Kyle H course review pilot ground schoolBefore starting this course I knew absolutely nothing about flying I just knew I wanted to learn more about it. I have completed about 70% of this course and feel like I have a wealth of knowledge. Today at the airport, I inquired about flight training and was able to speak with the CFI’s using proper flight lingo and felt like I already belonged in their community. 
Many thanks Jon!-Kyle H.

private pilot ground school reviewThe course material is extremely well presented. It is obvious quite a bit of time, effort, care and attention went into making this outstanding course. What is also apparent is Jon’s depth of knowledge, from the inner workings or a carburetor to CRM …and all points in between. I will (and have) recommended this course to others. THANK YOU for such a tremendous educational opportunity!-Eric M.
