Ground School

 All Online Ground School Courses Feature...

Virtual Chalkboard

We start most lessons from a blank-slate. Students can watch concepts as they are developed. If a lesson is about carburetors, we'll draw the whole thing, piece by piece. This solidifies concepts in students' minds.


We supplement video-lessons with handouts, study guides and useful graphics to maximize learning and retention. Many handouts are also useful for quick-reference while studying.

Flashcard Questions

Flashcards are a very popular and useful method of learning. We've created hundreds of questions to assist students in making flashcards. With so much to learn, knowing where to start can be confusing. Our questions help students prioritize.


Graduation certificates are issued after a student completes a course. In the near future, these certificates will double as a valid written test endorsement.

Choose Your Pace

Courses are self-directed, and students can move as fast or slow as they'd like. Sections can be completed in any order, giving students and instructors flexibility.

Practice Tests

At the end of each section is a review quiz. At the end of the course, students can take practice tests designed to imitate the real FAA written exam. Our practice tests contain many of the same figures on the current written exam.

Virtual Blackboard

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.

Graphical Handouts

Dozens of handouts and study guides to complement video-learning

This traffic pattern guide is just one of many handouts included in our Private Pilot Ground School

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.


"The questions at the bottom of the videos are perfect. It's like questioning my student after I've just lectured."


"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."


"The user interface is excellent and the content is very solid."

This free course introduces student pilots to some of the foundational concepts. We have found that a basic understanding of these concepts early in flight training helps students advance quicker and have greater understand of what they are doing as they fly.
