Columbia Flying Club PPL Ground School has concluded. We will announce here future classes at either of our locations when they become available.
Columbia Flying Club is offering an 8 week Private Pilot Ground School.
The current PPL Summer 2022 Ground School is scheduled for Monday evenings at 6:00PM in Columbia, CA at the Columbia Airport. May 9-July 11.
Ground Schools are important because there is so much that the student needs to know. Some students learn better in a classroom environment while engaging with other student pilots. It is also a huge cost savings from having to pay an instructor an hourly rate to learn these subjects.
Plus its just a ton of fun to hang out here at the airport on these nice summer nights! Its great exposure if you are interested in airplanes and learning to fly!
You can join the class at any portion of the course.
Come try our Private Pilot Ground School. If you are not satisfied or don't think this is for you, we will give you your money back! Come try out class for free, and you can pay when you come back!

It is very possible and likely that the instructor may have to cancel for other professional obligations. The cancelations could be made day of. We will try to send out an email and phone contact the students enrolled in the class of any schedule changes or cancelations as soon as they are known.
If classes are canceled, the class will be rescheduled.
The class may be asked if they want to make it up at a different date sooner, or continue the class after the planned end date.
Students do not need to cancel, however we do appreciate a courtesy email if you are able to do so. We will try to coordinate to allow missed classes to be made up at a later date during the next class.
We are not utilizing any specific curriculum or study materials. if you have purchased any books or study materials in the past, bring what you have.
Bring your log book if you have one!
Bring a note pad and some pens to take notes.
You may also want to bring a jacket, as our class is held in an airplane hangar.
We will make our presentations available to students to study after each course for review.

The classroom is located at:
Jake's Air Repair
22473 S Airport Rd
However if you put that into your GPS you may get lost!
Continue down S Airport Rd. (Some maps call this side of the airport Columbia, and some call is Sonora.
S Airport Rd is a dead end Rd that takes cars to the south and west side of the airport.
When continuing down S. Airport Rd, you will see the airport on your right side.
Pass a few hangars and a county office building.
There will be a stretch of chain link fence with an open gate and a green sigh that says "Learn to Fly Here".
Enter the airport through that gate, turn left along the airplane taxiway and continue straight and park next to the other cars.
If you have questions, feel free to call. The phone gets turned off at 6pm so don't be late!
