Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.Leonardo da Vinci

PPL ground school brush up. Get six done before Christmas!
The time has come around again for brush up ground school. Each subject is tackled weekly on a Saturday with the exam either at the end of the day or that start of the next week. In modules of three exams, to coincide with the sittings rule you will take six of the nine by Christmas with a two week break and finish off in the new year.
If you already have some of the exams passed the order is the same as you are already doing so you can dip in to each module.
This is brush up ground school and you will be required to have read the theory book before attending. The brush up school will increase your exam scores by an average of 25%. We had 100% success rate last time!
Module one is from Saturday 12 November to Saturday 26 November and covers Air Law, Operational Procedures and Human Performance and Limitations.
Module two is from Saturday 3 December to Saturday 17 December and covers Meteorology, Flight Performance and Planning and navigation.
Module three is from Saturday 7 January to Saturday 21 January and covers communications, Aircraft General and Principles of Flight.
The day starts at 10:00 am with a presentation on the subject and lasts until all the brush up mock exams and comprehensive debriefs are complete, usually mid-afternoon.
The price is £95 per subject including the exam (usually £35) or, if you want to pay up front for all nine, £760 giving you one day free of charge.
