About this app

Spend less time studying and more time flying! This is the FAA Private and Recreational Pilot version of GroundSchool, our FAA knowledge (written) test preparation featuring up-to-date questions, free updates, and illustrated explanations written by a professional team of pilot examiners and instructors.


GroundSchool is fully compatible with FAA ACS (Airman Certification Standards) and our editorial team is working to keep it so as ACS continues to evolve.

*** New! This app now features our exclusive "Jargon Buster" feature - over 10,000 aviation technical terms defined and linked to in a "don't lose your place" way to help you score higher and learn more efficiently! ***

*** This app has now been updated with many new features, including support for favorite questions, a more robust and faster update feature, support for a wider range of devices, integration with the (optional) StudyStatus.com test monitoring / results sharing service, question search, and much more! ***

Don't be fooled by imitators! Competing apps use only the limited set of questions that the FAA publicly releases via its website - that is not enough to adequately prepare you for your test!

Study actual, up-to-date FAA questions and then ACE your FAA Private Pilot and/or Recreational Pilot knowledge (written) test the easy way with GroundSchool FAA Knowledge Test Preparation software by Dauntless Aviation, the trusted leader in FAA written test preparation.

Features:

* Actual FAA Questions Current and Valid for Right Now. As soon as you install the software, use the 'update' feature and the software will connect to our servers, grab the latest questions, images, figures, and explanation content, and you'll be good to go.
* Detailed Explanations written by an experienced editorial team of examiner and instructor pilots.
* All Charts and Figures Included
* Several flexible study modes - fits the way you want to study!

My buddy that is a CFI recommended a test prep because the part 141 school I will be going to doesn't prepare you very well for the written. This app has done a good job at teaching. The information is broken down into sections and they have supporting material for every question. I also purchased the audio for a extra charge so I can listen while I work. It's a good feature but I do have a couple issues with it. First, I listen using jaybird x3 on a s8+ and I can't pause it using the button on the headphones. As I mentioned I listen at work and not being able to quickly pause can be a pain. Secondly, I like to focus on a section or two at a time. A option to automatically repeat the section would be great as some sections are short and having to pull out my phone every 10 minutes can also be a pain.

Great interface, I liked how it would seperate questions you got right and wrong frequently into categories for you so it was easy to find what questions needed work. The explanations are better than shappard air, they're not just copy-pastes from the far/aim. Worth the money, I got a 95% the first time. As long as you use this software as recommended it'll work for you
