Sporty’s Flight Training Courses
Sporty’s is, first and foremost, an aviation educator. Founder Hal Shevers pioneered weekend instrument ground schools nearly 50 years ago, traveling the country to teach pilots the keys to IFR flying in just 3 days. Today, we operate an active flight school at our home airport (I69) with over 100 flight students.
This everyday practical experience with flight training makes us uniquely qualified to offer the most complete, up-to-date home study courses available. These complete courses are available on DVD, as interactive online courses and as complete mobile apps for the iPad and iPhone. They go far beyond the written test, with over 20 hours of in-flight footage and incredible 3D animations. The focus is on learning to be a great pilot, not just passing a test.
Sporty’s modular flight training approach is also unique. Our course gives you the flexibility to train the way you want, by offering complete modules for the Solo, Sport, Recreational and Private certificates. You choose the path that fits your goals. Plus, experience has shown that students learn most effectively when the training process is divided into manageable steps. So each module in our course builds on the previous one, creating a building-block approach that saves you time and money.
