Private Pilot Ground School
September 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$320
The Morey Airplane Company ground school is designed to provide an enjoyable learning experience while covering the subjects necessary to pass the FAA Knowledge Exam for the respective rating. Lecture time is kept to a minimum to enable maximum participation by attendees in individual and team activity, accomplishing actual tasks encountered as pilots.
The emphasis is on safe piloting rather than examination preparation. While our instructors do an excellent job covering the required knowledge topics, they also teach for real-world situations.
Nonetheless, participants will be examined on all the materials that they will encounter on the knowledge test. Course time is logged as ground school and may be applied to the appropriate rating. Upon proof of passing, the practice examination attendees will receive an endorsement to take the FAA knowledge test.
We strive to maintain coordination between our student’s ground studies and their flight training as well. While the ground school may be taken without stepping into the plane, our students maximize their training value when paired with flight instruction from us as well.
This 12-week, 36-hour class covers all portions of the FAA knowledge examination, including regulations, aerodynamics, weather, navigation, aircraft performance, flight planning, communications, weight, and balance, etc.
One class will be spent in the hangar learning pertinent facts about airplane mechanical issues and how the airplanes operate.
Classroom practice involves actual weight and balance, navigation, flight planning issues, and communications on a typical cross-country flight. These exercises are discussed by the class to share experiences.
The cost for the 12 week course is $320 which includes a current Chicago sectional and a chart supplement. Classes will be held on Tuesday nights from 6:00 – 9:00 pm from September 22 through December 15. There will be a free introductory session Tuesday, September 15 at 7:00 pm. Please call the office atto reserve your spot today!
NOTE: Due to COVID-19 classes will be held on line until it’s safe to meet in person.
