Pass Your Exam With Flying Colors

For almost ten years, the Master-Flight-Training Instructors proved that by taking one of our Weekend Ground Schools, student pilots can BEAT THE ODDS. Nationally, over 70% of student pilots that do not take this course drop out of pilot training.

Overcome the biggest obstacle to obtaining the Private Pilot Certificate and the Instrument Pilot Rating

Master-Flight-Training recognized that the lack of time to attend ground school classes coincides with the lack of confidence to pass the Private Pilot and Instrument Rating exams. Overcoming one of the biggest obstacles to obtaining the Private Pilot Certificate and the Instrument Rating by completing ground school quickly and passing the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge test or FAA Instrument Rating Knowledge Test  while the information is fresh is the solution for some.

Students that cannot make the commitment to faithfully attend a multi-week program or the time to sit in front of a computer for an online course should consider attending Master-Flight Full-Emersion 2-Day Ground School. Even student pilots that have attended a multi-week program or taken an on-line/DVD course should consider attending the 2-Day Ground School as a review to assure passage of the Federal Aviation Administration computerized/written exam.

Classes begin at 7:30 a.m. sharp on Saturday and Sunday

Q: What is the passing score?

A: 70% (42 or more) of 60 questions must be answered correctly.

A: You are allowed two and one half hours to complete the exam. The national average is 73 minutes. The minimum time for successful completion is two minutes. Masterflight weekend ground school graduates often complete the test in less than one hour.

Q: Where can I take the test?

A: FAA-Designated Computer Testing Centers have been certificated to administer FAA knowledge tests. Applicants will be charged a $150 fee for the administration of FAA knowledge tests (not included in the Weekend Ground school fee.). Test registration numbers and a complete list of test centers can be downloaded from the Regulatory Support Division’s web site.Contact your local FSDO to obtain information concerning an FAA Designated Computer Testing Center in your area.

Q: What document or documents must I present prior to taking the knowledge test?

A:Your Masterflight Instructor will provide all weekend ground school participants that complete the course a graduation certificate suitable for framing and a Pilot's Logbook endorsement certifying that they have satisfactorily completed an applicable ground training course and are prepared for the knowledge test.

Q: If I fail the knowledge test, is there any way to determine the areas in which I need additional work, so I can study for a retest?

A: Yes. You will receive an Airman Test Report from the testing center. The test report will contain your test score and will also list topic and content descriptions for the areas in which you were deficient.

Q: If I pass the knowledge test, will I receive the same information concerning areas in which I need additional work as I would if I failed the test?

A: Yes. (Refer to the previous answer.)

Q. How long is a satisfactorily completed knowledge test valid?

A: 2 years. A satisfactorily completed knowledge test expires at the end of the day of the 24th month after the month in which it was taken. If a practical test is not satisfactorily completed during that period, another knowledge test must be taken.

Q: May I take the test on Sunday evening – immediately after the ground school.

A: Technically – yes. However, Masterflight recommends waiting until Monday morning before taking the test so you are better refreshed. Research supports that test scores are highest on Monday and Tuesday following the weekend ground school.
