Private Pilot Ground School

Get a jump start on getting your Private Pilot Certificate by attending our Private Pilot Ground School! Our 12-week group course covers the entire spectrum of aviation knowledge required by a Private Pilot, including an emphasis placed on preparing you for the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Test. Our Ground School combines interactive and fun styles while covering the required FAA knowledge that is augmented with experiences from the current world of General Aviation. We regularly provide bonus sessions that give students hands-on experience with topics such as radio communications, airplane systems, and weather analysis. 

Two classes to choose from:

– Tuesdays evenings 6:30pm to 9:00pm
– Sunday mornings 10:00am to 1:00pm

You can attend either or both classes, and you can choose freely between weeks. Students are not bound to only Tuesday or Sunday classes.
