Ohio Private Pilot Ground School – Private Course

This course is created for the Ohio in-person Ground School Group ONLY!

This course is designed to help you pass the written and oral exam for your FAA private pilot hot air balloon rating. The FAA does not publish a test bank of possible questions you might see on your exam. The best way to prepare for the exam is to learn the material and take practice questions similar to what you may encounter on your exam. The course goes over the concepts you will need to know for the exam as well as additional information that will aide you in your flight training and make you a safer pilot. The course has hundreds of sample questions, similar to what you may encounter on your exam. Quizzes are set up throughout the course based on the material to gauge your understanding on the topics covered. At the end of the course you will have the opportunity to practice timed tests which simulate the exam.

One year access to the course, time starts when you start the course! (No refunds)

NOTE: Despite the icons shown below, the majority of the course is written content, not videos. If you have any questions on the course, please don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more. We want you to be 100% satisfied and help you reach your goals.
