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

Sport Pilot Practical Test (Checkride) Prep
incredibly helpful
I've watched this series of videos several times in preparation for my Sport Pilot check ride. Watching John answer a wide variety of questions and respond to Rusty's test scenarios is so helpful. They bring the test environment to life and take some of the fear out of the equation. Hopefully, it will pay off when I take my check ride.
