Ground School Studies For The Private Pilots License

Hello, my name is Ben Lovegrove and in this video I’m going to review Rod Machado’s 40-Hour Private Pilot eLearning Ground School.

Are you struggling with the ground school subjects for the Private Pilots Licence exams?

Do you find book learning difficult, and do you long for easy to follow explanations that combine accuracy with humour?

Are you already a PPL holder, but you want to refresh your knowledge of the key subjects quickly, without going through the entire process again?

When I learned to fly 30 years ago all I had was a pile of textbooks and the occasional evening class arranged by the flight school.

I had to drive to a classroom where a Flight Instructor would patiently explain the PPL subject matter to a collection of bewildered students using only a whiteboard and a few slides.

Eventually, after many hours of study and practice tests, not to mention travelling back and forth to classes, I passed all the exams.

But for people learning today there are far more efficient ways of learning about all the core subjects required for the PPL.

Rod Machado is Certified Flight Instructor, with degrees in Psychology and Aviation Science, who has taught hundreds of people how to fly since he began instructing in 1973.

He is a prolific author, and the publisher of dozens of books, ebooks, CDs, and articles.

He has appeared in TV shows, given seminars, and been a columnist in the aviation press.

In short, there is no one more qualified to be your personal ground school instructor.

And you can benefit from Rod’s experience and teaching in his 40-Hour Private Pilot eLearning Ground School.

Here are a few titles of some of the lectures included in the 26 course modules.

Aerodynamics: The Wing is the Thing.
Engines: Knowledge of Engines Is Power.
Electrical Systems: Knowing What’s Watt.
Flight Instruments: Clocks, Tops & Toys.
Federal Aviation Regulations: How FAR Can We Go?

Radio Operations: Aviation Spoken Here. Airspace: The Wild Blue, Green and Red Yonder.

“If you’ve ever wanted to learn to fly but thought there was no way you could learn and understand everything, then this is for you. I thought I was too old to learn to fly, but Rod lays everything out in a logical and humorous manner that not only makes learning easier…but fun.”
