2018 edition now available
Sporty’s Instrument Rating course has been enhanced with significant updates completed and new content added. Viewers start by riding along on a real-world IFR flight to Chicago Midway to learn about the preparation, flying skills, communications, navigation techniques and instrument approach skills necessary for the flight. But in this update, 25 new, fully narrated HD maneuvers offer step-by-step instructions for all the key elements in the Airman Certification Standards for the instrument rating.
“With new regulations, new technology and refined teaching methods, our Instrument Rating Course is always a work in progress,” says Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke. “The new material in this revised course makes our award-winning Instrument course even better.”
Also new in this update is HD video training on developing instrument flying skills, using flight simulators during instrument training, turbulence and weather challenges as well as iPad use for digital charts and weather forecasting.
Sporty’s Instrument Rating Course now includes three formats at the same price whether online, for iPads/iPhones or Apple TV. Since the video and test prep progress is synced automatically, the user can switch back and forth among formats.
“This enhanced sync capability is possible due to Sporty’s Pilot Training app, a completely new iOS app, built from the ground up,” adds Radtke. “Pilots can use this app to stream video segments over WiFi or LTE or save them for offline viewing.”
