This is a ground school for pilots looking to complete their private pilot license.  This is also a great refresher course for all pilots.  This will run as a full 12 week course.  The class will be taught in Gateway Aviation 's classroom.  The class is limited to 14 students. The books used will be the FAA Airplane Flying Handbook, FAA Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledg, FAR/AIM and FAA VFR publications.  The VFR publications (sectional charts, AFD...) will be taught through ForeFlight; you will be able to follow along with paper charts as well.  


The FAA requires a total of 35 hours to graduate an FAA 141 Private Ground School. We will issue all successful graduates a certificate indicating 36 hours of 141 private pilot ground training.  Upon successful completion of 36 hours and passing all stage exams and end of course exams the students will be issued an FAA 141 graduation certificate. 

This course will provide the necessary 141 ground training hours needed by our Liberty University students.

Gateway's RedBird FMX 1000 full motion AATD (Simulator) is FAA 141 Approved!

Students can utilize time in the RedBird as 141 ground or flight training. 

This is an awesome piece of equipment for procedure training... pause and review as needed!


All Students taking this ground school will receive $10 off per hour on the RedBird FMX toward their private pilot rating, til rating completion.
