Sporty’s Releases 2020 Edition of Learn to Fly Course

Comprehensive checkride tools, smart TV apps, and FAA document library all added

Student pilots can save time and money by using Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course as part of their pilot training. Pilots who use Sporty’s course are guaranteed to pass both the FAA knowledge and practical tests. The course, available online and on mobile devices, also emphasizes preparation for real world flying beyond the checkride.

The 2020 edition of Sporty’s course now includes over 15 hours of HD video, which has been augmented with all-new segments on real-world communications, how to integrate tablets into flight training, how to use new weather forecast tools, and flying with glass cockpits such as the G1000.

“You won’t find one second of dull lectures in any of our courses,” says Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke. “We strive to make our Learn to Fly Course as engaging and insightful as an actual flight lesson with a terrific instructor.”

In addition to new video content, the knowledge test prep tools have also been significantly upgraded. Pilots can create customized study sessions from Sporty’s proprietary database of over 1000 questions and get concise explanations for each one, which helps the student grasp complex subject matter instead of simply memorizing. The course tracks performance by knowledge category and will create a Smart Study Session that focuses on the weakest areas. New for 2020 is a seamless sync process, so pilots can start a study session on their iPhone and complete it on their laptop. A detailed learning history is accessible on all devices.

“We don’t stop with the written test, though,” adds Radtke. “We prepare our students for the checkride with all-new oral exam flashcards, plus an interactive checkride checklist of what to bring for the big day. There’s even a video segment from Jason Blair, an active pilot examiner, with tips for the practical test.”

Another enhancement for 2020 is access to popular FAA handbooks including the Airplane Flying Handbook and the Aeronautical Information Manual. Sporty’s Pilot Training app includes powerful document management tools, including bookmarks and search, which makes studying easier and more effective.

A one-time purchase of Sporty’s course includes access to all platforms with automatic progress sync between platforms. This includes the interactive online portal, dedicated apps for iOS and Android, and even smart TV apps for Roku and Apple TV. The latest version of the Pilot Training app now supports Chromecast devices, so pilots can watch videos from the comfort of their living room.

Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course [E1753A] includes free lifetime updates and may be purchased for $249 at sportys.com/courses or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS. Existing users have access to all new features and content automatically.
