Ground School 
While there is no official requirement for a ground school under FAR part 61 training requirements, we highly recommend taking a ground school class.  Students are highly encouraged to spend personal time studying in addition to ground school class time, as personal study reduces the time instructors need to spend on additional instruction.  Our private pilot ground school runs 6 weeks, and meets from 6pm to 9pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.  The cost of the course is $500.  For an additional $200, we sell the Gleim Private Pilot Kit which includes a flight bag, all necessary textbooks, test supplements, logbook, flight computer, and a flight plotter.  These kits normally retail for around $225.  We also highly recommend that students who are interested in ground school register at least 2 weeks in advance to ensure a space in the class, and we have time to order them a Private Pilot Kit.  The minimum number of students required for a ground school class is 4, and the maximum is 10. 



A word on Pricing
Unfortunately, flying is not an inexpensive hobby.  It is also not a cheap profession to embark upon.  All of our estimates for course deals are based on the amount of time it takes average students to gain the knowledge and proficiency necessary to pass the practical test for a certificate or rating.  In some cases, students may require more instruction than listed for a particular course.  However, students can do a lot to decrease the time it takes to learn by showing up early for lessons, and studying and preparing before lessons.  Students will also have more success if they are able to square away personal and financial issues before they begin training to avoid breaks in training.
