Course Descriptions

For all ground school courses, the maximum number of students in each class is limited to 30 students.  Flight lessons are normally limited to one student per instructor per flight.  Students must complete all clock hours for all courses.  If hours are missed due to illness or other reason, the hours must be made up in a one-on-one setting with the student’s instructor at the student’s additional expense.  Most 141 flight training is done at KOPF, while the ground school courses (except the flight instructor ground school courses) are all done at KHWO.
