Ground School

“In Class” is developed for the classroom setting-‐minded student. And, capitalizes on the best of both worlds scenario, in which the student participates in a ground school classroom setting AND has access to his or her own personal, web-‐based Cessna Training System. A Certified Flight Instructor leads “In Class” through the web­‐based instruction in a small group of 6 students, twice a week for three hours over a seven-­‐week period. Quizzes are at home via the Cessna Training System and reviewed in the following class. In conjunction with “In Class” scheduling each student can choose to take practical flight training to stay on pace with intended graduation goal.
