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.

  • Do you offer a Veteran’s Discount?

    We sure do! Vets can get 10% off on any course or subscription when they send a copy of their military ID to info@flightapprentice.com

    We’re incredibly thankful for the service of all veterans, and for the mentorship we’ve received from so many active and former military pilots through the years.

  • 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.

  • Do you have an app?

    Yes, we have an iOS app for iPhone and iPad that can be download from the Apple App Store.

  • Can I cancel?

    Yes, you can cancel anytime from your account page.

  • What is your cancellation/refund policy?

    All courses and subscriptions have a two-week money back guarantee. We also refund payments made within the preceding three days of cancelling or downgrading a subscription.

  • 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!
