Elevate Aviation is proud to partner with the Edmonton Flying Club to deliver a Private Pilot Licence Ground School program at no cost.
Our 4 week program will consist of approximately 35 hours of Workplace Essential Skills and General Aviation Knowledge and 80 hours of Ground School. The Ground School component is divided into 4 Modules; Air Law, General Knowledge, Meteorology, and Navigation. Further to this, you will also receive 5 hours of ground training and 5 hours of flying time to be put toward your flying hours required to obtain your Private Pilot Licence after your successful completion of the program.
Join us in the FAST program as we elevate your aviation dreams to new heights and prepare you for a successful career in the dynamic world of flight.
The 80 hour ground school course is divided into 4 Modules; General knowledge, Air Law, Meteorology, and Navigation. The course is presented via the Power Point medium with a test at the end of each phase. You may begin your training at the start of any of the 4 Modules.
This traditional lecture style is supplemented with videos, guest speakers and group activities. In addition, we encourage group discussions and opinions. The best way to learn is by asking lots of questions and staying involved.
Our online course(s) consists of informative presentations, demonstrative videos, interactive worksheets, quizzes to confirm learning along the way and a full exam prep course at the end to help you ace that Transport Canada written exam!
