an instrument rating is a good idea. It will make you a safer,
more capable pilot even if you never fly in actual instrument
on your choice of considering the training that, more than any
other single differentiator, sets a safe pilot apart.
GroundSchool features ACTUAL
FAA QUESTIONS. Answers and Explanations have been written by
highly experienced flight instructors and professional pilots.
All required charts and figures are included.
By this point, you're familiar with the format of FAA Knowledge
tests and probably appreciate the benefit of getting them
done sooner rather than later. Our app helps you do this
is a no-nonsense fashion.
you only need a minimum 15 hours dual instruction with
a CFI-I to fulfill the requirements for an instrument rating. Yet, many people require 50, 60, or more hours
of dual for the rating. While 15 hours is perhaps an unreasonably small number, 60+ is usually a wastefully large number caused
by unprepared students trying to do the bookwork in the air.
Learn the material first - our app helps you do this.
Remember, IFR flying is all about information--why else would
all "accelerated" IFR programs ask you to
have completed your written tests before showing up on day one? [read more

significantly more time efficient. Sure, DVD/Video sets may
look pretty, but most find them inefficient, timewise. Our

fear the examiner! A high score
on the written test will help you impress the examiner during
your checkride (flight test), but doing well on the oral exam
portion of your checkride will impress him/her more. Study for
your written exam with our GroundSchool app (below),
but also prepare for your Oral Exam with our RideReady
app. Starting early with RideReady is a plus, since
it really goes a long way towards teaching you more complex
scenario, judgment, and systems type questions that you will
likely experience during your training and oral exam compared
to the relatively straightforward written exam questions.

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!

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."

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.
took my written and was determined to be happy if I received
a high-80's to low 90's. When I saw my final score, I was upset.
I scored a 98 and was naturally upset that I missed that one
question. (note: the previous statement that he was upset was
sarcasm, of course!) The FAA Check Airman was impressed, though,
so that's good!! Took the checkride yesterday, and passed with
flying colors. So I am now officially in the "Instrument
Rated" club!!" - SF (IFR)

your advice of getting the [IFR] written out of the way early
was good. [Using the GroundSchool app] I scored 100% on
the written and passed my checkride with only 26.3 hours dual

love your program. It's a very effective way to study... Passing
my knowledge test for my Private was a breeze after using your
app. So easy that I didn't even hesitate before buying
your Instrument-series questions after starting work on that
rating. And I like the fact that I can download updates as the
questions and our best estimate of the answers evolve."- JE (Private/IFR)

Guys, I just wanted to let you know that I took my Flight Instructor
Instrument (FII) written today and got a 96%. I am a 95' Embry
Riddle Grad and got my single multi engine Private Instrument
back in the early 90's and decided to complete my CFI, CFII
and MEI ratings. Your app really helped me break some of
the rust off and get back in the pilot seat as far as the knowledge
tests. Money well spent!!" - Sincerely, CM, CEO ***** Aeronautics,
have been telling the students that come to me for instrument
training that the written must be completed before we start
training, and I always suggest your stuff."-

"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!" -
