Sporty’s Launches 2024 Pilot Training Courses

Updates include new interactive training resources, smart notes and in-course notifications

Sporty’s award-winning pilot training courses are updated for 2024 with a number of significant enhancements that make training more engaging and more efficient. Updates for 2024 include new video segments, new training resources, improved study guides, and in-course notifications.

New Video Segments

New for 2024 are major updates to segments on runway safety, wake turbulence, and using both digital and paper charts. Plus, the Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot courses have been completely reorganized to flow more logically and cover each topic in detail. As usual, videos focus on real world flying and practical tips, not just memorization.

 New Training resources

A number of new training resources have also been added for 2024. The most noticeable additions are interactive exercises and smart notes. Now students can go beyond videos with interactive and engaging learning tools. Instrument simulators allow knobs to be twisted demonstrating the needle swing on the panel, chart quizzes help teach complicated symbols, and detailed systems diagrams simulate failure modes of the pitot tube or static port.

Smart Notes are a centralized tool to help organize key takeaways. These notes are easily accessible from anywhere in the course. Simply click or tap the floating “New Note” button at the bottom right of the screen and the Smart Notes interface will appear. As many notes as needed can be added and they are organized with a simple menu system. When adding a new note from any of the video lessons, the note will automatically insert the name of the lesson and generate a clickable link that can be used to jump back to that lesson when reviewing notes.

Improved Study Guides

Sporty’s powerful FAR feature provides instant access to the complete Federal Aviation Regulations, packed with essential information for any pilot. It’s fast and searchable to streamline studying, and it’s always up to date. For 2024 time-saving tools that highlight which sections are applicable to each certificate level have been added. A new bookmark tool also makes it easy to review important sections.

 In-course Notifications

Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course includes lifetime access and lifetime updates, meaning pilots always have access to the latest video training, test prep questions and FAA resources. To help keep users aware of updates, a new Inbox located at the top right of course has been added. Users can check back here to learn about new training content and updates added to the course, as well as the latest flight training news and tips from the team of flight instructors at Sporty’s.

Lifetime access

All of these upgrades join an already impressive list of features, including over 25 hours of HD and 4K video, powerful test prep tools, a comprehensive document library, and unlimited practice tests. Pilots can even earn an automatic flight instructor endorsement to take the FAA knowledge test when complete. All Sporty’s courses work on a wide variety of devices, including online, iOS devices, Android phones and tablets, and smart TVs—and progress automatically syncs between devices.

Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course [E1753A], Instrument Rating Course [E4200A], and Commercial Pilot Course [E249A] may be purchased for $299 each at or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS. Free lifetime updates are included with each course.
