You'll learn on-screen exactly what the FAA wants you to demonstrate to earn your Sport Pilot rating. This course shows you a real-world Sport Pilot Practical Test including both the oral and flight portions.
What Your "Checkride" Will Be Like
Your Practical Test, commonly referred to as your Checkride, consists of two parts:
(Tip ... we recommend that you begin learning what you need for your Sport Pilot Flight Test & Oral Exam early in your flight training. It will make you more prepared and will probably even shorten the amount of time you'll need to master each maneuver.)
Your Best Values...
Airplane, Trike or Powered Parachute—this course is for you!
Although you'll see a model checkride conducted in a fixed-wing Light Sport Aircraft (LSA), this course will still apply to you even if you plan to take your flight test in a trike or a powered parachute. Your oral exam will cover the same topics and you will be expected to exhibit the same level of knowledge. And during the in-flight portion of your test you'll be required to demonstrate many of the same maneuvers. You'll find the KING Sport Pilot Practical Test Course invaluable preparation ... and no matter what kind of LSA you'll take your flight test in ... you'll be prepared and confident—guaranteed!
Learn the maneuvers you need today!
Filling the role of the Designated Examiner is Rusty Sachs, the Executive Director of the National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI), a Master CFI and an FAA-designated pilot examiner. John King gives a model performance as the applicant.
You'll Know What to Expect
From the oral to each maneuver—you'll come away totally confident. You'll understand the questions and the tasks. Best of all, you'll be confident you'll ace your FAA Sport Pilot Practical Test because you've been through it all before.
