Private Pilot Ground School
A minimum of 40 hours of ground school is required by Transport Canada in order to obtain your Private Pilot's License. Our comprehensive ground school is held on sight at the Burlington Airpark in the classroom facilities. The classes are held once per week, for 16 weeks (accelerated is twice per week, for 8 weeks), in 3 hour blocks of time. Completing the ground school is not a prerequisite to start flight training, but it is recommended to be enrolled in ground school as you complete the in-flight training. This power-point led course will help you to learn all of the necessary material required for the written test. For quality in-class flight instruction, call us to register today.

In order to complement student learning in the classroom, Spectrum Airways offers a ground school kit that will include everything the student needs to study, as well as to assist in their flight training. The kit is optional, but is highly recommended as the majority of the classroom content will come from the included texts. See the link below for a list of what is included in our ground school kit.
