I highly recommend Tim O’Connor’s course for anyone needing to pass the knowledge test for Sport Pilot, Gyroplane.

Plan B for me is to have my clients take the King’s Sport Pilot Airplane course and then spend a couple of hours managing the gyroplane specific stuff out of the Rotorcraft Flying Handbook. The cost ends up being more than Tim’s course.

You only need a 70% to pass but you will need to go over all the missed answers with your flight instructor before he can recommend you for your check ride.

I have several clients who took the course and they all passed the knowledge test with scores in the 90% range.

In my opinion Tim does a fine job of making the information more palatable.

David Gutierrez did well and took this picture at El Mirage Dry Lake.
