What you learn in the classroom will be put to practical use in the air and vice-versa . The sometimes complex nature of what you are learning in the classroom is fully revealed when your instructor is taking you through it in the air.
You’ll understand the importance of ground school and dedication to learning both in the air and on the ground to make you a more professional pilot. Many of our students tell us that our approach to learning is what attracted them to our Academy.
