trouble with ground school...
I'm a student at Parks college in St.Louis, MO I am in the proffessional pilot program. My problem is i can fly the plane very well, but I am having problems with learning everything you learn in the ground school class. If anyone knows of anything to help...such as a book or anything please let me know. Thanks
My favorite book is the Jeppesen series of books. They are a little on the expensive side, but can give fairly good explanations. Are they any particular areas of concern? I'm an advanced ground and instrument ground instructor. Is it airspace? Weather? Navigation?
I just started on my IFR and I found a book from Jeppesen called Instument Commercial Manmal. Don't let the name fool you it is for anyone just starting on the IFR. My point is that Jeppesen put out some great
I think that you should get Trevor Thom's three books. Edition one would be the best to start with, but the other two will help you in late stages of your training.
I am from Belleville,IL (about 15min. from Parks) And fly out of Scott AFB, and am departing for my last solo flight before my private pilot's check.
Anyway, I am saying like many other posters Jeppsen's has a strong hold on the market. I used them in my ground school course, and they can be dry. I am defly afraid of going to my check ride withe the FAA, and them asking me a question I know I was taught but can't recall. I have bought the private pilot's manuel from them and it is great. One of the most exciting and visual aviation books around. I have been reading it every night for the last week, preparing for the ride. So I would definatly invest the $50 again.
I am visiting SLU/Parks in a few weeks and I would love to hear about the campus and such if you could e-mail me or put up another post that would be great.
