they want feedback when I get it.
The box comes and I noticed that the box is soaked. I live in AZ so it rarely rains so it had to have happened in transit some how. I let them know that the some of the items got a little wet and they jumped all over it trying to help me take care of any damaged items. The person I worked with was amazing.
Now that I have everything I have put together my own study habits that work best for me. I watch some of the videos and then review the quiz and then read from the texts. I feel I can understand the lesson and can read much faster than I normally read.
I love this course so much that I already got the Instrument Rating Course and will write up my review when I get started.
Thank you Sporty's and Jack for your help.February 1, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery impressed with everything.Bag looks very professional with embroidered name on lid.

5 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Overall great product!The items are of great quality. Especially the bag, the embroidery is a great touch! As far as the training material, the videos are easy to watch, easy to follow, very insightful and filled with great knowledge. My only critique would be to have practical and interactive training sessions. For example, Have problem-based questions focusing on performance charts, navigation and weight and balance That actually has to be filled out by the student and walked through from start to finish instead of watching it on a video. Throughout the entire course learning the charts, computations and interpolations proved to be the most difficult to grasp. I rated the value at 4 of 5 only because the price point is a little higher when compared to the market competitors. Still although for the money, it’s a great package.January 22, 2019Purchased

Browse 38 questions Browse 38 questions and 41 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?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!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 live in Duluth, Minnesota and am wondering what are the requirements for the check ride?
