  • Very difficult to follow.

    By Dingo Madness
    They rush the info at you so quickly it takes multiple times reviewing it to get the gist.
  • Passed Private and Instrument written exams

    By basictheory
    I used Sporty’s for both private and instrument ground courses and passed with a 92% and 93%, respectively. No course will fully prepare you, but, Sporty’s delivered the course content and test prep to get me ready to test and be prepared for real life IFR and actual time in IMC. Looking forward to returning for my CPL!
  • Great for the basics and learning for testing

    I am enjoying this for the basics and
  • How to Fly Online Course

    By JGalt2
    This is an excellent 1st class course for new pilots or for those like me who flew long ago & now wish to become current again. In my younger days I was a CFI, but I needed to get a career started & I stopped flying. The videos & text reviews are spot on. They are very thorough. They explain everything a private pilot needs to know & more. The flying videos demonstrate most of the maneuvers in ways easy to understand. And the quizzes are fun. Some are a little tricky in that one should look at the words carefully before answering, but then pilots should always look at things carefully for safety reasons.
  • Buggy Chromecast

    By Sators
    The Chromecast streaming functions are extremely buggy and frustrating, especially trying to finish one video and go on to the next. Even trying to submit this review in-app, the text color is white on a white background making it impossible to actually see the review I am currently authoring. Perhaps because my iPad settings are dark mode but the Sporty’s app doesn’t support that? Grr.
  • Very good training aid

    By ifrJeff
    Initially I was very disappointed with the training program. My home internet connection is metered and not reliably consistent so I was having a difficult time streaming the videos to my laptop (Netflix usually okay) and the program doesn’t allow saving the videos to a computer. The tv option wasn’t going to work for the same reasons as my laptop plus it required additional purchases. My Android tablet was useless because it came without “google play” installed. That left the tiny iPhone 7. The apple app works very well but the entire Instrument Rating Course downloaded to the phone takes 12.57 GB without the extra videos and references. My cellular internet is unlimited but the connection isn’t consistent enough for streaming video for studying which also eliminates using the cloud for storage. The problem with downloading the videos is you cannot allow the device to sleep or the app closes and any partial download is lost. I changed my device sleep settings to “never” while downloading. Allowing background updates will allow short periods away from the Sporty’s app before it shuts down. If you use ForeFlight you are familiar with the situation except ForeFlight defaults to keeping the device awake. Overall, I think the content in the Instrument Training Course is very good and worth the expense.
  • Doesn’t tell you price until after you waste time downloading

    By TYJO2995
    Just put the price on top so one doesn’t have to waste time downloading to see it cost $150!
  • Most practical aviation training available by far

    By itsnotreallyfree
    I’ve tried a handful of different training apps (4 to be exact) of some of the other most popular ones out there, and this training program and app is by far the best developed and user friendly online training that I’ve use so far. The difference is, this program was noticeably designed for its users, YOU. Not for the people behind the program. I’d recommend the Sporty’s Pilot Training to everyone. Happy confirmed customer rite here.
  • Rusty Pilot Radio Refresher

    By Eldersam
    After not flying for 25 years, the hardest thing to deal with was the rapid fire ATC communications. The flying comes back fast, the navigation and weather have been made crazy simple by tech but communications, oh my goodness it was way harder than I expected. This course is fantastic as it updates you on the best practices and shows you real examples for much of what you need for cross country flights. Arriving/departing Cass D, C & B airports. I would have liked more interaction of filing VFR ICAO flight plans and more interaction with Flight Service. But it helped me a lot!
  • App sync issues

    By Brad Byrd
    The course itself is great, however there is a bit of a headache in keeping the course progress in sync. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, and am logged into my sports account on all three. The progress sync between the iPad and iPhone is quick and great, but that progress doesn’t sync with the Apple TV or vice versa. It’s creates quite a bit of a headache.
