Online Courses for Private, Instrument, Commercial, & Multi

Great ground school isn’t easy.

Aspiring pilots deserve an education that molds them into well-rounded aviators. We can’t make that easy, but we’ve made it possible.

Learn beyond the written.

We’ll help you ace your written exam. But that’s not our main focus: our #1 priority is long-term student success. That means helping you build the knowledge and mindset to make good decisions, learn from mistakes, and view flying with a simple “big picture” mindset.

Pass Your Written Test

We simplify theory and show you how to navigate the world of federal publications so that you know the art, science, and legalities of flying well beyond what’s required to pass the FAA written.

Visual Learning.

Some topics aren’t as “hands on”. From system schematics to anatomy, we’ve got you covered.

Blackboard Videos

Learn through a highly effective medium: the virtual blackboard. Plus the camera is never on our faces, because this isn’t about us. It’s about your learning.

Built Modern.

Our philosophy may be old school, but the experience isn’t. Seamlessly switch between desktop, mobile, and our iOS app.

Team Effort.

We know it takes a village. We’re a team of airline, corporate, and aerobatic pilots passionate about educating tomorrow’s aviators.

5 Sections

Student Pilot Fundamentals

This course introduces student pilots to the fundamental concepts of flight. We seek to provide a framework that students can use in their training and beyond. Topics covered include aerodynamics, fundamental maneuvers, and the training process.

14 Sections

Private Pilot

This course prepares you for the FAA Private Pilot Airplane written test, and also includes lots of information to prepare you for the oral exam and beyond. First and foremost, this course should help you graduate with a conceptual framework to use in your own flying journey—whether it’s a career flying jets or a rewarding hobby!

10 Sections

Instrument

Prepares students to take the Instrument-Airplane written exam and provides them with the knowledge to earn their instrument rating.

10 Sections

Commercial

This course prepares students to take the Commerical Airplane-SEL written exam and generally prepares them to earn their Commercial certificate.

4 Sections

Multi-Engine Course

Approach multi-engine flying like a professional! The multi-engine course is designed specifically for career-bound pilots who are quickly going to advance from a Piper Seminole or Cessna 310 to something 10x heavier and twice as complicated. We emphasize simplicity, developing mental models, and—like our other courses—aerodynamic understanding.

4 Sections

Tecnam P2006T

Learn how to safely operate the Tecnam P2006T light-twin! Prepare for an aircraft checkout, or a new certificate or rating using the Tecnam P2006T.

Joe

Student Pilot

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to start flying before I enroll?

No, you can start your ground training any time! Some folks even prefer to finish ground school before they begin flight lessons.

Is this course Part 141 approved?

No, we operate under Part 61. But we work closely with students at many 141 programs to supplement their coursework.

What if I need help?

Our courses are designed to make this easy! You can message your course instructor directly, or ask your classmates in the classroom forum. Our team is here for you.

Do you offer bulk rates?

Yes, on a case-by-case basis with partner instructors and flight schools. If you’re interested, reach out!

Is my device compatible?

Our program is compatible with all modern web-browsers including Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

How long does it take to complete?

The total time varies by program and by student. Generally, we encourage students to plan for 80 hours each for the Private and Instrument courses, and 40 hours for Commercial. But remember, it’s not a sprint 😉

How is Flight Apprentice different from other ground schools?

One word: simplicity. We use a virtual blackboard where we draw and explain as we go, and it means you get to really understand the topic because you’re watching it get built up from nothing!
