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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss your project.”
For more information about MySolo, see the website.

Pilot Training and Certification,
New draft airman certification standards are available for review on the FAA’s website. In addition to releasing the draft standards, the FAA also announced that it would be deleting questions from the private pilot airplane knowledge test, effective Feb. 9.
A California charter school has teamed up with a glider school to give students a potentially life-changing opportunity.
Sporty’s has struck a chord with flight schools and others looking for an affordable, like-new aircraft.
