FAQ > GroundSchool FAA Knowledge Test Prep
Yes, questions are filtered by specific test. (for example: airplane vs helicopter)

Yes, absolutely.

Our questions are filtered by test. This means that when using our app you will study only those questions that our editors have determined apply to your particular test - nothing less, and nothing more. This is a huge time saver.

Our FAA knowledge test preps are sold by "groups" - for example, Private Pilot, IFR, Sport Pilot, Commercial Pilot, Flight and Ground Instructor, Sport Pilot Instructor/Examiner, ATP, Flight Engineer, Aviation Mechanic - General, Aviation Mechanic - Airframe, Aviation Mechanic Powerplant, and Drone (UAS) Pilot.

Each group generally contains one or more tests. For example, our Private Pilot titles contain the following tests:

  • Private Pilot Airplane
  • Private Pilot Helicopter
  • Private Pilot Glider
  • Private Pilot Gyroplane
  • ... and several more.

Once you get our GroundSchool - Private Pilot app on the device of your choice, you will be prompted to select the test you want to study for (for example: Private Pilot Airplane). Once you do that, the app will present you with only those questions that our editors have determined have applied to that test.

Should you want to, you can switch tests within a group at any time. For example, you can later switch to Private Pilot Glider if you wish. In practice, most people ever take only one test in any given group (except for flight instructor candidates, who take the FOI Fundamentals of Instruction test along with a test such as FIA flight instructor airplane), but the option is there should you need it.
