Private Pilot Ground School - Summer 2021

June 1 through July 22, 2021

Tuesdays 6p-9p & Thursdays 6p -9p

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 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 introduce you to everything you need to know to pass the FAA Private 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 June 1 and runs through July 22. Class will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9pm.

The cost of the class is $300.00. An optional (but highly recommended!) Ground School Essentials Bundle is available for the special price of $199 + tax and it contains all the materials and supplies you need to complete the ground school class. This bundle is normally $225.  Reserve your bundle during registration and pay for it the first day of class.

We look forward to finally holding classes in person! However, if the local Covid-19 guidelines change and we need to shift to online we will keep you updated via email. We are complying with all social distancing procedures and protocols which limits class size to ten people. So please register and secure your spot!

Please note: participants must be at least 15 years old at the start of class.
