In order to obtain the Private Pilot Certificate, Instrument Rating or Commercial Certificate a written exam must be taken and passed with a 70% grade or better. Premier Flight Center offers the option of a classroom type setting for our ground schools, which prepares each student for the FAA Written Exam. Our syllabus uses the building block theory of learning, which incorporate a variety of learning methods (Lecture, Overheads, Demonstration and Home Study Work). After a successful completion of our ground school, each student will be given the “sign-off” (aka: permission slip) to take the FAA’s written exam. The materials needed for our ground schools are the Jeppesen Private Pilot Kit which our syllabus is based on.
