No matter your ultimate goal, if you want to learn to fly, you have to solo. For most pilots, soloing an airplane is even more memorable than earning their license. Now, Sporty’s Pilot Shop has made this milestone even easier by offering a DVD course that includes everything a pilot needs to fly solo — just add flight instructor.
“We know from the experience gained at our own flight school, if you get a student to solo, his chances of dropping out are virtually zero,” says Sporty’s Founder Hal Shevers. “This course will help student pilots make it to that milestone, whether they plan to continue on towards a license or simply solo.”
Because learning to fly can sometimes feel overwhelming, Sporty’s designed its new course to be simple and easy to use, company officials said. There is no software to install and no textbooks to study. Start with Volume 1 on your television, PC or Mac and continue to solo.
Sporty’s Solo Course includes six hours of video on three DVDs packed with real-world, in-flight footage that explains everything a new pilot needs to know for solo. Sporty’s 3D graphics and animations make complicated subjects easy to understand while interactive on-screen review questions mark your progress as you go, according to company officials.
“We are confident that this course will save student pilots time and money by focusing on what’s most important,” adds Shevers. “For less than the cost of one flight lesson, aspiring pilots will have an enjoyable and interactive course to guide them through each lesson.”
When a student pilot is ready to move on to earn a license, Sporty’s makes it easy. Each Solo Course includes a coupon for $65 (the full cost of the Solo Course) off its Complete Learn to Fly Course. Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course includes modular flight training options for Private, Sport or Recreational pilot. Plus, the modular structure of the Solo Course ensures that everything you learn is directly applied to your next Sporty’s course.
Sporty’s Solo Course [#D233A] is available for $65.
