Sporty's helps student pilots capture that solo moment

January 13, 2014

With the proliferation of compact video cameras, pilots are more eager than ever to capture great moments such as the first solo—but often aren’t sure how to edit or share the video footage. A new service from Sporty’s video production team will take that footage and turn it into a professionally produced package that can be shared.

MySolo lets the pilot upload raw video that will be edited, then shared at Sporty’s MySolo YouTube channel. The pilot includes some additional information about the flight—name, date of flight, flight instructor, and make/model of aircraft. The finished product is about five minutes long.

The cost is $59.95. Preview a sample MySolo video here.

Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman said that while the service is producing videos about first solos, “we’re able to produce similar videos about any particular flight. Contact us at video@sportys.com and we can discuss your project.”
