Ground School Schedule

The PPL Ground School is on a continuous rotating schedule, with classes held in the main VFC classroom on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 19:00-22:00.  The material is taught by our team of qualified VFC instructors, and they do a great job of making the material understandable, engaging, and fun!

You don't have to start at the beginning and can jump in at the start of a new topic. If you miss a class, you can catch up on it the next time around.  If there's a section of material that needs some reinforcement or review, as long as you are a VFC member and did your initial Ground School at VFC, you are welcome to sit in on any class a second or third time.

Also, you don't have to complete Ground School before your flight training starts.  In fact, most students have found that flight training concurrently with Ground School helps reinforce the classroom concepts.
