Q:

Can you describe the "12-week training session on the ground"? Is it a classroom at the airport? Is it 12 hours total? What times and days of the week are available? Also, my wife got her pilot's license 30 years ago, but hasn't flown since then. Is this a good refresher course, or too basic for her?

Tim S.  asked on  Aug 22, 2013

A:

The "12-week training session on the ground" is actually a 14-week Private Pilot Ground class. The class covers all the aeronautical information necessary to prepare you for the Private Pilot Knowledge Test. The class can also be taken as a refresher. The class meets once a week at our office at Reid-Hillview Airport. Each session is three hours long. We offer the classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.

Q:

Is it possible for my girlfriend and I to do the classes together at the same time. As one of us is in the backseat while the other flies and swap as the other one finishes?
