If you're learning to fly, or thinking of learning, then here's the place to post your questions, comments and experiences
As per the subject line really I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their thoughts/experiences regarding the ground school courses from this company.
Thanks in advance for your replies
I haven't used theier services but I have had a look at the cost and, having passed all the 7 exams with just study at home and a couple of much cheaper sessions with my FI, I have to say - why spend all that dosh on the theory exams when you could get 6 - 8 hours extra flying?
With my flying school I found that if I had any questions the FI was happy to help, and rained-off lessons were replaced with some classroom study at far less than the cost of the fast track ground school(s).
I should just get the books and get stuck in!
Very new here, but I used this company recently to take all 7 exams (theory and exam) in 5 days (although we actually completed in 4 days!)
Very professional, good anecdotes, and in my opinion worth the £1000 I paid. I now have all exams under my belt and can focus on the fun part in the aircraft!
Let me know if you have any more questions
Hmmmm don't you want to learn to fly, not just pass the exams. The basic PPL theory is quite important to through understanding of flying and careful study and understanding of the books isn't going to happen in a week.
My advice as above is study the books discuss things you don't follow with instructors and take the time to have a really good understanding of the basics.
Extremely grumpy PPL/IR
I did all the studying in a classroom setting in adult night classes and picked up a BTec in Aviation Science as well. (This wasn't a grand plan, just the way it worked out). Only after that did I start actual flying lessons. Did the full PPL in 46 hours so maybe I didn't need the extra hours and had the money to fly them later without an instructor.
Horses for courses etc.
