Private Pilot Ground School 

As a Part 61 flight school, Sunshine Flyers is proud to offer a Private Pilot Ground School for first time student pilots, recurrent student pilots in need of a refresher, or licensed pilots who would like to revisit some bits of forgotten knowledge. In efforts to expand our outreach to you, Sunshine Flyers is now offering ground school classes through Sierra College Kaleidoscope Community Education in Rocklin as well as continuing to offer classes at our Auburn location on the Auburn Airport. All ground school classes will be taught by our kind and enthusiastic team of well certified instructors, Mike Poteet and Greg Pellerin. The Sierra College classes follow the semester schedule for the school, not including the summer semester; therefore, we only offer classes through Sierra twice a year: in the Fall and Spring. Auburn classes will be held during the summer months. Classes take place two days a week in the evenings from 6-8pm. We guarantee that we will get you into class, into a written test testing center, and out with a pass! All classes are priced at $199.

Next Private Pilot Ground School Date: February 8 - April 5, 2018. Tuesday/Thursday 6:00 - 8:00pm. Please purchase an ASA Private Pilot Book Kit online.


However, if you find yourself in a position where you are unable to attend class, or there is currently no class being held, come join us in a private, one on one session with a ground instructor at a mere $50/hr.! So no matter when or where, don't miss out on your opportunity to pass your written test and get one step closer to achieving a private pilot license!
