Rate your flight training experience


AOPA has opened its 2021 Flight Training Experience Survey to any student or pilot who has received instruction in the past year. The survey measures flight instructor and flight school performance on four key factors affecting flight training—educational quality, customer focus, community, and information sharing.

How does your flight instructor or flight school measure up? AOPA has streamlined the survey to make it quicker and easier to complete—less than 10 minutes! Your responses will identify and recognize the nation’s best training providers and provide valuable feedback on improving the flight training experience.

By participating in the Flight Training Survey, you’ll be eligible to enter to win one of 21 sweepstakes prizes valued from $100 to $360, including an opportunity to earn a 12-month membership in Sporty’s Platinum Flight Crew program with access to its full line of online pilot training courses.

It was his first airplane trip at age seven that made Eric decide to become a pilot. "While boarding the airplane, a flight attendant noticed my interest in the flight deck and urged me to go talk to the pilot. I give a lot of credit to that pilot for my career choice." He earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and went on to an airline career. Eric now heads Sporty’s flight school and directs the University of Cincinnati’s Professional Pilot Training Program. In addition, Eric serves as a Captain in Sporty’s corporate flight department.
