Start your adventure - here's a sample of what awaits you:
COMPUTER BASED INSTRUCTION
In the air you'll learn in Cessnas - the best selling single-engine aircraft of all time.
On the ground you'll learn using our state-of-the-art Computer Based Instruction (CBI) program that uses fully interactive graphics and full motion video. CBI provides a better way to learn. No books to lug around, no hurrying to class, or no cramming before your written exam. You'll learn everything you need to know - not only to pass your exam, but also to be a knowledgeable, competent pilot. Study wherever you go. At home. At the office. Even while traveling.
You'll watch presentations by top aviation educators, see dramatic, enlightening in-flight footage, take interactive quizzes, learn interesting trivia, and prepare for upcoming lessons before you ever climb into the airplane. By integrating your ground training and flight training in this way, you'll be able to move more quickly to your goal of your private pilot's license.
OVERVIEW & REQUIREMENTS
Your training comprises two parts - flight training and ground school.
During your ground school, you'll learn bits of "book knowledge" you'll need to be a proficient pilot. You have several options for ground training, but the goal is to successfully complete your aviation written test.
Flight training takes place in the airplane. You'll learn the skills and gain experience to safely operate an airplane on your own - and pass your check ride.
