Ground School in Just One Week? It is possible says Linda Wheeler

Whilst many dream of learning to fly, few of us have the same enthusiasm for Ground School. Faced with weeks of dreary evening classes and home study, it’s often the barrier that gets in the way of the aspiring pilot and gaining that treasured Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL). That may all be about to change, according to Linda Wheeler.

“Ground School doesn’t have to be a grind,” says Linda, who has recently combined her 20 plus years as a private pilot with her experience in the education sector to develop her own technique as an instructor, either in group classes or one-to-one tuition, she is proving that she is onto a winner.

“When I set out to change the way would be pilots could approach Ground School, I was drawing on my experience in secondary education, where I discovered that I had a knack for explaining difficult concepts to people in a way that was simple, meaningful and memorable,” says Linda. “Bringing that experience to Linda Wheeler Ground School has shown that, for the motivated pilot who can dedicate the time, it’s perfectly possible to learn all of the subjects and pass all of the exams, in a single week.

“My ethos is: simplify, don’t mystify. I’m not trying to impress my students with my own daring exploits or prove to them how clever I am.  My job is to make sure that they know all of the information they need in order to be a safe and qualified pilot.  I can get them ready for those tough exams – and make the experience as enjoyable as possible. ”
