Episode 3 – Ground school – the ACS and FAR/AIM

plane spokenEpisode 3 is here! This week, we go over the basics of ground school, and I give you three essential book recommendations to form the ‘core’ of your studies. I have the best flight lesson of my life (night training), and we explore the ACS – the syllabus of all Private Pilot checkrides – so you know what to expect.
