The greatest advantage for enrolling into a classroom ground school versus an online ground school is that you have a real instructor who is not only preparing you for the FAA written exam, but also providing insights into the remaining steps of your flight training journey.

About our drone courses

Now is the time to get started! More companies are using UAVs for professional services in industries like photography, cinematography, real estate, construction, surveying and mapping, agriculture and more.

Are you already an experienced flier, but need to take the private pilot test? Look no further than JCCC. The Private Pilot Ground School will prepare you to sit for the FAA Private Pilot exam.

Are you ready to learn to fly? As an instrument-rated pilot, you will be far less limited by adverse weather! Instrument flight training involves learning to control and navigate an airplane only by reference to the flight and navigation instruments while following instrument flight rules (IFR).

In our Private Pilot Ground School class, you will gain more insight into the air traffic control system in the United States. In addition, you will learn to interact effectively and efficiently within that system while piloting an airplane during adverse weather conditions.
