The purpose of this course is to provide students with all necessary book knowledge to pass the FAA private pilot written exam and become a private pilot. "Ground school" is the first step in the process of becoming an FAA-licensed private pilot; therefore, this DeCal is not designed to teach students how to control a physical aircraft, but rather to prepare a student for practical flight training and delve into the world of aviation. Similar to driving school (and like all pilot ground schools), the course will be held in a classroom; the class will take at least one field trip to a local area airport and flight school as well. See our website at fly.berkeley.edu for photos!
All instructors for the course are students at UC Berkeley who have earned their private pilot's licenses. Some instructors are graduates of this very DeCal!
The student who scores the highest grade above 80% on the final exam will receive a free flight lesson with a certificated flight instructor at a local flight school! All grading policies are detailed in the course syllabus.
