Learning to fly is not reserved for military personnel,
engineers, and thrill seekers. In fact, the average student pilot is probably
just like the average American. No special education is required to get started,
and you certainly don't have to be a genius. There is nothing involved in flight
training that an eighth grade science student cannot grasp. Sound easy? It
really is. But don't be mistaken - the material you have to learn isn't overly
difficult, but there is a lot of it. There is a lot more to flying an airplane
than simply steering it around and landing.
Everything you need to become a safe, proficient, and confident pilot is found right here in the Gold Seal Ground School. This is a comprehensive program. You don't need anything else. Gold Seal covers you from start to finish!
There are two types of skills you have to master to become a
pilot: the physical skills involved in actually flying the airplane, and the
knowledge mastery of topics that cover everything from navigation, to
aerodynamics, to weather theory. Your flight instructor will help you with the
first, and Gold Seal will help you with the second.
Depending on how often you fly, and how much you study on your own, it will probably take you between three and nine months to complete your training. The more that you study, the more quickly (and cheaply) you will complete the program and attain your goal of becoming a licensed pilot. Want to get started now? You've come to the right place.
One of the most important documents for flight students is the Private Pilot Airman Certification Standards. It is usually abbreviated and known as the ACS. In it, the FAA has carefully described precisely what you have to learn to become a pilot. You will pass two tests before you earn your private pilot certificate and the ACS is the best way to prepare. It lays out the conceptual knowledge you must learn as well as the physical flight skills you will master. There is a lot of material, but the good news is that none of it is particularly difficult. The Gold Seal Ground School leads you through this material in a fun and interactive way. All of your progress is stored so that you can come back and pick up where you left off. Anywhere, and from any computer. Aviation is in your future. You can do this!Sign Up Check Out The Course Contact Us
