While it is not always seen as the most glamorous part of learning to fly, groundschool is nevertheless an essential part of flying training.
We work hard to provide you with this important foundation to your flying in a relevant and interesting way, offering a variety of options designed to complement your own study. Read on to find out more.
Training Days & Evenings
Horizon Aviation offer regular training days and evenings for all of the PPL theoretical knowledge subjects, designed to complement your own studies. These sessions are a great opportunity to consolidate what you have learnt and clarify areas of uncertainty with an instructor. Each session has attendance limited, in order to maximise the benefit to each individual.
Our full-day courses are designed to focus on either one or two of the theoretical knowledge exams and should be attended once you have completed your own study of the subject(s). The day consists of several hours of classroom time, mock examination question practise and, finally, sitting the examination itself.
Cost per session: £75.00 (including examination)
Our regular evening sessions again focus on an individual subject, but can be attended at any point during your studies. The evenings are designed to be flexible and allow you the opportunity to ask questions and concentrate on any areas of difficulty. Each session involves approximately two hours of classroom time with one of our instructors.
Cost per session: £35.00 (including refreshments)
