Online Pilot Ground School

Start Your Flying Journey The Right Way!

Whether you are looking for a Free Private Pilot Ground School, or are already a Pilot and want to expand your knowledge and learn advanced skills, you have come to the right place!
First, let’s talk about what this ground school is.  I created Fly8MA flight training to offer a solid resource to everyone from Sport Pilots to Private Pilots, Instrument Rated Pilots, to Commercial Pilots and beyond to learn from and build upon their aviation knowledge.
Most importantly our Online Ground School is here to help you prepare for your FAA Pilot Checkride and ensure you PASS without any trouble at all!  You can signup for our Free Private Pilot Ground School, and if you want customized help and checkride prep from one of our CFI’s (and be guaranteed to PASS your FAA Checkride), you can click on “Subscriptions Options” above for a paid account.  If you have any questions you want to ask a flight instructor, or have any questions about where to get started, click the link above that says “Ask a CFI”.
Have fun studying with our courses!
Fly Safe!

Our Mission and Our Guarantee...

 Our mission is to change the way flight training is done in the typical Part 61 and Part 141 atmospheres. We believe in encompassing all of the learning senses to build a firm foundation of knowledge to ultimately build a better, safer breed of pilots. With the airplane cockpit being one of the worst classrooms on earth, we’ve turned to technology mixed in with some slightly different approaches to achieve the kind of true learning needed to make sharp and safe pilots.

We Guarantee...

We Guarantee that when you use our proven knowledge transfer methods to study to become a pilot, or seek an advanced rating, that you will be successful, and you will PASS your checkride for whatever rating, certificate, or license you are seeking.  We are so confident that you will be successful and pass your checkride, that if you don't we'll pay for it.  (by the way, we have a 100% pass rate, what other ground school can say that!?)

Truly incredible value, I am about half way through the course. and even the more complex subjects are broken down into easy to understand sections. Thank you

The course material is extremely well presented. It is obvious quite a bit of time, effort, care and attention went into making this outstanding course. What is also apparent is Jon's depth of knowledge, from the inner workings or a carburetor to CRM ...and all points in between. I will (and have) recommended this course to others. THANK YOU for such a tremendous educational opportunity!

This is the best course out there as far as I am concerned. Lessons are broken down into easy to understand segments and Jon does a great job of explaning things as he moves though each subject. Looking forward to taking more courses from Fly8MA.com!

The combination of videos and written material covers everything you will need to pass your written exam and gives excellent insight on what to expect for your flight training as well.

Before starting this course I knew absolutely nothing about flying I just knew I wanted to learn more about it. I have completed about 70% of this course and feel like I have a wealth of knowledge. Today at the airport, I inquired about flight training and was able to speak with the CFI's using proper flight lingo and felt like I already belonged in their community. 
Many thanks Jon!
