Sporty's courses go Android

Android users rejoice! Sporty’s Pilot Shop is rolling out its popular Learn to Fly courses on the platform, one of many recent updates to the course software.

The courses offer a slew of new features, including detailed analytics in the written exam test prep section, video search, and hyperlinked study resources. With these features students can go straight from study questions to the original source material, take tests tailored to their weak areas, and find out exactly how prepared they are for the written exam.

There are also a host of new tools for flight instructors. Instructors will be able to see where in the course the student is studying, assign homework remotely, and see test progress.

But the biggest advance is the availability on Android, a platform both new and current customers will automatically have access to. Although the Android version isn’t yet as feature-rich as the Apple or online versions, video can be streamed or downloaded for offline viewing, and more features are being added all the time.

Sporty’s Learn to Fly course and instrument course are each $199.99 for lifetime access across all available platforms.
