Is piloting in your future? Let an experienced, highly-qualified instructor guide you though the process.

This course is designed to personally and professionally guide you through the Private Pilot Ground School Exams which determine whether or not you should be recommended to the FAA to take the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Exam.  Exams #1-4 provide feedback to you and the instructor on material that needs additional emphasis.  They are not averaged or used to determine pass or fail for the ground school.  Exam # 5 is used to determine if you should be recommended to the FAA to take the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Exam. A score of at least 70% is required and there are 100 questions on exam # 5.
