The HAMILTON PILOT TRAINING SYSTEM (HPTS) is for sport pilot students learning to fly all types of light-sport aircraft (LSA). Is is a comprehensive “learn to fly safely” program, not just something to get through the FAA tests.

Use as a self-directed home study program

A flight and ground training system, you can use the HPTS as a self directed ground school and what your CFI or CFIS will use to teach you to fly light sport aircraft. This can be for a sport or private pilot license (or certificate as the FAA terms it). It can be used initially as a home study course and/or used with a flight instructor from the start. It is designed to be used before you see an instructor and also to be used by an instructor during the ground and flight training.

The HPTS was developed by Sport Pilot industry leader, Paul Hamilton, CFI (FAA Certified Flight Instructor) and DPE (FAA Designated Pilot Examiner) to perform checkrides in light-sport aircraft as a SPE (Sport Pilot Examiner), as a SPIE (Sport Pilot Instructor Examiner) and a PE (Private Pilot Examiner).

Covers all three types of ground school

Different from other courses, HPTS is a comprehensive program because it covers all three types of ground school:

  • Knowledge test prep for the written exam (now computerized)
  • Aeronautical flight knowledge to become a safe and confident pilot (flight knowledge)
  • Checkride preparation to pass the FAA Practical test the first time

Hamilton Pilot Training System SyllabusThe training system uses a building block approach in becoming a safe and confident pilot, while balancing the enthusiasm and passion for flight. The Training Syllabus and workbook is the basis of the system. It provides a step by step process for the flight training and ground training.

Progress quicker and more efficiently

The self-guided home study course helps you prepare before you see an instructor so you progress quicker and more efficiently. A step-by-step process to learn all of the necessary tasks, aeronautical knowledge, and pilot skills. The kit ensures that FAA regulatory requirements are met. Ace your knowledge exam. Impress the examiner during your checkride with your thorough command of the information and confident piloting skills. This is the perfect solution for you whether you are a sport pilot applicant taking flight training courses at a smaller flight school or through a freelance instructor. The system is used by the top schools and instructors.
