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:
 
  • An oral exam conducted before you go flying
  • An in-flight test in which you demonstrate your skills in the aircraft
 

(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.)

 
Fixed-wing trikes
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!
 
  • Go from handshake to handshake with an actual FAA Examiner. Covers all you need, from the beginning of your oral exam to successful completion of the flight test. Your pass is guaranteed!
  • Enjoy the confidence of knowing the questions ... and the answers the FAA examiner wants to hear.
  • You'll learn from stunning in-flight footage and cockpit demonstrations of the maneuvers you need to know ... shot from three different camera angles for complete understanding.
  • Use your course on any mobile device or computer
  • Enjoy lifetime course access and free updates

John with FAA designated examiner Rusty Sachs

Excellent insight!
This course gives an inside look into what you can expect on your Sport Pilot checkride.  Going in with a clear understanding of the format, expectations, etc was a huge confidence boost for me, and helped me ace the checkride.  This course is a “must have” follow-on to the Sport Pilot Ground School.

It is a little less scary...
This course on the "check ride" took a lot of the mystery of what happens on a "check ride" away and at least gave an insight of what a pilot candidate testing could be. This course eased my anxiety and gave me information of practical use. Thank you

Sport Pilot Practical Test (Oral Exam & Flight Test)
Well done
I thought the practical test course was well thought out however I feel that a CFI or examiner would want me to remember key points in preparation of the checkride and for that I would like to have answered a series of questions similar to the knowledge course to help me commit to memory
