Additional Updates to Sporty's Learn to Fly Course Provide More Opportunities for EAA Young Eagles
June 24, 2021 — EAA continues to encourage Young Eagles to take the next step in their aviation journey by enrolling in Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course, which now has new technology and mobile usage updates.
Sporty’s has been a longtime partner with EAA and the Young Eagles program, and has offered the Learn to Fly course to Young Eagles free of charge for a best experience when it comes to flight training resources.
The Sporty’s Learn to Fly course has been completely redesigned to make it much faster and easier to use, while being entirely mobile-friendly. This course now has easier-to-access menus on different screen sizes, and videos automatically stream at the highest quality.
“These additional updates to the Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course build on the positive experiences of over 80,000 students who have already registered for the course,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programming. “With these updates we hope to continue to provide even more opportunities for Young Eagles.”
The Sporty’s Learn to Fly course is now more versatile for youth by upgrading knowledge test prep tools, so that pilots can build their own study sessions and track their performances by category. This course goes beyond airplane flight training and now includes a detailed lesson guide for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The updated technology and software was developed by flight instructors at Sporty’s Academy and includes tips for getting started, simulator training flights, complete with objectives and scenarios, tasks to accomplish, and performance goals to further enhance simulator flying experiences.
