Sporty's Study Buddy will prepare you for the FAA Sport Pilot written test like no other study tool available with three modes of operation. Test material is expertly organized into categories based on subject matter and includes, questions, answers, correct answers, and detailed explanations.


Learning Mode allows you to create custom review sessions by selecting exactly which categories you want to review. Each session randomly generates the question order, and provides instant feedback based on your answer selection. Each question also provides a detailed description as to why each answer is right or wrong. These explanations were developed by Sporty’s team of Master CFI’s, based on their experience preparing students for the Recreational Pilot certificate


Flashcard mode tests your knowledge by allowing you to only see the question without the answer choices. After answering the question mentally, you can then select to show the correct answer, and self-grade your progress along the way. This is a great feature that keeps you from being distracted by incorrect answers!


Test mode randomly generates a 40-question session from the entire database of published FAA test questions, simulating the real Sport Pilot test. After answering all the questions, you’ll be given instant results, and have the option to review either all the questions, or just missed questions. Included in the review session are the same detailed explanations for why each answer is right or wrong.


After completing each test your results are saved in the app's Progress Report section, where you can review previous scores and and a detailed history of each question and answer selection. You can also pause a partially-completed session, and resume it at a later time here.

Includes the new upgraded test prep supplement (figures and legends) from the FAA, with new high-resolution images. This new supplement became effective February 10, 2014 and was updated in 2016.

Gone flying

I liked this app. Did Kings class but didn’t take the knowledge test for six months. I used this as a test review. Learn some new things no covered in King. Redoing the questions I got wrong by the 3rd time I felt confident and got an 85 on my test

Great product

The Sportys app was the only app I used to study for my sport pilot test and prepared me well for the exam. I was skeptical with the low cost of this app but the interface was very user-friendly and the results are self-evident. Using only this app I received a 95% on my FAA test yesterday. Sport is delivers another quality app, would definitely recommend.

Poor quality control

I was answering flash card questions for only 10 minutes and already found 2 questions with answers that had no relation to the questions asked! I expect better from Sporty's. You're not getting just one star because it's a good interface.
