Private Pilot Ground School


Join us in a comfortable surrounding with fellow aviators and study for your FAA knowledge test. Classes can be joined at any time, the material is presented in chapter sequences. A very experienced flight instructor will present the material so you can pass your test the first time, and with a high score.
Twice Weekly Ground School in Van Nuys:
We recognize that for some students, studying on their own is not sufficient. We support you by offering a twice weekly (Tuesday and Thursday) ground school session to fill in this gap. Classes can be joined at any time, since the material is taught in chapter sequences.
Classroom hours: Classes usually start at 7:00 pm, so we suggest arriving at 6:45 pm to be prepared.

Additional Course Items:
We strongly recommend the self study CD course as a low cost but very effective study aid. If you are our flight student you already have this as part of your book package.
Terms and conditions: Course book (currently $19.95) not included, if you own our book package you already have this. The charge for the actual computer test is not included (currently apx. $150)

From 'zero time' to aviator
If flying an airplane is your dream, stop dreaming and start flying! Take that important first step and find out what it takes to make this dream come true.
IFR: Instrument Rating

Ready to go to work?
A commercial pilot certificate is required to be able to fly for compensation. Flight Instructors, Banner-Tow, Agricultural Spraying and traffic watch are examples of commercial flying activity.
MEL: Multiengine Rating
Twin engine add on
To be able to fly aircraft with more than one engine, you need to add a multiengine rating to your existing pilot certificate.
