Holiday Ornament

Sporty's holiday ornament is an annual tradition for pilots, flight schools, FBOs and aviation enthusiasts. The Van's RV-12 is the star of this year's etched crystal ornament. It's also the 2014 Sporty's sweepstakes airplane. The package includes a bright red ribbon for hanging and is boxed for gift giving. Visit

The Complete Advanced Pilot

In the fifth edition of The Complete Advanced Pilot, Bob Gardner weaves together experience and practical information while using the FAA instrument rating and commercial knowledge exams as the foundation for learning. This book prepares students for the exams, and it also provides them with an operational understanding of flight they can take to the cockpit as newly minted commercial pilots operating under instrument flight rules. Each chapter concludes with sample FAA test questions, and a comprehensive glossary and index are included, as well as useful aviation website links. Visit

Organize Your Cockpit

Sporty's Pilot Pocket solves the problem as to where to stow small items such as a Bluetooth GPS or your cell phone in the cockpit. It secures to any smooth plastic or glass window surface with its three-suction-cup design. Each suction cup has a pull-off tab, making it easy to detach and reattach, which is great for airplane renters. Precision-cut openings on the bottom and both sides of the Pilot Pocket allow for connecting power cables and chargers to your portable devices. It's constructed of high-quality transparent acrylic that's resistant to scratches and won't discolor in sunlight. The Pilot Pocket measures 3.75x5x1.25 inches. The Pilot Pocket PLUS measures 4x6x1.25 inches. Visit
