How To Study And Prepare For Pilot Tests

How To Study And Prepare For Pilot TestsYou should recognize the advantages of planning a definite study program and following it as closely as possible. Haphazard or disorganized study habits usually result in an unsatisfactory score on the knowledge test.

The ideal study program would be to enroll in a formal ground school course. This offers the advantages of a professional instructor as well as facilities and training aids designed for pilot instruction. Many of these schools use audiovisual aids or programmed instruction materials to supplement classroom instruction.

Aviator Flight Training Ground School

Location is very important when you are looking for a flight training school. Florida is a great place to earn your wings. The moderate and mild climate makes flight training a pleasure. The good weather allows you to log more flying hours faster, get your degree quicker and be on the way sooner to your new aviation career.

For more than 31 years Aviator has been the leader in multi-engine flight training. We have successfully trained pilots to earn more than 45,000 pilot airmen certificates. Our FAA-certified Part 141 and Part 61 approved flight programs provide students with the skills and experience demanded by today’s commercial aviation industry. Aviator is accredited by the ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges).

Our flight training programs are set in a structured environment to ensure the student receives the knowledge that is required to be a professional pilot. Our programs all offer a minimum of private through commercial ratings, with options for all three instructor ratings, as well as options to maximize multi-engine flight hours, Cross Country flying is coast-to-coast, if desired.

When you choose Aviator, you have the option to conduct ALL of your flight training in aircraft, or to reduce your cost by conducting a portion of your flight hours in an approved Part 141 FTD simulator.

This “hands-on” approach provides the best flight training environment for pilots of the future. We encourage training in actual instrument conditions. Flying at the Aviator is 24 hours-a-day, rain or shine. Aviator flight training programs offer more actual multi-engine time than any other school in the country. Our fleet of multi-engine aircraft are equipped up to GPS and EFIS Systems (Glass Cockpits).

Come and take a tour and see the Aviator difference.

If you are unable to attend a ground school, the self-study method can be satisfactory, provided you obtain the proper study materials and devote a reasonable amount of time to study. You should establish realistic periodic goals and, equally important, a target date for completion. Self-discipline is important because it is too easy to “put off” the study period for some other activity.

When To Take The Test

Experience has shown that the knowledge test is more meaningful, and is more likely to result in a satisfactory grade, if it is taken after beginning the flight portion of the training. For optimum benefit, it is recommended that the knowledge test be taken after the student has completed a solo cross-country flight. The operational knowledge gained by this experience can be used to advantage in the knowledge test.

Where To Take The Test

Computer testing centers have been certified to administer FAA knowledge tests. You will be charged a reasonable fee for the administration of FAA knowledge tests. You can locate a computer testing center online , or contact the local FSDO http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/field_offices/fsdo/for more information.

What The Test Items Are Like

Knowledge tests have only multiple-choice questions. You can practice for the test by reviewing the question bank of test questions. Source
