Ground School


Ground school teaches you aviation fundamentals, and prepares you for the FAA written test. Student pilots training for the Private rating have three ground school options. You will still need to spend time on the ground with your CFI covering more advanced subjects.


Self-Study Book

If you prefer, you can simply use a Gleim Knowledge Test book to self-study for the required Knowledge Test.  Once you’ve studied the book, then you can take one of the Free Practice Exams listed below in order to assure us that you can pass the Knowledge Test.  Once your instructor is satisfied that you have the knowledge to pass the test, he/she will provide you with the required instructor sign-off.
