About the Course
This fully-online course prepares students for the Private Pilot Airplane written and oral exams, and contains a lot of practical, real-world knowledge. We present information in a way that allows pilots to begin applying knowledge right away, regardless of their experience level.
This course contains over 70 lecture videos, 200+ flashcard questions, section quizzes and dozens of handouts and study guides. It is organized into the following sections, which can be completed in any order.
- Pilot Qualifications
- Airport Operations
- Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs)
- ATC and Radio Procedures
- National Airspace System (NAS)
- Weather Products
- Navigation Systems
- Cross Country Planning
At the end of the course are 2 final exams which imitate the FAA Private Pilot Airplane written test. We've designed our material and tests to help you walk into your written test confident and prepared!
In a perfect world, every aspiring pilot would learn ground school information in the classroom from well-organized lectures. We think our virtual blackboard lessons are a close second. Each lesson starts from scratch, and lessons are to-the-point. No death-by-powerpoint, or mid-lecture marketing gimmicks. Your learning is our focus, and the material is organized accordingly.
Dozens of handouts and study guides to complement video-learning
These elegant handouts help students visualize difficult topics like the mechanics of raising landing gear, or chaining aerodynamic forces across an airfoil. Relevant handouts are included in each lesson and accessible any time in the Flight Bag, so that students can return to them any time they want.
From Our Pilots
"Thank you for explaining pressure altitude in a more simplified way! You keep it simple and it's really helping me SO much not to be overwhelmed."
"Flight Apprentice is amazing! It is simplifying everything... That will be where I’ll send my students."
"Both of these instructors deliver the sometimes difficult topics with an easy manner. They are pure professionals."
Andrew and Jake instructed together for several years, and they have very similar instruction philosophies. Both now bring their knowledge and skill from other flying careers to Flight Apprentice to give students a well-rounded education. They are passionate about helping students gain practical knowledge so that they can apply their skills as confident aviators.
