There are two types of training materials — “Test Prep” and “Learn to Fly”.

Test prep

Test preparation materials focus on the specific requirements to pass the two FAA tests:

  • FAA Knowledge Test– Passing the written (now computerized) knowledge multiple choice test.
  • FAA Practical Test (checkride)– Demonstrating to an FAA examiner that you can perform the tasks laid out in the FAA’s weight-shift control trike Practical Test Standards.

The prepware also provides the instructor recommendation/endorsement needed to take the knowledge exam at an FAA testing facility.

The SPORT PILOT KNOWLEDGE & PRACTICAL TEST PREP COURSE also provides three tools for passing the practical test (checkride). The ASA PRACTICAL TEST STANDARDS, SPORT PILOT, which is the FAA publication providing the requirements or “questions” for the checkride. The SPORT PILOT & CFI APPLICANT CHECKRIDE book, which provides the typically asked questions for each requirement plus the “answers” to the questions and the references for the answers. The SPORT PILOT & CFI APPLICANT CHECKRIDE DVD shows what it is like to go through a checkride. What an examiner is thinking, how to fail a checkride and what to do to make sure you pass the checkride the first time.

Learn to fly


Learning to fly a weight-shift control trike light-sport aircraft (LSA) is a combination of ground training and flight training.larger-course

The core of the SPORT PILOT STUDENT COURSE, TRIKE is a syllabus in which the pilot training is accomplished in a logical and efficient sequence so that all of the requirements for sport pilot training are completed and properly documented. This information is typically presented in an outline format with lesson-by-lesson coverage.

The training syllabus refers to other training materials such as books, DVD, and CDs to study for the ground and flight training to be completed in the most efficient order. The SPORT PILOT STUDENT COURSE, TRIKE is a combination of the “learn to fly” training materials and the “test prep” kit, plus additional pilot materials such as flight computer and plotter.
