Online ground school is a self paced program used in conjunction with flight training. Our comprehensive and thorough presentations, videos ,and questions will adequately prepare you for your Transport Canada exams.
Our online ground school gives you access to Flight Instructors and allows you to communicate with other students using our interactive forum. This lets you get the answers to your questions that much faster.
All of our ground school videos are conducted by Daniel, a Class 1 Instructor and Class 1 Aerobatic Instructor. We also have a team of experienced and practical flight instructors, commercial pilots, and airline pilots who have created course content and continue to offer support to students when required.
All of the ground school is conducted in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations and is allowed to be credited towards the appropriate permit or license.
Your flight school actually has no say in the matter of where and how you conduct your own ground school training.
They may only run a ground school once every few months, only when enough students register, and they tend to overprice their ground school due to the man power in teaching.
By doing your ground school online, you will be able to progress through your flight training faster and more efficiently. I’m sure the flight school will love that. Remember, all of our content meets the requirements as laid out by the Canadian Aviation Regulations. If you have any issues, please contact us.
Student pilots can record the amount of time they have spent on their ground school in their pilot training record.
In any case, all students will be provided with a record of ground school at the end of their course, upon request.
Students who fully complete the course will receive a certificate with the actual time spent in their course.

Upon course completion and upon passing a minimum of 3 exams to a 75%, we may provide students with a letter of recommendation which is valid for 60 days. Only one letter is valid per student.
