We will cover multiple ground lessons every other Wednesday night for 7 weeks. Each night will complete between 9pm and 10pm. You can download the nightly breakdown of lessons and pre-study requirements here.
You can sign up for the Ground School here. Please choose if you want the IFR Ground School for $250, or the IFR Ground school and Sporty’s Instrument Learn to Fly course for $400. If you prefer to pay over the phone, please contact us at 517-552-1101 or email us.
The ground lessons are part of our standard Instrument Syllabus (Download Here) and are integrated at the most appropriate time with the flight lessons. Students learning to fly with us can choose to either do the ground lessons in the syllabus 1 on 1 with their instructor, OR take the ground school starting next Wednesday. If you take the ground school, it will be a classroom format with other students, and by the end of the course you will be signed off on all your ground lessons in your syllabus. We estimate the cost for doing all ground lessons 1 on 1 with your instructor to be approximately $1,500. So the ground school cost of $250 to cover all ground lessons in the syllabus is a great way to reduce the overall cost of achieving your instrument rating.
You will see that each lesson in the syllabus has a “Required Pre-Study” section. This references the volumes and sections of the Sporty’s course required to study prior to that Lesson. The ground school will cover a number of ground lessons in the syllabus each night of the class. You can download the ground lessons covered on each night here. This will detail the ground lessons covered each night of the ground school and what segments of the Sporty’s course to complete in preparation for that night.
There will be a total of 7 classes to cover all the ground lessons in the syllabus. They will be held every other Wednesday. This will give two weeks between each class to do the required pre-study in the Sporty’s course.
We treat our ground schools as a “lifetime membership” so you can make up any missed sessions in the next class, and re-attend any sessions as many times as you like. So, if you have already paid for a previous instrument ground school you are more than welcome to attend this new and improved ground school again.
