Sporty's Pilot Shop has offered training courses for over 20 years, beginning with VHS tapes and then DVD and online training products.

Get out your iPad and connect to WiFi - it's time to update your digital charts in the ForeFlight app. The new cycle starts Thursday, March 8th, and will be valid for 28 - 56 days depending on chart type.
