Sporty’s continues to deliver unprecedented value and outstanding learning experiences with new content and functionality for its popular Learn to Fly Course. Nearly four hours of new high-definition video content and animations have been added along with improved features for the popular written test prep application.
New video content includes training in cross-country flight operations that focuses on airspace, chart interpretation, planning, and detailed weather analysis that takes advantage of the latest products and technology available from the Aviation Weather Center and Lockheed Martin Flight Service. Real-world cross-country scenarios examine pilotage and dead reckoning while also incorporating GPS and modern iPad EFB applications. For those transitioning to night flying, you’ll also appreciate new tips and techniques. Supplemented with new graphics and 3D animations that offer incredible detail, these new segments are sure to provide student pilots with information relevant to modern technology and the current training environment.
Additionally, Sporty’s is pleased to introduce on-screen Meteorologist Scott Dimmich in this latest version. “We’re very pleased that Scott has joined Sporty’s talented group of video hosts,” said Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke. “Scott’s extensive television experience, weather expertise and vast aviation knowledge really shines as he discusses advanced weather theory and frontal weather as it relates to cross-country flying.”
