Please be mindful when flying drones of any size anywhere at any time especially during times of emergency. A quick call to any airport close to where you plan to fly will keep you in the know and everyone sharing the skies safe and sound

Did you know flying a drone over an active wildfire can land you in prison?

Free Online Private Pilot Ground School Course Offered for High School Students

Do you have dreams of one day becoming a commercial airline pilot and traveling the world? The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) will host and offer a Private Pilot Ground School (PPGS) course for high school students statewide. The free online course offers 60 hours of coursework, including live instructional hours plus readings and assignments to be completed outside of course hours. Students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion and receive the required flight instructor signature on their application for a Private Pilotโ€™s License when they are ready to apply.

VSGC plans to offer the course to up to 50 students from August 1 to September 2023. Students must complete an application to be considered for selection to take the course. Selected students will also receive required course materials at no cost if they complete the course.

Funded by the United States Federal Aviation Administration, the Private Pilot Ground School program is a rigorous program in which students immerse themselves in learning about weather, electronic navigation, flight systems and operations, and FAA regulations. The competitive application process is open to students statewide. Qualified applicants must be U.S. citizens, Virginia high school students, and 16 years old by the start of the course. Up to 50 students will be selected. To participate in the program, students must make themselves fully available for all program activities between August 1 and September 21, 2023.

The application deadline is July 24, 2023. Learn more about our Private Pilot Ground School and apply at: https://vsgc.odu.edu/virginiapilotpathwaysprogram/private-pilot-ground-school/

Please contact VSGC Program Coordinator Ian Cawthray, [email protected], with questions. Students accepted into the course will work directly with their Certified Flight Instructor once the program begins.
