Spend less time studying and more time flying! This is the FAA Sport Pilot version of GroundSchool, our FAA knowledge (written) test preparation featuring up-to-date questions, free updates, and illustrated explanations written by a professional team of pilot examiners and instructors.

GroundSchool is fully compatible with FAA ACS (Airman Certification Standards) and our editorial team is working to keep it so as ACS continues to evolve.

Don't be fooled by imitators! Competing apps here in the AppStore use only the limited set of questions that the FAA publicly releases via its website - that is not enough to adequately prepare you for your test! Our GroundSchool app, on the other hand, features a much more comprehensive database (typically about 2-4 times the size of the demo FAA public one) of actual and current FAA questions that you likely can and will be asked on the actual test! This along with our detailed, professional explanations and easy to use interface are major reasons why pilots have come to trust GroundSchool.

Study actual, up-to-date FAA questions and then ACE your FAA Sport Pilot written test the easy way with GroundSchool FAA Knowledge Test Preparation software by Dauntless Aviation, the trusted leader in FAA written test preparation.


* Actual FAA Questions Current and Valid for Right Now. As soon as you install the software, use the 'update' feature and the software will connect to our servers, grab the latest questions, images, figures, and explanation content, and you'll be good to go.
* Detailed Explanations written by an experienced editorial team of examiner and instructor pilots.
* All Charts and Figures Included
* Several flexible study modes - fits the way you want to study!
* Compatible with all FAA "ground school" classroom-based courses

This Sport Pilot Instructor / Examiner version of GroundSchool will prepare you for any or all of the following tests:

* Sport Pilot General (SPG)

Ratings and Reviews

Best App


I had a hard time studying for the exam because I am not a good test taker. So when I took it failed with a score of 69! Yes I know it is a bad score and I didn't pass but that is when I found this app and this is the best app to get for sports pilot exam because Today i took the test again and scored a 90.

Excellent app


Great app.. Just like the real test. The explanations were surprisingly detailed. Much much better than any of the other test prep apps. I got a 98% using only this app, and I could have gotten 100% but I made a silly mistake. Our entire flight school loves these apps.

Figures Mismatch


It would be nice if the figures numbering would match the ones used in FAA Computer Testing Supplent for Sport Pilot. I've notified Dauntless several revisions ago but they apparently don't care about user input. Also, every time you go back to the menu you are taken to the very top instead of the previous menu which can get very annoying.
