FAA Knowledge Tests, or commonly known as “written tests,” are a way of life for pilots with each certificate sought. Preparing for the knowledge test was a huge part of our training as private pilots. In reality, ground school and studying for the knowledge test and the oral portion of the practical test comprises more than half of your flight training as a private pilot.


With the new Airman Certification Standards, the days of passing the test based on rote memorization are over.  New, scenario-based questions are being added to the database of test questions in attempt to draw from the student pilot’s knowledge and implementation of that knowledge in real-life scenarios.  And believe us, you’ll be glad you didn’t rely on memorization when it comes time for the oral exam at your check ride.




Gain the knowledge you need to pass your Private, Instrument or Commercial FAA written exam, plus “whole picture” learning that will make you a lifelong, safe aviator.
