You’ve come to this site because either you’ve heard of us through friends, instructors, previous students or you’re just looking for the best way to pass your PPL exams. There are a number of ways of achieving this depending on your availability, location and learning style. An approach that may suit one student may not appeal to another. So we have adapted courses and technology to our products which will work for you one way or the other, either in person or by distance “catch up” learning. There is though no substitute for personal study and our products supplement your private study, not replace it.
Ground school with John and Bruce is an absolute must. The sessions are fully interactive, welcoming discussion and questions where required. A dull classroom environment this is not. John and Bruce uniquely bring the theory to life through explanations, presentations and demonstrations with the odd story thrown in. My only complaint is that the time goes far too quickly.
I would not have been able to do these exams without doing this course
Attending the PPL ground school has given me the confidence to pass my exams. John and Bruce’s teaching approach is fun and interactive, while staying professional. I wish them continued success in the future
The skills and knowledge required to attain a PPL extend way beyond the confines of the cockpit and to many people, are a lot more daunting than actually flying a plane. The ground school, run by Bruce and John, provides an excellent environment to tackle the syllabus material, prepare for the many exams, meet fellow students and learn from the ‘real-world’ experiences of two highly dedicated instructors. For me personally, it has proved an invaluable addition to my flight training, and a far more enjoyable way to study than locking myself in a room with a stack of textbooks. Thoroughly recommended!
I found reading the books quite hard work but John and Bruce have shown me how to work out the answers to the questions. Also they inform you about things that you need to know about flying that are not in the exams. Learning in a group also helps with bouncing questions and supporting each other. I think it is a wise investment
What you must do when deciding how to approach the exams is to ask yourself if you are disciplined enough to stick to a routine and schedule in the work, particularly if it’s been a while since you last had to study.
The 9 exams do require work and application and until all 9 have been completed individual passes have a shelf life of just 18 months, which sounds along time until life gets in the way! So if you don’t want your exams to hold your flying progress back or have to re-sit previously passed exams you have to crack on.
Our lecturers have a lot of experience and can adapt to suit your learning needs.
Your flying instructor should train you on all aspects of the flying syllabus which should include certain elements of ground school, long briefings and Theoretical Knowledge. Depending on your experiences along the way and how interactive your instructor is with you there can be situations or misunderstandings which may only come out in the wash further down the line. Whilst there is no substitute for experience, our course can open many a student’s eyes.
