Increase Retention Rates. Sporty’s courses cover every element of flight and ground training from start to finish. Our course is designed to be used as part of your students’ daily training as well as prepare and endorse students for the FAA knowledge exam. The course is delivered in a easy-to-use online learning management system. Students can choose online or app and study whenever and wherever their busy schedules allows. These courses will keep your student engaged in the training process and excited about coming back to the airport.

Cut Overhead. We encourage you to use our included FAA-approved training course outlines as your curriculum. The TCO will allow for consistency and quality throughout the training process and provide the confidence that will resonate with your customers.

Sporty’s courses will encourage professional lesson presentations every time with little or no preparation. We offer an Instructor Guide to teach ground lessons so the instructor will need only one reference to prepare. Our Maneuvers and Procedures Guide will provide this same guidance in the air. Standardization training will no longer cost you money.

Boost Revenue. More students requiring less ground preparation will mean more time for your instructors in the air and better student performance. What’s more, our built-in ground lessons mean no more cancellations due to weather.

Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course – Enterprise Edition will permit you to utilize all of the benefits these courses have to offer.

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.

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.
