Ground School Spring 2019

Next Ground School Starts:

Tuesday April 30th, 2019


Ground school provides you with the mandatory theory and technical information you need to obtain your pilot’s license. Ground school is taught by experienced flight instructors in a classroom environment – group discussions are encouraged.

Classes will be held:

  • Time 6:30 – 9:30 PM
  • Tuesday nights and 4 Thursdays
  • 19 sessions in total
  • Location: Lower Level of Owen Sound Billy Bishop Airport
  • Classes are limited to 20 people
  • Enrollment on a first-come basis

Course Outline Based on From the Ground Up (29th Edition)

There are four weeks during this session where we have doubled up on classes, one night on a Tuesday and one on Thursday.  This allows us to finish the course in the first week of August and not go right to the end of summer so you can enjoy more of the warm weather without dragging the course out to the end of the holidays.  In general, the double weeks are the 4th full week of each month (in the “20’s”) with the exception of the final week, combining like classes together to maximize the schedule.  

Can’t make every night?  Not to worry, we have ways of making up for missed classes.
