Sporty’s Private Pilot and Instrument Rating Courses are now accepted for FAA WINGS credit.
Earning FAA WINGS credit with Sporty’s Courses is easy and automatic for those enrolled in the Pilot Proficiency Program (enroll free at FAASafety.gov). After purchasing and viewing the video training segments, the pilot then completes two practice exams using Sporty’s online test preparation program included with the course. When these requirements have been met, users can click on the WINGS Credit option from the Sporty’s online test preparation program and credit is automatically provided through the FAA Safety system.
“FAA Wings acceptance means a pilot can not only use these courses for their initial training, but can earn enough knowledge credits to accomplish multiple phases of the WINGS program, which can satisfy flight review requirements. This WINGS participation could also make pilots eligible for savings on their aircraft insurance premiums,” says Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke.”
In addition to the Private Pilot and Instrument Rating Courses, other Sporty’s programs FAA WINGS accepted are Garmin G1000 Checkout; VFR Communications; Pilot’s Guide to Runway Safety; Airspace and Weather Format Review; Flight Review; and Instrument Proficiency Check.
Interested pilots may either purchase the DVD or video download at Sportys.com/courses.
