Do I have to complete ground school before I begin flight training?
No. You can start your flight training whenever you want to. Most students find that taking the ground school in conjunction with their flight training helps to solidify and retain the concepts that they have already learned.
Before taking your private pilot practical test, you must complete ground school or an approved home study course and take a 60-question, multiple-choice, FAA written exam. The minimum score on this test must be at least 70%.
