  • Good Material

    By FiddlersCreek
    Used along with Sheppard Air and made 87 on the IFR. Like the Sporty’s content.
  • Above and beyond expectations

    By TeamJim!
    I am using the Sporty’s app for my instrument rating. The content is high quality and up to date. It has a great user interface and I like how the videos are broken down into easy to digest segments. The multiple types of test prep was extremely useful for preparing me for my instrument written which I got a 97% on. I will definitely use this app for my future ratings as well and I highly recommend it to others.
  • Even Better now

    By Mikejw58
    I used the older version for the pts standards and I scored a 93 on my written. Now with this later version it is so much better being able to cue the videos 15 sec forward and back. I just passed my BFR with the help of this. I used the older instrument course but my eyes started to glaze over from that content. But now with the cueing feature. I might be able to back up the videos often enough to make it sink in. I’ll be getting to work on that soon Thanks Sporty’s. Nice Update!
  • just okay- so far

    I downloaded this about 2 weeks ago and have completed about 1/2 of the course. I was following everything fine until about the 25% way through the program, I am guessing because it was fairly simple stuff. When things get more complicated they really rush through the charts and explanations and might cover 5 topics in a 8-10 minute video. It is almost like they are assuming that you are already exposed to a decent amount of the IFR language, charts and acronyms. I constantly find myself going back on the video to try to figure out what he is talking about. Personally, I feel that a 17 minute video with many new introductions is completely overwhelming. I am taking this course because I am a novice and do not know IFR and the charts. I also purchased the private pilot program 2 years ago and found it to be better and it didn't just whip through the explanations and terminology's. I am not impressed for the price they charged. Wish I had tried one of the cheaper ones first.
  • Awesome but...

    By ekeen89
    After the last update I cannot get the figures to load in some of the test questions.
  • 97% on my FAA written

    By Imfreakingboss12
    Overall great app, definitely worth the money! Easy to access interface, smooth video playback. I would say without a doubt it’s the best practice FAA test app on the market. If you have not done the written I highly recommend buying this app!
  • Color Blind May be Unable to Read Menus

    By wingnut0000
    The new IFR videos are great, but I am having trouble recognizing the menu items at the top of the page due to the poor color contrast. Please fix this.
  • Not working

    By MedicBear360
    The app is requiring me restore the purchase every time the app times out. In addition it’s making me redownload every video. Also I have several of the other private pilot and instrument apps and it’s not allowing an interface between accounts. Without repurchasing. Please fix.
  • Great Value

    By Travis Eng.
    Great preparation for the instrument written, as well as becoming acquainted with instrument flying!
