Learning to fly is fun, challenging, and rewarding.

May is Learn to Fly Month at Sporty’s, a 31-day celebration of flight training designed to help new pilots achieve their aviation goals. In addition to savings on popular pilot gear, Sporty’s will launch a new YouTube video series, host a number of interactive webinars, post over two dozen articles, and even pay some FAA knowledge tests. 

Sporty’s has once again partnered with airshow pilot and flight instructor, Spencer Suderman, to create a new video series that will be available free on YouTube. Each video addresses common questions, including what to expect on a first flight lesson and how to make better landings.

In addition to these new videos, Sporty’s Media Network will publish a wide variety of articles here at Flight Training Central as well as Air Facts, iPad Pilot News, and Flight Sim Update. Pilots can also learn from four live webinars, hosted by industry experts like FAPA Chief Advisor Tim Genc and longtime pilot examiner Jason Blair. Sporty’s Pilot’s Discretion podcast will feature two episodes focused on learning to fly in May, with honest advice from veteran flight instructors. 

Limited time Learn to Fly Month specials will be available on a variety of products, including Sporty’s Pilot Training+. This all-inclusive membership unlocks Sporty’s complete library of award-winning video courses, so pilots can learn anywhere they have a phone, tablet, or laptop. Pilots will also be able to save on flight bags, kneeboards, and essential books. And pilots can brush up on their pattern work with Sporty’s Takeoffs and Landings Course, available free throughout the month beginning Monday, May 1.

Sporty’s also plans to help student pilots directly, by paying for 20 FAA knowledge tests. To enter, pilots simply share a picture with their written test results on social media and use the #LearnToFlyMonth hashtag to upload a photo.
