Private Pilot Ground School

In this class you will learn all the information necessary to pass the FAA Private Pilot Written exam. Just like when you got your driver's license, a Private Pilot Certificate requires you passing both a written exam and a in-flight practical exam. Topics include learning about the parts of an airplane, how they fly, aviation weather, calculating performance, aero-medical factors, and navigation. Even if you're not looking to certificated as a pilot and just want to learn more about aviation, this is a great first class to take!
Next Private Class Convening: January 5, 2015 Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00pm - 8:30pm


Instrument Rating Ground School

In this class you will learn all the information necessary to pass the FAA written exam for the Instrument Rating. This class will focus on flight instrument systems, attitude instrument flying techniques, obtaining clearances from air traffic control, and understanding the various charts and procedures related to the departure, en-route, arrival, and approach segments of a flight conducted under instrument flight rules. Even if you're instrument rated, but it's been a long time since you've been current or just want a great refresher, then this class will be of great benefit to you!
Next Instrument Class Convening: Tentatively January 6, 2015 Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00pm - 8:30pm
