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 private pilot 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. 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.
This 14-week, 42-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.
Class will meet every Tuesday night from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and runs from September 10th through December 17th.
The cost for the 14 week course is $320 which includes a current Chicago sectional and a chart supplement. Please call the office at (608) 836-1711 to reserve your spot today!
