Spend less time studying and more time flying! This is the FAA Parachute Rigger version of GroundSchool, our FAA knowledge (written) test preparation featuring up-to-date questions, free updates, and a question databank maintained by our professional team of master parachute riggers.

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.

Don't be fooled by imitators! Competing apps here in the AppStore use only the limited set of questions that the FAA publicly releases via its website - that is not enough to adequately prepare you for your test! Our GroundSchool app, on the other hand, features a much more comprehensive database (typically about 2-4 times the size of the demo FAA public one) of actual and current FAA questions that you likely can and will be asked on the actual test! This along with our detailed, professional explanations and easy to use interface are major reasons why pilots have come to trust GroundSchool.

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

Program Missing Many FAA Test Questions

Studied utilizing the Dauntless Program for about 2 months prior to the written test. Aced all of the questions that were available in the program; however, ten on my test were not. Got an 84. The extra questions were about number of patches authorized on each panel, types of AAD activation., etc. Additionally, while doing practice tests, the program randomly shuts down and you have to start all over again. That happened probably 10 to 15 times in the 2 months I utilized the program. Otherwise, It is a nice way to practice before you test.

Helpful but buggy

This app really helped me to prepare for my rigger exam. I used it pretty regularly and passed. While the majority of it is good, there are a significant number of bugs and issues with the app. It is completely overpriced for what you get. At this price point they should have their act together.

Sometimes when doing the practice test there would be no correct answer to a question. I highly suspect that there are a couple of incorrect answers. There is a function to get an explanation of an answer but it doesn't work at all. That being said, I was better prepared than if I had not used it and I would probably recommend it with the caveat that using it will probably be a lot like dating an Italian super-model. There will most likely be drama but it will probably be worth it.



I got a 84% on my written test and only studied this app for a few days, some ram-air questions on my test were not in this app..... That sucked
