Ground School is the Foundation for Flying
Ground School is where dreams meet reality. Being prepared on the ground leads to productive successful flight in the air. Learning to fly by its nature is one-to-one. It’s typically just you and the instructor in the plane. A classroom styled ground school lets you meet other students, pilots, and instructors while covering all of the necessary theory. They’re all in the same boat as you are. Class discussions and study groups often lead to life long flying pals and stories. Ground Schools are based on cockpit ready usefulness. It is not a pass-the-written crash course. However, a natural outcome of a good ground school is being prepared for the written exam. Tap into your inner Orville and learn to fly.
