Description

It’s free to get started - including interactive FAA practice tests and HD training videos. SPORTY’S 2018 LEARN TO FLY COURSE For the cost of a single flight lesson, Sporty’s Learn to Fly course will save you time and money earning your pilot certificate.

It is a comprehensive flight-training companion designed to make your lessons more efficient, more complete and more fun. We operate our own flight school at Sporty’s, so we know your time and money are precious. Invest in a course that saves you both. There is nothing extra to buy—just add flight instructor! INCLUDES: 20 hours of HD video training, knowledge test prep, interactive flight maneuvers guide, video-referenced Airman Certification Standards (ACS), Flight Training Syllabus, Ask a CFI service. After successful course completion, you’ll earn an FAA knowledge test endorsement and FAA WINGS credit. SPORTY’S 2018 INSTRUMENT RATING COURSE With Sporty’s Complete Instrument Rating Course, you’ll ace your FAA written test—we guarantee it! But this app is much more than just test prep. With incredible in-flight footage and 3D animations, we unlock the secrets of the IFR system so you can be a safe, smooth and proficient pilot. Detailed video segments cover both glass cockpits and analog gauges. INCLUDES: 13 hours of video training, knowledge test prep, interactive instrument maneuvers guide, video-referenced Airman Certification Standards (ACS), Flight Training Syllabus, Ask a CFI service. After successful course completion, you’ll earn an FAA knowledge test endorsement and FAA WINGS credit. SPORTY’S FLYING WITH FOREFLIGHT COURSE ForeFlight has become the most popular app for pilots, with a mix of powerful features and an easy-to-use interface. But like any software, there’s a lot to learn and some time spent learning the basics can really pay off. That’s why Sporty’s developed this comprehensive ForeFlight training video, packed jargon-free tips and real world shortcuts. It’s ideal for prospective users, new ForeFlight pilots and experienced pros alike. INCLUDES: 2 hours of HD video training, review quiz, ForeFlight Pilot’s Guide, FAA Advisory Circular 91-78 and an iPad preflight checklist. After successful course completion, ​you’ll earn a ForeFlight course completion certificate.

  • Video downloading is an exercise in frustration, hosed my iCloud backups

    For whatever reason the developers of this app store any videos downloaded for offline use in the app’s “documents” directory, meaning that they’ll be automatically be backed up to iCloud as part of iOS’s iCloud backup feature. This is not only a waste of iCloud storage space (I can download the videos again via the app if necessary), but in my case it prevented iOS from backing up altogether as uploading 6GB of instrument training videos over my slow DSL connection would take an eternity. I’m very lucky that nothing happened to my iPad in the weeks between downloading the videos and iOS notifying me of the lack of completed backups, as it very likely would have resulted in losing important data. Additionally, the offline download functionality is poorly implemented. Want to download all videos in a given section? The app will begin downloading all videos at once, leading to it taking an eternity for even a single video to complete. What’s more, if you switch away from the app for more than a moment or two, the video downloads are interrupted and you’ll need to manually start them again. And start again they will. Even if the video was 90% downloaded, an interrupted download will start over from scratch. This means that on all but the fastest connections you’re forced to sit and keep your device awake to let the download complete, lest you be forced to start the download over again.
  • Love the app-online sync

    Great content, really easy to use app, and I love how all my progress is sync’d to the online app. I like going back and forth and this makes it simple to do that. Also appreciate how clean this app is on iPhone. Some apps seem to be mainly for iPad, but Pilot Training is rock solid on my iPhone 7.
  • Lots of great aviation training content all in one place.

    Got my written test endorsement without ever seeing a flight instructor.
  • Great but missing 1 thing

    I would give this app 5 stars I love it but it can sync my progress between devices. If I watch a video on my tablet and then switch to my phone it doesn’t show it as done on my phone
