After finishing my first Gleim online course, to prepare myself for the private pilot FAA written exam I have to say that this is the best way to get ready. It's really useful and easy to go through. I completely recommend any person who is beginning his/her flight training. Not being more just thanks to Gleim.

Thank you for availing such a great course to people like me who love learning so much! I am enjoying every bit of it, particularly the topic on Characteristics of learning. I am an international student and the material is so easy to follow through. I will love to continue studying with Gleim and to recommend your material to others.

I would like to thank Gleim online ground school for making an easy to use and understand program. I purchased private pilot three and a half weeks ago and today passed my FAA knowledge test. I will be using Gleim again soon and highly recommend.

This is the first online Aviation course I have taken and I was thoroughly impressed with the entire process from the comprehensive study guides to the end of study tests and practice exams. I scored an all time high mark thanks to Gleim. I will include Gleim as part of my continuing studies until ATP and recommend Gleim to my students and fellow pilots.

I passed the FAA ATPL exam successfully (88%) a few weeks ago. Many thanks to you. Your online learning program was an essential tool to success. Thank you 1000x. The ATP kit is very good because it allows needed transfer of knowledge in a very efficient & structural way.

I passed my FOI test on the first attempt using Gleim on the 25 of February 2014, I have been using Gleim since 1987 and Gleim is with no doubt the best online training course I have ever used. It is simple, clear and straight to the point. The course was not just to pass the exam but it is very informative, fun and easy to understand. Thanks to Gleim, as I highly recommend anyone attempting to take an FAA exam to choose Gleim!

Your courses are incredible. I tried "the other guys" and made them send me my money back after completion.

Thank you very much for your course. I passed my written exam with a 92 back in May and then got my private license three days later. Since then I have gone on to get my seaplane rating and will be working on tail dragger next. I look forward to using your services again when I look to do my IFR rating in the future. Thanks again.

I have been preparing for FAA knowledge tests for a while now using various public resources. With the help of your ground school, I have been able to put together a comprehensive picture of what is expected during an FAA knowledge test. I found your material more in line with material the FAA knowledge tests presented, than other preparation material have I used, I was prepared for this. As a result of this, I was able to take, and successfully pass, on the first sitting, the FAA PAR, FAA BGI, and the FAA FOI, at an internationally accessible FAA authorized test center. I plan to continue using your on-line ground school content as, I find them unique and extremely useful, as I am more adapted to your type of course delivery method.

I am not a technical person and was therefore a bit reluctant on taking the test because I felt that my lack of technical knowledge would inhibit my ability to recall the information. The material was presented in such a way that I was able to recall and pass the first time around. Highly recommended study material and I am now looking forward to taking the next modules.

One of the best purchases I have made in my young piloting career. This online ground school was extremely helpful and I passed my knowledge test on my first try! I was very nervous going into the test but I remembered all the tips I learned from this course and I was very confident once I started taking the test. I will DEFINITELY be back when it's time for me to go onto my commercial license! THANK YOU!!!

It has been an academic pleasure and exciting mental exercise working through the Gleim Private Pilot Airplane Online Ground School. I am looking forward to using the new FAA knowledge I have learned during my FAA knowledge test, as well as in my other General Aviation pursuits. I would recommend it to any other General Aviation Pilot, who may need a quick review and confidence boost on their FAA Knowledge, as I do!
- Andrew Ojwang, Private Pilot

Best educational resource I have ever used.
- Adam Williams


August, 2013
I started to prepare for the FAA Knowledge exam on my own using a few of the standard texts out there. I quickly realized that my preparation was disorganized and inefficient. I tried another online course first and canceled after the first lesson. Luckily, my school uses Gleim texts, so I decided to try the Gleim Online Ground School. It was a great decision. The course is well structured, organized, and very concise. I was able to efficiently get through the information in less than three weeks. I'm not saying that it was easy, it wasn't, but it allowed me to go from not knowing anything about flying, to mastering all the basic information necessary. Because you are able to take practice exams in the actual format offered by CAT or PSI, there are no surprises on test day. I felt completely relaxed taking the final test, because I was able to do it repeatedly, in the same format, during my Online Ground School course. This is definitely the most efficient and effective way to learn. Don't waste your time studying from a book. The test is administered on a computer and that's the way you should prepare for it. I didn't just pass the test, I CRUSHED IT.

I want to thank you and the Gleim company for an outstanding Instrument Pilot Course. It is my pleasure to let you know that I took the test today and passed it with a 97! The course was very thorough and prepared me for my success! I thought about several other courses but am very happy that I chose Gleim. Also, it was nice to speak to such nice helpful people on the phone.

I just got out of the testing center and I passed with a 90% mark. Your course is very well designed and it prepares any candidates to pass the test without any difficulties.

I would like to take this opportunity to say your online ground school was the best preparation for the FAA test I have seen on the market. I liked all the repetition, the study mode, and stage tests, and the large question database (other products have a much more limited database). I also purchased a hardcopy of your Sport Pilot Maneuvers and I think the combination of the two is the best organized, most comprehensive, and well thought out reference I have seen. At first, I loved all the DVDs out there and shunned the "plainness" of the Gleim resources, but now I really appreciate that simplicity! You get right down to business in the most efficient way possible. I have learned that I can really trust that Gleim has got all the regs and knowledge covered!

I took the instrument written test last Friday and received a high passing score. I am very pleased with the Gleim program and highly recommend it to aspiring pilots.
- Dan Cedrone


March, 2013
I recently used the Gleim Online Ground School to prepare for the Instrument Knowledge Exam. The Instrument written exam is an order of magnitude more complicated than the Private Pilot written exam, and I am extremely happy that my school recommended Gleim. I believe Gleim Online provides the best training for the most reasonable price. Using only the Gleim Online course and the Gleim Instrument test book, I passed the FAA written exam today on the first attempt with a score of 93%.
- Dale Young, Private Pilot (Airplane) and Instrument Student

What to Expect in a Study Unit

  1. Each study unit in this course is divided into three sections referred to as Instructional Elements.
    1. Knowledge Transfer Outline
    2. Multiple-Choice Study Quiz
    3. Multiple-Choice Test
  2. To assist you in your studies, there are two additional Instructional Elements in each course:
    1. Stage Test
    2. End-of-Course Test
  3. After each quiz/test, you will be provided with an opportunity to review the questions that you answered incorrectly in the form of a Review Quiz. You must answer each question in the Review Session correctly before you can move on to the next question.
  4. Your scores on the study quiz and final test will be averaged together to determine your final score for each study unit.

How to complete a study unit

To complete a study unit you must:

  1. Study the knowledge transfer outline for the study unit. The outlines are broken down into sections called "subunits" to make studying easier. We recommend you print the entire outline to study from and keep as reference. Use this printout for quick reference. When you have finished studying the outlines, you will be ready to take the multiple-choice quizzes.
  2. Answer all of the thought-provoking multiple-choice study questions. You must answer all questions in order to continue. After selecting your answer choice, you will receive immediate feedback explaining why your answer was either correct or incorrect. Your grade on the study quiz is based on the first answer you select for each question.
  3. Review the questions you missed. After completing the study quiz, you will be prompted to review the questions you missed on the quiz. Analyze and understand why you missed the questions you did. If you did not successfully pass the quiz, you will need to retake the study quiz.
  4. Pass the multiple-choice test. You will be given a test based on the material you covered in the study quiz and outline sections of the study unit. You may move back and forth between questions and change your answers until you are ready to grade the test. When you have answered each of the multiple-choice questions to your satisfaction, click the Grade button.
  5. Review the questions you missed. After completing the test, you will be given a review of the questions you missed. Analyze and understand why you missed the questions you did. If you did not pass, you will need to retake the test.

Note: It may take a few minutes for your grade to be delivered. Do not click the Grade button more than once. Also, do not hit the back button on your browser to try to return to the quiz after it has been graded. Please email us through our Online Support Email Form if you have problems.

Completing the Stage Tests

  1. After every 4-6 study units, a Stage Test will be given.
  2. The Stage Test will be made up of questions from each of the preceding study units.
  3. You will be required to pass the Stage Test before being able to move on to the next study unit.

Completing the End-of-Course Test

  1. After you have completed all study units and Stage Tests for your Online Ground School, you will be administered a cumulative End-of-Course test.
  2. You will be required to pass this test.
  3. You will have two chances to pass the End-of-Course test. If you fail more than twice, you will be locked out of the course, and you will be required to send an email to Gleim Publications explaining the situation. It will then be at the discretion of Gleim whether you may continue the course or not.

How to complete the course

  1. Complete all study units of the Gleim Online Ground School in your chosen certificate.
  2. Complete all Stage Tests.
  3. Complete the End-of-Course test.
