Ace your FAA Private Pilot and/or Recreational Pilot written (knowledge) test! Spend less time studying and more time flying. GroundSchool is the smart pilot's secret for passing FAA knowledge (written) and is brought to you by Dauntless Aviation, the trusted leader in FAA written test prep.
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 Unlike with books, which are getting out of date from the moment they are printed, update capability is built right into the app.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.

Easily the best Test Prep software out there! A++++
I used many different study methods to pass my FAA Private test and nothing prepared me better than this software. I only had a month before my written and my instructor reccomended the software and I thought it was going to just be another money pit. I finally decided to purchased the software without taking any form of ground school and this is honestly all you need. They explain the answers better and more indepth than most ground school instructors do. Passed the Exam with a 94% using nothing but this software to study!
Tie Dyed 150 Privat Pilot Accomplished
I leveraged the King videos and used this to prep for the tests and check ride. I use it now as a refresher of all of the things we so easily forget. I use it on my iphone and macbook and it's always worked seamlessly. I'd like to use the one for IFR as well and I'm hoping the developers invested as much time and energy into making that study even better!
Thanks for providing a great ground alternative that takes less time for studying than watching tons of videos.
Great study aid
I found this to be the best study aid by far. The explanations that accompany the answers are top-notch - very well-written and easy to understand and remember. (Which makes it surprising that they repeatedly misspell some simple words like judgment (judgement) and readiness (rediness) throughout the app). Other than small issue like this, I find their written explanations to be superior those in the Sporty's course.
