Sport aviation is growing rapidly. But the new sport pilot / light-sport aircraft rules are still a mystery to many flight schools and instructors. To locate a flight school offering sport pilot training and/or light-sport aircraft rentals, click on the "Flight School And Rental Finder" tab above. This is a great place to share ideas on learning to fly, flight schools, costs and anything else related to training.
I tried to use Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge and Airplane Flying Handbook and found them far too general to be useful for Sport Pilot Knowledge Test prep, although they do provide a solid overall aviation information base. The first time I prepped for the test, I used King Schools test prep, 95%. This September I had to take the test again, used Sportys Online test prep, scored 93%.
I skimmed through the other materials but have been concentrating on the Knowledge Test Pep manual. I WILL thoroughly read all the materials once the written test hurdle is passed and of course as part of my formal flight training syllabus.
No doubt there's merit in that approach as well. I know it while be while before I am able to begin flight instruction ($$$ have to be saved up) so I'll have plenty of time to cover all the Gleim printed materials.

The PHAK and AFH were never intended to serve as knowledge test prep materials, so much as background reading to reinforce flight instruction.
