This course has been designed to provide basic cockpit familiarity and
is not geared toward preparing you to pass the FAA Private Pilot written
exam or flight check. Therefore, any basic Ground School course will be
sufficient to allow you to benefit from the flying portion. The Flight
Instruction (FI) consists of 12 hours flying the airplane and 8 hours
observing your flying partner fly the airplane. You will need to be
available for 8-10 consecutive half-days once you start the flight
instruction. NOTE: the weather may affect the flight traiing schedule.

The prerequisite to participate in TOFLY is a Ground School Course. Please contact Frank Gutierrez x53212 for the Aardvark Aeronautics Ground School schedule. Once you have completed Ground School, please add your name to the TOFLY waitlist via LMS (Lerning Managment System). The TOFLY instructor will contact the student to schedule a session.

This program is not designed to make a pilot out of you but rather to
help you better understand the cockpit environment and work loads so
that you can design and build more useful and user friendly instruments.
