Perfect for power pilots who want to discover the joy of soaring--or for beginning glider students--this new video shows you “what you should know” about flying gliders. Bob Wander, noted glider instructor and best-selling author, joins the Sporty’s Academy team to take you into the cockpit of several training gliders. With exciting in-flight footage, you’ll see all the maneuvers from inside and outside the aircraft, and you’ll ride along for a self-powered launch, an aero-tow and a winch launch. Also covers aerodynamics, stalls, spins, speed-to-fly, spirals, all training maneuvers, soaring weather (including ridge, wave, convergence and thermal soaring) and much more. State of the art 3D graphics and animations are used throughout to explain complicated subjects. This comprehensive program will prepare you for your FAA glider checkride and beyond. (1 hr. 38 min.)
One of the most exciting, useful and just plain fun ratings a pilot can obtain, the multiengine rating, is also one of the most challenging. Let Sporty’s guide you through each step of the rating, from basic aerodynamics to flight maneuvers. Throughout, exciting in-flight footage, from both inside and outside the cockpit, combines with state-of-the-art 3D graphics to explain every element of multiengine flying.

Staying Ahead of the Airplane
If there's one thing we've learned about aviation education, it's that learning never stops – whether you are a student pilot or an ATP. Sporty's Air Facts® DVD Video Series addresses this fact with host Richard L. Collins, a renowned aviation journalist with thousands of hours of experience in a variety of general aviation aircraft. In each program, Collins presents the knowledge and ingenuity acquired through years of real-world flying and teaches you how to apply the same veteran skills and hard-learned techniques. 35 informative programs on 9 DVD's teach you to manage the risks of flight and increase the safety factor in whatever type flying you do. So keep learning! You'll end up a better, smoother, SAFER pilot regardless of the certificates you hold.

Designed with pilots in mind, the extended life carbon monoxide detector can identify carbon monoxide for a minimum of 18 months. A magnetic adhesive back allows this detector to be placed almost anywhere. A green spot indicates the presence of carbon monoxide. If the spot turns dark blue, the concentration is high enough to cause serious physical effects. When exposed to fresh air, the spot will eventually turn back to yellow. Measures 3” x 2”. Made in USA.
Warn line technicians and pilots not to tow your aircraft without removing gust lock from inside aircraft. This streamer helps prevent possible structural damage which can be caused by towing. High visibility red streamer measures 12"l x 2"w. Brass grommet provides an attachment point for carabiner, velcro, rope, etc.
Easy to apply—just “slap on” and they stay put. Use it over and over just by peeling off and slapping on again. Dark green shade measures 22cm x 14cm. Designed to prevent hazardous glare and blind spots caused by the sun. Better than a factory sun visor because you can see through it. Great for your car, too.
