2 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesLearning in a format that works for me, and my learning style.Being of more advanced years, I had sat down with my prespective Flight Instructor, at a School that had come recommended by a friend who works for Lufthansa training here in Arizona.
The meeting was for my part a joint interview, I was establishing that that there program, and instructor's were the right fit! Yes, I even took the wife along, as this is as much about me as her... Time, and commitment. I bring this up as it was the instructor, who after talking through the whole PPL.process, went on to talk about outside training, as in online, a technical school or other forms of out cockpit training. He showed me online in his office three particular options. H. Carefully went through the pros and cons of each one, they were not all in the same price range granted as well. He had taken the time to listen to me explain the way I learn, and Inwas very clear about my intentions in my training, and even my long term goals.
We all came to the same conclusion that the Sportys Pilot.Shop appeared to be my best option, plus they also had a deal.on a package, Note: I am Scottish and love my deals! :-)
So the course itself, I like the pace it goes at, of course we can all self place also. I had decided to burn through the course, before I even have started at the school. My reasoning is I want to gain a broad base of knowledge that I can have access from day one. I will then go back through as a different pace to co inside with my flight school training
One of the first things that I found, going back to school is that you have to retrain yourself doing online courses.
This came very naturally and quickly. I was happy at my performance at getting good scores on each session, as I progressed. #1 Tip, go with you gut on answering questions, several times I would see second guess my answer, over think and choose a close but not correct answer.
The course reinforces that making the correct choice is essential, and that you should never ever be rushed into a decision, as you and your potential passengers lives are at risk. Some of the video segments are pretty long, of course you can pause, but I prefer to get on through it, and then test my level on knowledge and attention at the test at the end.
The video's are well put together, showing you either on board actual footage of what is being discussed or great diagrams etc, makes it so very easy to follow, and understand. I am more than confident, that between this awesome course, and my flight instructor, I will be the very proud owner of my PPL.December 5, 2019Purchased

3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesTake Off With This Program!I am enjoying it very much. So much information and wisdom. Much has changed since I first learned to fly (1980's), and so much still the same but totally worth relearning. The materials are very thorough, easy to understand, and pertinent for both the experienced and new pilot. I would so recommend it! My friend and instructor strongly encouraged me to get the program, and is also impressed with everything. I love the new electronic E6B. One recommendation - offer a cool T-shirt as an additional option.August 18, 2019Purchased

The course is very detailed and informative. At times it seems as if some information is incomprehensible and you may feel overwhelmed, but before you know it, it begins to make sense and you understand it. The true climax point will be when I finally put it into practice in the air. I would definitely recommend this course.July 27, 2019Purchased

Browse 41 questions Browse 41 questions and 45 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.

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?
