This program gives today’s instrument pilot a real-world look at IFR operations through all phases of flight. The action-packed flights take place in a Cessna Skyhawk equipped with VOR receivers for navigation, a Garmin G1000-equipped Cessna Skylane and a high-performance Piper Malibu Mirage. SPORTY's GARMIN G1000 CHECKOUT Let Sporty’s save you time and money in your transition training with our comprehensive new G1000 Checkout Course.

  • Excellent.

    By flitetym
    I've been in this business for 40+ years, and I gotta tell 'ya, with the Private Pilot- Airplane series, it's nice to have a resource that "... you can come home to." For me, this has been a most pleasant review of techniques and things that needed "a little buff-and-polish", while not insulting my intelligence. The video and content are clean, crisp, to the point, and expertly produced to ensure the neophyte student's attention while keeping things interesting and informative for the "know-it-alls." This old, grizzled, ATP bald eagle likes what he sees and thinks it was indeed money well spent -- and at least as useful as those experiences from many late-night, Mag-Light, black coffee preflights. "The day you stop learning, is the day you start failing." Blue skies, Sportys. Job well done.
  • 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

    Great app
  • Video downloading is an exercise in frustration, hosed my iCloud backups

    By bdashnz
    For whatever reason the developers of this app store any videos downloaded for offline use in the app’s “documents” directory, meaning that they’ll be automatically be backed up to iCloud as part of iOS’s iCloud backup feature. This is not only a waste of iCloud storage space (I can download the videos again via the app if necessary), but in my case it prevented iOS from backing up altogether as uploading 6GB of instrument training videos over my slow DSL connection would take an eternity. I’m very lucky that nothing happened to my iPad in the weeks between downloading the videos and iOS notifying me of the lack of completed backups, as it very likely would have resulted in losing important data. Additionally, the offline download functionality is poorly implemented. Want to download all videos in a given section? The app will begin downloading all videos at once, leading to it taking an eternity for even a single video to complete. What’s more, if you switch away from the app for more than a moment or two, the video downloads are interrupted and you’ll need to manually start them again. And start again they will. Even if the video was 90% downloaded, an interrupted download will start over from scratch. This means that on all but the fastest connections you’re forced to sit and keep your device awake to let the download complete, lest you be forced to start the download over again.
  • Love the app-online sync

    By CessnaPilot987
    Great content, really easy to use app, and I love how all my progress is sync’d to the online app. I like going back and forth and this makes it simple to do that. Also appreciate how clean this app is on iPhone. Some apps seem to be mainly for iPad, but Pilot Training is rock solid on my iPhone 7.
  • Lots of great aviation training content all in one place.

    By joemammasPilot
    Got my written test endorsement without ever seeing a flight instructor.
  • Great but missing 1 thing

    By D-Scotts
    I would give this app 5 stars I love it but it can sync my progress between devices. If I watch a video on my tablet and then switch to my phone it doesn’t show it as done on my phone
  • Can't restore purchase

    By pilotsantasab
