Sporty's Study Buddy will prepare you for the FAA 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. • STUDY QUESTIONS BY TOPIC • 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 Private Pilot certificate • REVIEW QUESTION FLASHCARDS • 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! • TAKE PRACTICE TESTS • Test mode randomly generates a 60-question session from the entire database of published FAA test questions, simulating the real Private 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. •PROGRESS REPORTS• 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.



  • 92% on written exam within 2 weeks

    This app is amazing. I finished the ASA Test Prep 2018 book 2 weeks ago but still didn't feel prepared to take the written so I downloaded this app thinking it would help. I took 2 exams a day for 2 weeks and used the flashcard portion throughout the day. Within that time, I went from averaging a 72% on the practice tests to over 90%. I took the written exam today and got a 92%. This is a great tool!
  • Better than anything else

    By Braden Duke
    I love how I could study without internet access off the network. I studied all the questions in and out. Definitely recommend buying.
  • Awesome study tool

    By Steb 345
    This is the reason I got a 95 on my written exam. I rarely ever purchase apps, but this one was worth all the money! Don’t be a this study tool!
  • Not updated for X and occasional crashes

  • Use this app!

    By Sambo Slyce
    Used this app in conjunction with the ASA private pilot test prep and got a 90%. I would recommend this to everyone who plans on getting their license!
  • Great App

    By csmith401
    Used this, as well as a Gleim textbook as a secondary study tool. I'll credit this app to the reason I passed with a high score. A solid 2 weeks, 3 hours a day I used this app. The real test took me 40 minutes and a majority of the questions were the same you'd see on this app. Using the Instrument version now. Would highly recommend to anyone.
  • Great app!

    I used this app along with many other study sources. This app was my #1 study resource. Because of this app, I scored a 97% on my written test. On the actual written test itself, I only found one question that I wasn't familiar with. Some recommendations/notes I would advice everyone is to check if the figures in the app match your actual figures book, as the figures book in the app did not match the current figures book. Lots of questions are repeated in the section, which isn't a big complaint for me because it helped me remember the question, but could be annoying for other people. If you want to be like me and score a 97% (or greater), I really recommend buying this app! Make sure you study EVERYTHING!
  • Not many questions to look at.

    By Teku13
    There are not nearly as many questions as the ASA prepware book has. Also no ability to search for specific questions. Waste of $10.
  • Great Prep

    By GaryRudolph
    I used this to pass my written and it helped a lot. I had used a different online school but I needed something that can work without a connection and this helped. Only recommendations are: * Wish we had more sample test questions from the FAA. I did notice that one question from the FAA sample test is not in the study test (REIM GPS question) * Wish progress and reviews worked across devices with iCloud
  • Great app
