Is this the right class for me?

What is Part 141?

Part 141 is an FAA-approved flight training program that follows a structured syllabus and requires a minimum number of ground and flight training hours. It is designed for a more regimented learning experience and is often preferred by students seeking a faster-paced and highly organized training environment.

Who is eligible?

Our Private Pilot Ground School is open to anyone who is 16 years of age or older and has a passion for aviation. Whether you're a high school student, a college student, or an adult seeking to explore the world of aviation, our comprehensive course offers the perfect starting point for your journey. No prior aviation experience is required – all you need is a curiosity for learning and a desire to take to the skies!

Do I have to participate in flight training?

No, it's not required to engage in flight training while you are enrolled in our Private Pilot Ground School. We've designed this course to be highly flexible to accommodate the varied schedules and needs of our students. You can choose to take it concurrently with flight training as a Part 141 student if that suits your plans, or you can complete it as a standalone course as a Part 61 student. This allows you to focus on mastering the theoretical knowledge first, which can then be applied in a practical context during your flight training.

What happens if I miss a class?

We understand that sometimes things come up. If you're a Part 141 student, it's important to attend all classes to meet the completion requirements. For Part 61 students, attending all classes helps ensure you receive the testing endorsement. If you miss a class, you can make it up with an instructor outside of regular class hours. Please note that there might be an additional cost for this. Just let us know and we'll help arrange it!

What materials do I need for this course?

For our Private Pilot Ground School, there are a few key materials you will need. These include a pilot logbook, a Sectional Plotter, and a mechanical or Electronic E-6B. Your logbook is crucial for tracking your progress throughout the course, while the Sectional Plotter and E-6B are essential tools for your navigation and flight planning studies. We also highly recommend obtaining a Green Bay Sectional Chart, as this will be beneficial in understanding real-world navigation scenarios during the course. While not mandatory, additional resources such as a current FAR/AIM and Jeppesen's "Guided Flight Discovery, Private Pilot" can provide a deeper understanding of the subjects covered. We're here to ensure you're well-equipped for your journey towards becoming a private pilot.
