Ground School

Avian Flight Center offers classroom instruction. Although ground school subjects can be covered one-on-one with your flight instructor, there are numerous advantages to a group class. First, some people learn better in a classroom setting with lecture, texts, and multimedia presentations. Quite often it is a benefit to have other students asking questions that you might not have thought of. The class will keep you on a regular schedule and reinforce what you cover in your flight lessons. And finally, quite often taking a formal class can be less expensive than learning your ground school subjects one-on-one with a flight instructor. Our twelve week courses includes 50 hours of ground instruction, which would regularly cost $2,500.00, plus the Jeppesen Flight School Kit (Books, flight bag, E6B Computer, Plotter) That's a $2,790 value for just $625!
