Course Information

The ground school is divided into four modules:

  • Air Law
  • General Knowledge
  • Meterology
  • Navigation

You may begin your training at the start of any of the four modules. Once you have completed the ground school and have a minimum of 10 hours of flight experience you can write the Transport Canada Regulated written exam.

The Private Pilot written exam will consist of 100 questions and will require a passing mark of 60% overall, and a minimum of 60% in each of the 4 sections. This exam can be done right at the Edmonton Flying Club and booked through our Chief Flight Instructor once you have a letter of recommendation from either your flight instructor after successfully completing a few practice exams, or from your online ground school course after successfully completing the exam prep course.
