Ground School

While ground school is not for everyone it does offer some advantages.  Many students prefer to study on their own between flight lessons as their instructor gives them assignments.  This is a great way to decrease the cost of training.  Each lesson your flight instructor will spend a little time with you making sure you understand what you have studied then you will take to the skies.


A formal ground school class gives a level of discipline that many people need in an environment that is conducive to learning.


At Curtis Eads Ground School you will attend ten weekly lessons that will prepare you for your written test and give you much of the knowledge you will need for your flight training.  In the classroom you will cover:


  • Private Pilot introduction / Pilot Considerations
