    If you don’t have your Private Pilot’s License, you’ll need to fly with a CFI. The knowledge test is good for 2 years, so if it’s been 5 years, you’ll need to retake the ground school and take the knowledge test again.

    The good news is, that you can still use any flight hours that you do have (if any) towards your license, and if you remember any of it, your training both in the air and on the ground should be pretty quick.

    one small addition – technically there is no requirement to ‘retake the ground school’ – although its absolutely a good idea.

    And if You are looking to take a ground school, which will run you over $400 with manual and supplements take a peak at our free Virtual Ground School Demos at:


    Its not a question/answer kind of software. Its just like going to an actual ground school with over 11 hours of material covering all the subject matters in an easy way that even a child can understand. It is obviously aimed at the written so you will see many tricks to help you with that but there is also plenty of material to help you with the actual flying part and most important its only $89.
