Instruction Philosophy

We created our online ground school with one goal in mind: create better pilots. Our program will certainly prepare you to take the FAA written exam, but it will do a lot more than that! Our course content, from lecture videos to handouts to study guides, are designed with application in mind: We want students to be able to take these lessons with them into the real world as they grow into confident and competent pilots.

Lecture videos are the backbone of our ground school program. It's direct and packed full of content. No death-by-powerpoint, or mid-lecture marketing gimmicks. Your learning is our focus, and the material is organized accordingly.
