By taking and successfully completing this course, you will be eligible to receive a Sport Pilot Student Certificate from Gleim, which is required before flying an aircraft without an instructor on board.

I would like to take this opportunity to say your online ground school was the best preparation for the FAA test I have seen on the market. I liked all the repetition, the study mode, and stage tests, and the large question database (other products have a much more limited database). I also purchased a hardcopy of your Sport Pilot Maneuvers and I think the combination of the two is the best organized, most comprehensive, and well thought out reference I have seen. At first, I loved all the DVD’s out there and shunned the "plainness" of the Gleim resources, but now I really appreciate that simplicity! You get right down to business in the most efficient way possible. I have learned that I can really trust that Gleim has got all the regs and knowledge covered!

The aviation training consultant was brilliant in helping me understand the Online Sport Pilot course and its benefits. He even helped me practice some of my phonetic alphabet while placing my order! He was the last aviation expert in the office at the late hour and I was the winner for that. Gleim has a top notch sales team there. They are a major asset to your stellar company.

Overall, this is a great course. It actually exceeded my expectations in providing practical, usable material. It also gives a great introductory overview to information that can be difficult to keep organized, that is, without this kind of course.

I was surprised at how much of this I all ready due (just not as formal) at work and while flying my R/C helicopters.

I feel better prepared to proceed with the rest of the courses now. Along with learning some new items, this was good practice for using the rest of the on-line courses included with the sport pilot kit.

Course Elements

Each study unit contains an outlined reference guide as explained below.
  • 5-15 minutes audiovisual presentation
  • 10 thought-provoking true/false study questions
  • 5-15 pages of knowledge transfer outline
  • A 10-question multiple-choice quiz
To complete a study unit, you must:
  • Answer 10 thought-provoking true/false study questions.
    You will receive answer explanations that indicate why you answered the questions correctly or incorrectly. The true/false study questions are intended to help you to begin thinking about and studying the subject matter of the study unit. They also allow you to evaluate how much you already know about the concepts. Your performance on this section does not affect whether you pass the study unit or complete the course.
  • Print and study the knowledge transfer outline for the study unit.
    The outlines are divided into sections called "subunits" to make studying them easier. You can use the print function on your browser to print the outline by clicking "Print" under the "File" Menu. Use your printout of the knowledge transfer outlines for future reference. When you have finished studying the outlines, you will be ready to take the multiple-choice quiz.
  • Pass the multiple-choice quiz with a score of 70% or better.
    You will be presented with 10 multiple-choice questions based on the material you covered in the outline section of the study unit. You may move back and forth between questions and change your answers, but once you choose to grade the quiz, you will not be allowed to return to the questions. When you have answered each of the 10 multiple-choice questions to your satisfaction, click the "Grade" button at the bottom of the screen below the last question. Once you obtain a passing score, a review session will provide you with answer explanations for the multiple-choice questions that you answered incorrectly.

Frequently Asked Questions about SPSCC

  • Can I take the study units in any order?
    Yes, but once you start a study unit, you have to complete that study unit before continuing.
  • Can I skip the true/false part since the score doesn't count?
    No. SPSCC is set up so that you have to take the true/false questions. The true/false questions are there to help you pass by focusing on areas you need to improve.
  • What happens if I fail a quiz?
    Failing a test twice in a row causes you to be locked out. You must then contact Gleim for further directions.
  • What happens if I have computer problems and am unable to complete the course?
    The computer requirements for taking this course are minimal and can be done at just about any computer with Internet access. If anything goes wrong, you can email us at support@gleim.com or call (800) 874-5346 for help.
  • What requirements do I need to satisfy in order to pass the course?
    Each of 6 study units ends with a 10-question multiple-choice quiz. You must pass each of the end-of-study-unit multiple-choice quizzes with a score of 70% or better. Print your graduation certificate, and you're done with the course.
  • What if I have a question or need to speak to someone?
    We're available at support@gleim.com or (800) 874-5346. You can give us feedback about your experience with the course or ask questions if you like.

Course Completion Instructions

This document has been prepared to explain the steps you will need to take after successfully completing this course in order to be issued a student pilot certificate. The instructions are divided into two sections - AT HOME and AT GLEIM. It is very important that you complete all of the AT HOME requirements before arriving at the Gleim building because we will NOT be able to process your student pilot certificate unless ALL steps have been completed by you prior to arrival.

Part One: at Home

  1. Register for a user account at the Integrated Airmen Certification and Rating Application (IACRA) website: https://iacra.faa.gov/iacra/.
    • Click the "Register" link in the navbar on the left side of the page.
    • Select "Applicant" and click the "Next" button.
    • Continue the registration process by filling in the required information.
      1. You may wish to complete online training. Visit http://iacratraining.faa.gov/ to create sample accounts through the IACRA system.
      2. You may contact the IACRA help desk via telephone at 1-866-285-4942.
    • Do not contact Gleim Technical Support with any issues related to the IACRA system because we do not have the ability to assist you with the functionality of the IACRA system.
  2. Write down your FAA Tracking Number (FTN), username, and password. You must have each piece of information every time you log into IACRA. We will also need this information to process your student pilot certificate when you arrive at Gleim.
    • This is incredibly important. Do NOT lose or forget your FTN, username, and password as this will seriously lengthen the amount of time the certification process will take.
  3. Fill out an electronic FAA Form 8710-11, Airmen Certificate and/or Rating Application - Sport Pilot, from the IACRA website.
  4. Before coming to Gleim, gather the following documentation:
    • Driver's License
    • SPSCC Graduation Certificate
    • Original or notarized copy of your government-issued Birth Certificate
    • FAA Tracking Number (FTN)
  5. Call Gleim at 1-800-874-5346 x113 and set up an appointment to come into the office to process your student pilot certificate.

Part Two: at Gleim

  1. Before coming to Gleim, be sure you have ALL of the documentation requirements expressed in item 4 from the AT HOME section.
  2. Arrive at Gleim no later than your scheduled appointment time.
  3. We will make a copy of your driver's license and birth certificate, take your course graduation certificate, and make a digital photo of you for your airman file.
  4. You must sign a statement that you are fluent in the English language and that, to the best of your knowledge, you are in good physical health.
  5. We will review your 8710-11 application with you to ensure it is filled out correctly.
    • In order to do this we MUST have your FAA Tracking Number (FTN).
  6. Both you and the Gleim representative will electronically sign your 8710-11 application.
  7. Gleim will print a temporary student pilot certificate for you that you must physically sign.
  8. At this point the process is complete and your permanent certificate will be mailed to you within 7-10 business days.

If you have any question regarding this procedure, please contact our Technical Support department as indicated below. Thank you, have a great day, and fly safely!
