Part 6 FAA Private Pilot Ground School (Part 61)
Read the course description in its entirety before enrolling.
This course is optional and does not cover any additional topics that are not already covered in Part 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. This is a review/practice course to prove that you are ready to take the written exam and worthy of a written endorsement.
*** If you already have a flight instructor who is willing to sign you off for the exam, you DO NOT need to enroll in this course ***
You studied, you practiced, you think you are ready for the FAA Private Pilot Written exam... In order to do so, you need a written endorsement from a Certified Flight Instructor who agrees to sign you off. At this stage, you have two options to get this endorsement:
You are actively part of a flight training program and your flight instructor can quiz you to make sure you are ready, that you "know your stuff", and then agree to sign you off.
You are not part of a flight training program yet but want to take the test and I give you the endorsement after you enroll in this course and meet the requirements.
This course will provide you with several resources to complement the knowledge you learned in Part 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of this course series in the form of review material. This course will also provide you with six (6) FAA practice exams (60 questions each).
In order to receive my endorsement, you must meet ALL the following requirements:
You must be enrolled in Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 of my Private Pilot course series on Udemy and have completed at least 90% of each courses (I will verify via my dashboard).
You must provide a screenshot of two (2) practice exams showing a passing grade of 80% or more. You will have access to six (6) practice exams in this course.
You must then contact me with the information so I can send you the graduation certificate.
In return, you will receive a graduation certificate that you can take to the testing center to prove you received training. My endorsement does not have an expiration date but once you pass your written exam, it will be valid for 24 calendar months (you must pass the FAA checkride during that time).
Note that, by signing you off, I put my Flight Instructor Certificate and reputation on the line by acknowledging that I gave you proper training and that I feel you are ready for your exam. As such, it is imperative that you DO NOT CHEAT. Do not take the practice exams using outside aid (including using notes). You are only cheating yourself. It will cost you more money and time in the long run.
In the unlikely event you fail the FAA exam, you will need recurrent training from a flight instructor (which will cost you) before attempting the exam again (and pay for another test fee). This is NOT something that I can provide remotely.
If you agree to all of the above, please enroll in this course. I look forward to finalizing this step in your training.
Who this course is for:
- Students who completed all the courses in the series (5 courses) and want to receive a written endorsement in the mail in order to pass the test.
