Pass your FAA Oral Exam & Flight Test with ease!
This course shows you a real-world Sport Pilot Practical Test including both the oral and flight portions.

You'll learn on-screen exactly what the FAA wants you to demonstrate to earn your Sport Pilot rating. This course shows you a real-world Sport Pilot Practical Test including both the oral and flight portions.

What Your "Checkride" Will Be Like

Your Practical Test, commonly referred to as your Checkride, consists of two parts:

  • An oral exam conducted before you go flying
  • An in-flight test in which you demonstrate your skills in the aircraft

(Tip ... we recommend that you begin learning what you need for your Sport Pilot Flight Test & Oral Exam early in your flight training. It will make you more prepared and will probably even shorten the amount of time you'll need to master each maneuver.)

Fixed-wing trikes

Airplane, Trike or Powered Parachute—this course is for you!

Although you'll see a model checkride conducted in a fixed-wing Light Sport Aircraft (LSA), this course will still apply to you even if you plan to take your flight test in a trike or a powered parachute. Your oral exam will cover the same topics and you will be expected to exhibit the same level of knowledge. And during the in-flight portion of your test you'll be required to demonstrate many of the same maneuvers. You'll find the KING Sport Pilot Practical Test Course invaluable preparation ... and no matter what kind of LSA you'll take your flight test in ... you'll be prepared and confident—guaranteed!


Learn the maneuvers you need today!

  • Go from handshake to handshake with an actual FAA Examiner. Covers all you need, from the beginning of your oral exam to successful completion of the flight test. Your pass is guaranteed!
  • Enjoy the confidence of knowing the questions ... and the answers the FAA examiner wants to hear.
  • You'll learn from stunning in-flight footage and cockpit demonstrations of the maneuvers you need to know ... shot from three different camera angles for complete understanding.

Good Prep for the Test
Having never flown, the walk thru of a replica check ride and oral exam is reassuring and a great reference.



Well presented and very informative.
Well presented and very informative.



Very Good
Took for Trike. Most of the information was relevant and helpful. I do wish however that they provided some extra information specific for Trikes. I have enjoyed all the courses I have taken with Kings schools and glad I had. Also special thanks to Andrea the Rep at King. Thank you

Well done
I thought the practical test course was well thought out however I feel that a CFI or examiner would want me to remember key points in preparation of the checkride and for that I would like to have answered a series of questions similar to the knowledge course to help me commit to memory

I thought that this was an outstanding program. I am presently a student Sport Pilot, have passed my FAA Written, and am working my way towards soloing. This is excellent prep for both the solo and the Check Ride. I highly recommend this to anyone pursuing their Sport Pilot Certificate.



Superb teaching
