10 reasons pilots prefer Sporty's courses:

1. Four formats, one price

We know you’re busy, so our course is available almost anywhere. Use our online learning platform for complete access to videos and quizzes anywhere you have an internet connection. There’s no software to install – just log in and start learning. Or use our dedicated mobile apps for iPad, iPhone, Android, and Apple TV, which allow you to download videos for offline viewing. Progress automatically syncs between all formats so you can start a study session on your phone and finish on your laptop without missing a beat.

Completion certificate2. Get your written test endorsement

When you complete the course, we’ll  give you the flight instructor endorsement to take the written test—instantly! You can take this endorsement to the FAA testing center, and log it in your ForeFlight logbook. It's complete preparation for the FAA Knowledge Test.

3. Pass all your tests—guaranteed!

Our course is so complete we guarantee you’ll pass all three tests: the written, oral and flight. Our video segments make complicated subjects like aerodynamics and weather easy to understand, so you’ll impress the examiner. Plus, our Airman Certification Standards Study Guide cross-references every required task to the videos, making it easy to review for the checkride.

HD Maneuvers4. dynamic in-flight video

Sporty’s courses are famous for their HD video and 3D animations. Not a boring ground school, we put you in the cockpit for a real world look at what flying is all about. You’ll see the flight maneuvers from the left seat, and you’ll hear actual communications with air traffic control. Plus, each video segment includes helpful review notes for efficient studying, and many also have review quizzes to reinforce key concepts. 

5. 32 fully-narrated hd maneuvers

In addition to the comprehensive video segments, Sporty’s Learn to Fly course also includes a detailed maneuvers guide. All 32 maneuvers you might be tested on are included, with a 3D animation of the maneuver, narrated procedures, common errors, and completion standards. It’s a great way to review for the checkride.

Test Prep Tools6. powerful test prep tools

You’ll ace the written test with our interactive tools. Create customized study sessions from the actual FAA test questions and see the right and wrong answers, plus plain English explanations written by our team of CFIs. Detailed analytics show you which areas need the most help, and allow you to study only the questions you’ve missed. Then, take a practice test that simulates the real knowledge exam you'll have to pass. 

7. flight instructor tracking

We make it easy for your instructor to follow your progress through the course, so you always stay in sync with your in-person lessons. Invite a CFI to see your practice test scores and review your video progress.

8. Ask a CFI

If you're stumped by a difficult subject, talk to the experienced flight instructors at Sporty's. We have a team of over 25 CFIs on staff at our flight school, training students every day just like you, so they can offer quick, helpful answers. Just click the Ask a CFI button to send a message.

Complete Training Syllabus

9. complete training syllabus

Research shows that pilots learn better when they use a high quality syllabus. We include a complete Training Course Outline as part of our course – the same one we use in our flight school. It includes detailed outlines for both ground and flight lessons. Think of it as a bridge between your at-home study and flight training.

10. Airman Certification Standards

Our Learn to Fly Course includes the full text of the FAA’s Airman Certification Standards (ACS) - your guide to the checkride - and cross-references each task to the video segments. Our course also emphasizes deep understanding instead of just memorizing questions, something the FAA now discourages.

For what you actually receive it would be cheaper to just purchase the items indivually. Three of the books are downloaded for free in PDF. After totaling the E6B, bag, plotter, fuel tester that only comes to around $120, and that is if you want that use that bag. The FAR/AIM another $17...etc. There are far better test prep books not valuing $200+. I would recommend doing your research before investing in this bundle. I would go a different route if I could do it again.

More than just a bargain.
The kit contains just about everything you need as a student pilot. I like the videos in the first module (that’s all I have watched so far). They are thorough enough but I watch all the videos I can find on YouTube, not just the Sporty’s. I really like the instructor Sporty’s used to make the videos. My flight instructor had me go through the books in the kit and tab pages he says are very important to learn. All-in-all, this kit is complete and buying the items together saves you quite a lot.

Assembly required
I was under the impression this online course would've been somewhat organized and outlined. I would prefer an outline of chapters to read and corresponding videos to watch along with the quizzes to take. Instead, it is a teach yourself by just watching the videos, one after another, and reading the books from front to back. I'd prefer more structure with this.

The videos seem to be good with lots of information, but I believe it would be more functional with better structure. Directions to assemble furniture has a better outline to achieve the end product.

How long is the course accessible online after purchase?
James M on Aug 9, 2016
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.
A shopper on Mar 1, 2017
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?
Jake_2018 on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Go to www.sportys.com/mycourses and log into your 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?
Malcom K on Jan 28, 2017
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?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this kit includes only the online course.
