Sporty’s has updated and expanded its Flight Review Course, adding new content focused on flight proficiency and stick and rudder skills.
The addition of flight maneuvers training, featuring step-by-step instructions, helps pilots prepare for the flight portion of their next flight review and also makes a great review for anyone who hasn’t flown recently, Sporty’s officials said.
“We know that many pilots’ flight time has been limited lately,” said Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke. “We believe this updated course is a valuable resource for staying current and preparing for a summer filled with flying.”
A number of new video segments have been added, including tips on using the Graphical Forecast for Aviation, a review of the latest requirements for ADS-B transponders, a detailed look at crosswind landings, tips on how to recover from less than perfect landings, and practical advice for better slow flight and stalls.
These combine with existing segments like flying with iPads in the cockpit, flying under BasicMed, ADS-B weather, and runway safety.
The course includes more than two and a half hours of video and animations, plus an interactive review quiz and a document library.
Under new FAA regulations, some pilots are able to extend their flight review expiration for up to three months, in part by completing three FAA safety courses. Many of Sporty’s courses, including Flight Review, are accepted by the FAA for WINGS credit, company officials note.
Sporty’s Flight Review Course is available for $39.99.
