Start with Ground School
Learning to fly isn’t all adrenaline and thrills. Comprehensive instruction on the ground is critical to your success as a pilot as this is where you’ll develop your knowledge of aircraft operations and safety that you will later apply on the ground as well as in the air.
At McAir, there is no formal ground school as many people think. All ground school is self-study at your own pace utilizing our Cessna Computer Based Instruction (CBI) Kit. Developed by The Cessna Aircraft Company and world-renowned King Schools, our CBI kit walks you interactively through each flight-learning session. The program allows you to interact through multi-media labs to gain the necessary knowledge for each rating. You’ll learn everything you need to know – not only to pass your exam, but also to be a knowledgeable, competent pilot. Study wherever you go at home, in the office, or even while traveling. You’ll watch presentations by top aviation educators, see dramatic, enlightening in-flight footage, take interactive quizzes, learn interesting trivia, and prepare for upcoming lessons before you ever climb into the airplane.
This state-of-the-art training aid is superior due to one simple fact – knowledge retention. Studies have proven that computer-based instruction provides understanding and comprehension of material better than any instructor guided ground school or textbook.
In essence, you’ll see it and do it before ever leaving the ground. This, in turn, produces the most efficient training event for each flight. The system allows you to save precious time and money in the air by knowing the material before flying.
