Product Description

Have you always dreamed of the adventure and freedom that comes when you learn to fly? This is the course that will make your dream to fly a reality.

No matter what your dreams are as a pilot, I am here to help you discover what a rewarding experience flying a trike can be. Let me help you reach this goal, with my one-of-a-kind course. I'll show you how fun and rewarding flying can be, and explain everything you need to know to fly a trike, whether it be a single-seat Ultralight (no license required) or two-seat Light-Sport Aircraft, LSA (Sport Pilot license required).

To earn your Sport Pilot license, you must pass two FAA tests: the knowledge (or written) test and the Practical Test or Checkride as many call it. The Checkride is an oral interview and a flight test with a FAA Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE). My Sport Pilot Training Course for Trike will not only help you pass both of these FAA tests, it will give you the real world knowledge you need after you earn your license to be a safe and knowledgeable pilot.

"I operate my own flight school, Sport Aviation Center, so I know your time and money are precious. That's why my course was developed to save you both. This is not a weekend cram course. It is a comprehensive home study companion to your flight training, and it will make your lessons more efficient, more fun and more complete. Just add a flight instructor!" - Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE (SPE, SPIE, PE)

The Training System follows a logically organized "Training Syllabus and Workbook" to guide you through all the training materials. You can do for integrated flight training/ground school or separate flight training or ground school options. It is designed to be flexible for all types of learning scenarios.

Paul's Recommendation

Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE


Paul Hamilton
Filmmaker, Flight Instructor, Author


  • For the Sport Pilot student enrolled in a guided weight-shift controlled aircraft trike pilot training program with an instructor.
  • For the self-guided trike student pilot who wants a complete program that outlines exactly what they need to learn before taking lessons with a trike Certified Flight Instructor (CFI)...saving them time and money.


A complete and comprehensive pilot training course with everything in one briefcase. Just add your local sectional map and local airport facilities guide and you're set. The syllabus is a pilot training "cookbook" with all the ingredients arranged in a logical step-by-step order through flight training and ground school. Includes all the books, DVD's, and CD's needed for a complete program...leaving nothing out.

This course guides the student on what to study and what not to study in the recommended FAA handbooks. The comprehensive flight training is presented in the most efficient manner for flight proficiency and safety. The ground school portion provides the aeronautical knowledge for operating procedures and regulations.

This kit includes all the training materials you will need to become a trike pilot.


This all inclusive course is typically the first item a guided or self-directed student pilot will purchase for a comprehensive "road map" outlining the other training materials required for a complete education in learning how to fly.

You could purchase all of these items individually as you progress through your grounds school, flight training, FAA exams and checkride, but, most students have found it much easier and more cost effective to purchase the complete course so they have the study materials at their fingertips when they need them.

This is THE only course that will get you through flight lessons, ground school, preparing for your FAA knowledge exam and checkride to get your pilot license. And many of the books and tools you will use throughout your flying career.


You can follow the guided course step-by-step with the assignments for each module directed your Flight Instructor or go through it at will for a self directed home study course.


Use of this pilot training course ensures that the student pilot has covered everything necessary, and in the most efficient manner, including flight proficiency and safety, aeronautical knowledge, operating procedures and regulations for flying a trike and obtaining a sport pilot license.

Use of the training course helps the student know the progress they've made toward learning to fly a trike, at what stage of learning the they are at, and what the next step is in the learning to fly.

I've also gotten positive feedback from student pilots who really like that everything they need is all in one kit and how much they appreciate the logical order the information is presented. They also appreciate knowing exactly where they're at in their flight training and ground school.

  1. Very well organized and comprehensive 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2014

    I have only been through about 1/3 of everything so far, but it seems to be very good. I have nothing to compare to it, so I can't say if anything else would be better for the money. If you know exactly what you need, you could consider buying just select items rather than the whole package. I'm satisfied so far. I will be flying with Paul soon. Hopefully, using his study material will give yield the best progress. If so, it is a money saver.

  2. Just received my Trike Pilot training package and so far it looks good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2014

    So far, so good. I've watched the video's and started reading some of the generic material.

    I thought it was a bit on the expensive side so I'm hoping it gets me through my testing with no problems.

    I really enjoyed the video's and in particular, the Weather To Fly video was most interesting.

    I will follow up with an additional review after completing the course work
