Gulf Coast Aero’s ground school is designed to provide an enjoyable learning experience while covering the subjects necessary to pass the FAA Knowledge Exam for Private Pilot Airplane. Lecture time is kept to a minimum to enable maximum participation by attendees in individual and team activity.
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 FAA requirements. Upon proof of passing the practice examination attendees will receive an endorsement to take the FAA knowledge exam.
This accelerated 8 week (including practice testing), 48-hour class covers all portions of the FAA knowledge exam, 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 how the airplanes operate, fly, and mechanicals.
The cost for the 8-week course is $400 which includes PHAK (Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge).
Classes will be held in our training center at 9X1, on Tuesday & Thursday nights from 6:00 – 9:00 pm
