Ground School and Flight Training are the two components that usually make up your pilot training. A conventional ground school can be an in-class group instruction on the same premises, however, more and more students choose to complete their ground school online.
During ground school, you learn the theory and fundamentals about how airplanes fly, the weather (meteorology), navigation and radio communication. The main purpose of ground school is to provide you with the minimum theoretical foundation required for a successful pilot training and to eventually help you pass the knowledge test.
We recommend starting your ground school online in parallel to your actual flight training. Theory and general knowledge helps you better understand the flight lessons and actual flight training helps better understand the underlying theory. Your can do your own research, use one of the recommended ground schools below or just give us a call and we will be glad to answer all your questions.
