Frequently we're asked
What about Ground School?
Most people choose a combination of self-study and our instructor assisted study.
We can offer one on one ground training for those that desire a little more guidance. Each pilot candidate gets individualized attention. We concentrate on those things you have not completely understood and relating the ground school information to inflight experiences. Your pre-flight and post-flight briefings will help you put the ground school information to practical use. What books or other materials will I need? Don’t worry about it. We will furnish everything you need (as well as some items that other schools expect you to purchase on your own).
