  • Solid app with a few really annoying details

    By The Angry Monkey
    In terms of flight training- this app is awesome. The sync between the Apple tv, iPhone, iPad and browser works great (though the lack of quizzing on the tv app is a bummer). The training material is high quality and very helpful. What’s fairly annoying is the download functionality. If you want to download all the videos in a chapter you have to tap on the download for each one. It doesn’t queue them so the download is really slow since all of them will download at the same time. Even if you download them one at a time, the CDN isn’t very fast so you end up waiting for a 150MB file to download for a single video. Inevitably the screen will sleep. When you wake the phone (even immediately) the download was canceled and you have to start over again. So it ends up taking forever to download all the content and you have to sit there and tap on the screen to keep it from sleeping. Very annoying. It also seems like their videos are the same size regardless of the target device. I doubt the file for an 8 minute video needs to be 150MB when it’s being played on an iPhone X. Sporty should account for the target device and provide appropriately sized files. I actually accidentally blew through my cell data not realizing that they were streaming full size video to my phone. Overall I highly recommend this product for private pilot training. It’s really helped me a lot!!
  • Would be 4 stars but…

    By wohnette
    Really well done training videos and practice quizzes. Main problem with the app is the fact that there’s no option to have the videos auto play one after the other. I drive a lot for work so this is pretty much the only time I can listen to the videos, but it’s very disruptive to have to reopen my phone to click the “play next video button”. I had sent an email to customer service when I first purchased the $200 PPL course, but it didn’t get me anywhere. Hopefully sportys app techs get this message and implement an auto play option for continuous video play.
  • Changes

    By TJBeechcraft
    So now I have to “subscribe” to receive “one year access” to a course? Something as simple as Flight Review? I don’t mind purchasing a course, but I should be able to keep and review it as long as I wish. My alternative will be to buy a paperback book that I can keep for reference. Sporty’s, you are losing my business.
  • This app is terrible

    By puppylover620
    You have to pay just to get more videos what a rip off if you people don’t want to spend 199$ I suggest you don’t download this app
  • Doesn’t restore purchase from App Store

    By James spikes
    I had it on my last two iPhones watched all the videos kept my progress took the two practice tests even passed my written. I went back to review the videos on my iPhone and now it tells me to buy Ap and my restore can’t be found. Had this problem last year it wouldn’t restore on my iPad but would on my iPhone contacted Sporty’s and they blamed apple.
  • Learning is about sequencing

    By Aberdeen64
    As you start the process of ground work, there are many books and courses to choose from. I found in the start that I was jumping from book to book with no real structure. Sporty’s Pilot course gave me the right sequence to follow and I feel that now everything is logical to my training and in order.
  • Enjoy the app. One issue though

    By firefly_843
    I am enjoying learning my private pilot material with the app and it’s great to be able to switch between CPU and device. One problem I’m having is that the app does not sync with my online work unless I log off and log back in. Minor inconvenience, but I’m not sure if there is a fix or not.
  • I would love it, however...

    By Joseph Pepper
    I know I would love this app however it will not let me, a young eagle, sign in. Is there anything i can do to change this? Thanks for your help.
  • Awesome App, Learning On The Go!

    By JohnJamesjones
    The app as well built and provides all the information you need for the various private pilot examinations. Support as fast to respond and genuinely cares about the experience and their students.
  • Fantastic
