Study actual, up-to-date FAA questions and then ACE your FAA CFI (written) test the easy way with GroundSchool FAA Knowledge Test Preparation app by Dauntless Aviation, the trusted leader in FAA written test preparation.

GroundSchool is fully compatible with FAA ACS (Airman Certification Standards) and our editorial team is working to keep it so as ACS continues to evolve.


* Actual FAA Questions (ACS) Current and Valid for Right Now: What you see in the app is highly likely to be exactly what you see on the actual test. Use the program's built-in self-update feature to get the latest question set and illustrated explanations via the Internet.

* FREE UPDATES FOR LIFE: so that whenever you're ready to take the test, the app will be there to help you study (and then review later on). Unlike with books, which are getting out of date from the moment they are printed, update capability is built right into the app. So, when you receive this product, you will be able to update it with only a few clicks now and in the future and be sure that you are studying from the latest available questions.

* Detailed Explanations: Questions feature detailed, often illustrated explanations by our editorial team of professional pilots, mechanics, instructors, and examiners.

* All Charts and Figures Included - Everything that you need to reference for your test is included.

* Virtual E6B and Other Flight Computers / Calculators, Right on screen for convenient learning

* Intelligent grouping of questions by subject area and specific test: If you study with books, the questions for multiple tests are listed together, making it difficult to avoid studying material that does not apply to you. Our app separates this out, allowing you to concentrate only on those questions that you will likely be asked.

* Flexible Study and Simulated Test Modes: GroundSchool features multiple study and practice modes so that you can customize it to works best for you. It even features modes that emulate the software at the major FAA testing centers so that there will be no surprises there!

* Fits the Way You Want to Study: Regardless of whether you just want to memorize the questions quickly or you really want to learn the material deeply, GroundSchool can be configured to suit and is remarkably easy to use.

* Compatible with all FAA "ground school" classroom-based courses: If you're enrolled in a formal "ground school" at your FBO or college, this app will help you get to the head of the class.

Thoroughly enjoying these apps....

I have used your software to pass my commercial checkride and now the CFI apps loaded on my desktop and iPad. Having used "other'' prep software in the past I must say yours is superior in several ways:
1. Great images and supporting graphics
2. In many cases very detailed descriptions of why the distractors are incorrect (and the wrong answers can be very subtle).
3. Touches of humor mixed into the descriptions.
4. Having the software loaded on the platform allows for less time moving through each question c/w with others which retrieve the answers and explanations from the cloud.

Do not, I say again, Do not use this software and expect to do well on your written exam. Wether you are using this sfotware for your commericial exam or flight instructor exam do not waste your time.

After taking my written exam for both commerical and flight instructor, I will reccomend anything other than Dauntless. Even more, my entire flight school at my university does not reccomend using this software. I did not listen to their warnings.

If you use this software and memorize every single question, you can expect to see about 50% of the questions studied on your written exam. For the rest of the questions you will be shooting in the dark and guessing. Take my advice and do not waste your money or time on this software. Other friends of mine who choose different sofwares did significantly better on the test and even finsihed the test in about 30min. I had every Dauntless question memroized and was scoring in the high 90s on all my practice tests and still struggled and did not get near the score I thought I deserved.

Dont be lazy and just download this software because it is availible on the app store like me. Go find another resource to study.

The main reason I used Dauntless in the first place is because I love how the app is laid out and how organized it is. However if the questions are feeding me wrong outdated information this software is completley a waste of time.

Amazing App!

For a fraction the cost of other prepware, this prepped me (a PPL holder) for the BGI exam (93%) in only four days! I would not hesitate to recommend this prepare to anyone looking to add another rating or certificate.
