The Eglin Aero Club is a certified Part 141 Flight Training School and as such ground school training
is a requirement.
--Private Pilot Ground School prepares students for the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Test. It is approximately 35 hours of classroom instruction, including three stage exams and one final exam. Homework is assigned for each session that assists students in successful completion of the classroom exams. Topics covered include aircraft systems, instruments, performance, meteorology, navigation, communications, emergency procedures, airports and complex aircraft systems.
--The Instrument Ground School course is designed to prepare a student for the Instrument Rating, Airplane Knowledge test. It is approximately 35 hours of classroom instruction, including three stage exams and one final exam. There is homework assigned for each session and completion of it will dramatically increase the student’s odds of success on the final classroom test and therefore the FAA written test.
--The Eglin Aero Club offers ground school classes for Private Pilot and Instrument ratings from time to time when there is sufficient student interest to run a class. Visit the Aero Club and fill in the “show of interest” card that will be on file toward determining sufficient class size.
--Other Ground Schools can be given on a one on one basis or special arrangements can be made as long as a minimum class size is met.
