Private Pilot Ground School
Mondays & Thursdays, 6:00-9:00pm
March 25 through May 16, 2019

Learning to fly is fun!  But you do have to hit the books in order to learn the material that can't be covered in the cockpit. While you can certainly take care of your studying on your own, most people prefer to attend a classroom course. Not only will this ensure you cover all the material, but it will also provide the structure and organization to get you through the required material in an organized and timely manner.

The 8-week Private Pilot Ground School course will teach you everything you need to know to pass the FAA Sport or Private pilot written exams. Topics include airplane systems, aerodynamics, airport environments, proper communications and phraseology, meteorology, Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), aircraft performance, charts and navigation, and human factors.

This is an intense class that provides a great deal of information in a short timeframe. Think of it like a college-level course. Students should plan to spend an additional 3-6 hours/week studying outside of class.

This session starts on Monday, March 25 and runs through Thursday, May 16. Class will be held each Monday and Thursday evening from 6-9PM. 

The cost of the class is $300.00, due on the first day of class. An optional (but highly recommended!) Ground School Essentials Bundle is available for $199 + tax, and it contains all the materials and supplies you need to complete the ground school class. Reserve your bundle during registration and pay for it the first day of class.

Class space is limited, so don't wait to register!
