Start your career in aviation.
Freeflight Aviation is offering a Private Pilot Training class, called ground school for students interested in starting their private pilot career in Aviation. This class will help you pass your written test for the Private Pilot rating. We recommend taking flight instruction during this training class because this can often help you understand the training material in the class much better. Our training class starts on February 6th, will be for 10 weeks on Tuesday evenings from 6 PM to 10 PM. During the training you will have a chance to visit our aircraft maintenance facility and learn more about the aircraft you will or are flying.
