Ground Schools

"The First Step"


The Eglin Aero Club is a certified Part 141 Flight Training School and as such ground school training
 is a requirement.  

We are currently not accepting new students.

Our CFI's are working hard to give our students the best instruction possible. Untill the waitlist we have is shortened to a reasonable wait time we will not be accepting new students.



--Private Pilot Ground School, in-person (in-person currently unavailable) 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. -$400 for the course, $285 for private pilot kit

--Jeppesen Online Ground School is a 1 year program where the student will be able to learn on their own time. The online ground school would be a great option for those who can not attend the in-person course due to their work schedule. It's also a good option for those who are able to be self-taught. The student will have 1 year to complete the ground school or the student can renew the subscription for an additional cost. This is available for the Private Pilot Program, Instrument Rating, and Commercial Single-Engine. - $315 for all online courses, $285 for private pilot kit, $84 for instrument/commercial manual


--The Instrument Ground School course (in-person currently unavailable) 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. - $435 (includes instrument/commercial manual)


--The Eglin Aero Club offers in-person ground school classes for Private Pilot and Instrument ratings from time to time when there is sufficient student interest to run a class.

Please fill out a registration form if you are interested in attending a future ground school. 
--Other Ground Schools (CFI, CFII) will be given on a one on one basis or special arrangements can be made as long as a minimum class size is met.
