PRA VP Tim O’Connor, a Gyroplane CFI and Advanced Ground Instructor, is making available a live, online ground school for the Sport Pilot/Gyroplane certificate for PRA members. Here is a chance for those seeking the certificate to complete the preparation for the FAA Knowledge Test online.

The course will be offered over eight consecutive Thursday evenings, January 9 – February 27, 2014 from 7pm – 10pm Eastern Time. This will total 24 hours of live, virtual classroom instruction, (sample screenshot shown above,) and students will be assigned homework. An additional (optional) three hours of flight planning may be added to the schedule if time permits for a total of 27 hours of live, online training.

You’ll need a computer or tablet, a good internet connection, and headphones with microphone (no speakers please). Students will receive a bundle of materials after they have registered for the class including exam supplement diagrams, worksheets and practice links.

Students achieving a 90% or higher score on test prep will receive a logbook endorsement to take the knowledge test at an FAA authorized testing center.
