face it - you're unlikely to ever travel the world sideways
as a Flight Engineer. However, in today's highly competitive
job market, showing a potential employer a good score on a Flight
Engineer written test can set you apart from the rest. In fact, because the FAA Flight Engineer written exams are a good way to assess your systems knowledge and reasoning, many airlines demand it.
You can quickly study for your FE written test with our GroundSchool app. You don't need
waste money or a weekend on some $250+ Flight Engineer cram courses that effectively just sticks you front of a machine (or an instructor
doing his best to mimic one). Our app is much less expensive, features the same actual and realistic FAA questions, and has been proven to work for thousands of pilots.
Our GroundSchool app costs about the same as a book, but is much more time efficient. We've had people report scores of 100% after just a few evenings of using our app.
books and other materials, our app updates itself using
the built-in self update feature. You can always have the latest
and greatest available study material from us at no extra charge.
you study here using up-to-date, actual FAA questions. Answers and Explanations have been written by highly
experienced flight instructors and professional pilots. All
required charts and figures included.
Flight School, College/University, or FBO?Bulk and Lab/Site site licenses are available.
We believe (and scientific study validates) that the interactive activity of test preparation, when combined with the sort of detailed supplementary and explanatory material that we offer, is an excellent way to thoroughly learn and internalize key aviation information.
We are test prep specialists and the experience of thousands upon thousands of pilots proves that our method works. We do not use test prep as a "hook", as some of our advertising-based competitors do, to sell you expensive but ineffective passive video-based courses and similar products that do little besides waste your time and drain your wallet.
Use our material and study hard - not just the questions and answers, but the reasoning and explanations too, and be on your way, in a highly time and cost efficient way, to knowledge test and aviation success!
best way to prepare for your FAA written test is to download the GroundSchool
app from above. Topics covered in the FAA
test bank include:
This app has a really cool feature. After you complete a study session, you can, choose to report your progress to our TestPrepStatus.com system where you will be able to see charts of your study progress so that you can identity your weak points.
The really cool thing, however, is that you can also invite your instructor (CFI, flight school, mechanic school, mentor, parent, study partner, etc) to log in and monitor your progress. This is neat because now you can prove to your instructor in a concrete way now your study is progressing.
Access to the TestPrepStatus.com system is completely free for you and your instructor! Only GroundSchool has this innovative system.
GroundSchool is designed to help you learn the material and score highly on your test in the most efficient manner possible. Our app represents years of listening to and understanding the needs of pilots and mechanics. The program is designed with the singular goal of helping you learn the material so you can pass your FAA written test with a minimum of time and effort. Sure, there are some study methods that are cheaper (and many far more expensive!)... but only if your time is worth nothing. Our app is fast, efficient, and proven.
Here are a few screenshots from the app:
With our FAA Written Test Prep app, you don't have to worry about having
an out of date version. Our authors work to update the data as FAA question
pools change. Groundschool has a built-in self-update feature that connects
to our servers and makes sure that you have the latest and greatest versions
of the app and data soon after they becomes available.
Additionally, the self-update can be used to install new test
data (such as Instrument Rating on top of Private Pilot) so you can have it
when and where you need it.
Passed the IFR (Airplane) and Flight Instructor Instruments tests in the same afternoon after using your apps!
I think your apps are very good. There was a guy next to me at the CATS testing center that failed after using She**** A**. ... I think the intuitiveness
of your apps is superb. ... Thanks for the help, I'll be using this for my commercial as well!
- JT - GroundSchool User.
wanted to express my gratitude for the FAA Ground School Test Prep
app. The features are outstanding with regard to knowledge
reinforcement, cross referencing, concentrating on weak points,
and ease of use. Even if you have one of the other home study courses
you still need this program."
- DM - GroundSchool User.
took my test yesterday, and scored 97%. I hd K***'s DVD set and an A** book too. None of them hit the mark in terms of meeting my needs as much as your app did.
I was able to load the app on my work laptop, and take practice tests everywhere: in airports, in-flight (in scheduled airlines), long meetings. It really helped that I could save my tests, and could
review the questions I got wrong later. Being able to search for questions ... was very valuable in keeping me efficient and focused.
You should all be proud of having created something so useful, so well thought out!
A "test bank" contains
one or more tests. For example, the "Private and Recreational Pilot" test bank will contain the Private
Pilot Airplane, Private Pilot Helicopter, and other tests. You'll be able to see the exact tests in each
of the test banks in the screens to follow. Here
are the available GroundSchool test banks:
For the Professional Pilot of the future! One of our best Value
FAA written test prep packages. This is for those really focused on a career in aviation. This package includes
both the Takeoff and FlightLevel Bundles combined.
For the Professional Pilot of the future who also wants to operate in the dynamic Sport Pilot world! Our Best Value
FAA written test prep package. This is for those really focused on a career in aviation but who also love it enough and want the 'future proofing' security of also getting a
Sport Pilot license(s). This package everything from the Takeoff, Sport Pilot, and FlightLevel Bundles combined.
Complete preparation for the three written / knowledge tests (General, Airframe, and Powerplant) that you'll need to take and pass to get
get an FAA A&P certificate. Includes access to all three A&P test banks. Please note: choosing this is the same as choosing a "pick 3"
bundle above and then selecting the mechanic tests from there.
This is for purchasing the Military Competence test banks (Military Competence Airplane and Helicopter - MCA and MCH and/or Military Competence Instructor (MCI)) only. Purchase this option if you are a military pilot wishing to obtain your FAA civilian commercial pilot and/or flight instructor certificate(s) on the basis of your military experience. See the Military Competence page for full details.
This is for purchasing the prep for the Fundamentals of Instruction (FOI) test only. This is for people who are sure that they need
ONLY the FOI prep. Most flight and ground instructor candidates should NOT get this, but rather the complete CFI test bank that includes all the flight/ground instructor tests plus the FOI.
To be clear: any purchase that includes
at no extra charge, so that if you selected as a title either as a 'single test bank' or part of the pick 3 bundle, you'd get both CFI and FOI and it would
only count as one test bank. This "FOI only" option here is at a lower price for those who know that they will only ever need FOI.
"Excellent app for a fraction of [competitor's] price! And this time I actually learned the material instead of cramming for a test!! Probably spent about 20-30 hours studying in a 2 week period and scored a 99 on the FEX and was able to relax in comfort of my own home during my self paced study plan." - RB (FE/ATP)

FLIGHT ENGINEER TURBOJET (FEX)
Our Flight Engineer (FE) test prep covers any/all of the following tests:
When you start our app, just select the test you want to prep for and the questions will be filtered to only that test. You can also change this at any time within the app. You study for a "Basic" test if it's your first FE certificate/rating, as will be the case for pretty much everybody. You study for an 'add-on' if you already have one FE rating and are moving to another - for example, if you already have a FE Reciprocating and are moving to FE Turbojet. In practice, the difference between the "basic" and "added rating" test banks is minor. Out of prudence we suggest all FE candidates study the (sometimes slightly larger) "basic" test bank even if you are taking an "added rating" test. It won't hurt and it might help.
Relatively few people these days take the FE exams. As such, the FAA does not update them often and some of the questions on them are quite old and often out of date. It is what it is. It still can be interesting and useful for a surprisingly wide range of aviation activities and all else being equal, no matter what you fly you'll be a better informed pilot if you study for and pass an FE test.
Moreover, we and other test prep providers get relatively little feedback on the FE tests these days. From the users who do take the test, we tend to get score feedback ("I got a 96%!", "I got a 90%!", etc.) but not specific question feedback.
The tests are not easy, but are manageable by any reasonably qualified person who puts in the time and effort to study. For the Turbojet tests, which most people take, it will take as a VERY rough estimate 20-40 hours of study using our app.
Some airlines and companies view your taking and passing the FE test - normally the turbojet one in such cases - as helpful to your application for a pilot job even if the aircraft/company you might fly with no longer has flight engineers.
Some non-US countries continue to use the FAA Flight Engineer tests for validation of their Flight Engineers. Our prep will almost certainly be fine for you if this applies to your country.
That said, we absolutely have the best FE test prep in the business. We have the most detailed explanations and by far the best overall user experience. While we don't have a lot of FE users these days, feedback has overall been excellent from those who have used our preps to pass.
Obviously, if you're going to be taking a very rare FE test, like a reciprocating engine FE test in 2023, we ask for your understanding that our app is necessarily a 'best effort' sort of affair. While the FAA has carried through a lot of the guidance material into relatively new versions of their FE handbooks, some of the nuance has been lost and at times there is a bit of a disconnect between the handbooks and the questions. We're not trying to put you off - our prep is still very much the best out there for this and there's no reason that we know of that you shouldn't pass if you put the time in to study. We're just trying to align your expectations with the reality that some of these tests are taken by a few handful or fewer people per year at most in some cases, so you can't expect the FAA test bank to be as polished or current as it is for, say, the Private Pilot Airplane test.
It is highly recommended that you supplement your study using our FE test prep app with reading FAA handbooks which you can download for free from the FAA website. Look at the references of questions in our test prep to see what handbooks the information comes from. A combination of our app and reading of official, current FAA handbooks is absolutely the best, proven way to prepare for your FE test. That also said, you can certainly pass your FE test if you only use our app to study.
for checking out our app! Good luck on your test, and blue
"I believe that your product is
ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT. I has been a joy to work
with. All the more so due to your very prompt
response to my questions.." - EF
"I was about to order the
[competitor's product] when I noticed
your product. Because it was downloadable, I
could start practicing right away. And, the
price was right. I'm a 64 year old 1000 hour
private pilot with instrument rating
who suddenly decided to get my Commercial
and CFII as a retirement vocation. I don’t learn
as fast as I did 40 years ago. GroundSchool has
been a great learning and practicing tool." -
"I will tell you that I think your
app is a wonderful product and I have
personally recommended it to many students at
[FBO] ground school classes... in fact as a
result of using your program, my wife blew by
the other students in her class! This has been a
tremendous confidence builder for her as she was
somewhat intimidated by the other students (all
male) Kind of fun to watch their faces when she
completes a multiple chapter review in 1/4 of
the time they took. Now, they make comments
during the correction like..." well I had answer
A but [wife's name] has answer B and I'm sure
she has the right answer "
We're having a
great time with your app even I use it to
keep myself fresh... Thanks!" -
