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.



  • Excellent Tool!!

    By Brooke Twomey
    Just got a 98% on my written. I used the Jeppeson study guide and after that exclusively studied with this app. It was so similar to the actual test! It was nice for me to have the study guide as well so I had a hard copy of the testing supplements. I’m a new mom and has to study as efficiently as possible (during nap time) and this was just perfect. Thank you Sporty’s! I’d recommend to anybody! To those still studying: remember that you have to match the map scale in the supplements and not your actual plotter! I didn’t know that when I started out and got very frustrated!
  • Great prep tool

    By BlueArmada007
    Scored 98% in my written and this app was a major portion of my prep. Do not use this app as your primary resource, but once you’ve read your material, this app makes for a quick refresh.
  • Excellent

    First attempt to take the ppl written exam I used a textbook and the faraim but got a 58% on my second attempt I used this app and got an 85% definitely recommend
  • I passed the test and this saved me major time

    You can read the book. You can go through and memorize some 800 questions. Or you can get this and go much faster plus learn more effectively. More importantly, it trains you to pass. Great app.
  • Passed test!!

    By dillon242
    I failed the written exam the first time I took it then came across this app...I did countless amounts of practice tests and got over an 80% on all of them, then finally scheduled to retake the written exam...and passed it with a very good grade...I highly recommend this to anyone trying to pass the private pilot written exam!!
  • Test mode crashing

    By Rios_752
    Overall great app but the reason I’m giving it one star is because in the test mode I’ve had the app crash on several occasions. Nothing more frustrating than almost completing a test and losing all you progress.
  • All you need for the PPL written

    By M.Engineer
    I read the FAA’s free PDFs of the PHAK and AFH during my flight training, then used this app to get a 93 on the written. It was almost completely spot on. I wish I knew if I could do the same for the instrument written with the instrument flying handbook and instrument procedures handbook, or if the instrument test prep app was included in a bundle.
  • Exactly what my aging brain needed to ace the exam

    By Beach house friends
    After many months of study, got a 95 on the exam today. Did about 100 practice random exams and the approach really drilled in the key concepts.
  • Great Test Prep Tool!

    By Lastnite7
    Just took my written and scored a 95%! Easy to use! The best thing about it was that it had the question on the top when you went to use the chart or figure so you didn’t have to go back and forth looking at the question. Save function was okay, but if you didn’t answer a question it took you back to the beginning of the test. Really a pain when you are going through all 800+ questions. Overall I would recommend this over ASA’s app. Thanks Sporty’s!
  • Loved it, thank you

    By DFWavgeek
    I used this to help with my Test and id highly recommend it! The ability to take tests anywhere that have detailed explanations too all questions on your phone is highly useful and in my experience was a huge contribution to me passing with a 92.
