FAA Approved Part 141 and 61
Our Private Pilot Ground School will take you, a new student, from our front door to your destination on a cross-country trip as the pilot-in-command of a personal helicopter or airplane. The 8-week, 48-hour curriculum will ensure that you will have all the knowledge requirements established by the FAA to qualify you to pass the Private Pilot Written Exam.
Stage 1: Answer some basic questions. "What is a helicopter (or airplane)?" "What makes it fly?" "What limits an aircraft in flight?" and "How does a pilot control the aircraft in flight?"
Stage 2: We roll the aircraft out of the hanger and begin flying it in the real world of controlled and uncontrolled airspace.
Stage 3: Adds the elements of weather that can effect your decision to depart on a flight and determine whether a flight can be safely completed.
Stage 4: Basic cross-country navigation skills are introduced as you learn how to prepare and plan for your upcoming flight using charts and standard aircraft instruments.
Stage 5: We discuss your role and responsibility for planning and decision making before, during, and after your flight.
