Training videos ??

Asked by: 1696 views Student Pilot

I have seen advertisements for the Sporty's Learn to Fly course. They look great, but I am wondering if they are worth the 200 dollars they are asking. Has anyone else found these videos beneficial? How do they rate compared to the King videos? Just wondering. Thanks.

    In my opinion, the King video’s, or the Cessna course, is a lot better.
    again this just my opinion.
    before you invest the $$$ watch some short videos on you tube.
    this way you’ll make an educated decision.
    good luck.

    I like Sporty’s a lot. Definitely worth the investment. I think King Schools is great, although I’m not as familiar with them. It’s a lot cheaper than payer an instructor for all that ground school either way. Time vs. money, you can learn what you need via the PHAK, AFH, ACs, AOPA courses, etc, while paying almost nothing, but the organized training will save you a great deal of time and make sure there aren’t large gaps in your training and understanding.

    Hey Luke
    You Could Always take a peak at the awesome alternative we provide.
    Here is a link to our youtube channel:


    There are plenty of videos that go over most difficult aviation concepts. They are taken directly from our courses (but obviously they aren’t interactive on youtube)
    If you like what you see and the way we teach, you might consider purchasing our full courses at passfaaexams.com

    Our courses are cheaper and most of our customers wish they had come to us before spending their money elsewhere.

    Cheers Lucas
