Product Description

Going for your Airplane Private Pilot license?—This course is for you!

Prepares you for the Private Pilot FAA knowledge exam (written) and practical exam (checkride: oral and flight test) including:

  • Night flight with night cross country training
  • Instrument flight training (Airplane only)
  • Radio navigation (VOR, DME, etc) (Airplane only)
  • Communications and operations at tower controlled airports (however, sport pilots can obtain this training and privileges, but this is in addition to the minimum sport pilot requirements)

To earn your Private Pilot Certificate to fly airplane, weight-shift control, or powered parachute light-sport aircraft you must pass two FAA tests: the knowledge (or written) test and a practical test Checkride which is an oral interview and a flight test with an FAA examiner. My Private Pilot Knowledge & Practical Test Prep Course will help you ace both of these tests.

"I operate my own flight school, Sport Aviation Center, so I know your time and money are precious. That's why my course was developed to save you both. This is not a weekend "cram course." It is a comprehensive home study program that will make preparing for your FAA exams more efficient, more fun and more complete." - Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE

Paul's Recommendation

All student pilots wanting an the inexpensive and easy way to ACE the FAA Knowledge Exam and the FAA Checkride, or Practical Test as the FAA calls it.


The Private Pilot Prepware gives you all the questions and all the answers to study, plus provides practice tests that you can take as many as you want. You can also receive an CFI endorsement to take the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Exam for FREE when you email the results of two practice exams that you received a score of 80% or better. That is an $80 value! The savings more than pays for the price of this test prep kit.

The Practical Test Standards (PTS) is what the Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE) uses to develop questions for the oral exam portion of the checkride and the specific flight maneuvers required for the checkride.

The Oral Exam Guide for Private Pilot contains the answers to the questions on all the areas of knowledge typically formulated by an FAA DPE. If you generally know the answers to the questions, or at least know where to find the answers in the book, you can be assured that you will pass the oral portion of the checkride.


The FAA written/computerized knowledge test can be taken any time before the checkride. Some student pilots study and take the knowledge exam before the flight training to get a jumpstart on the ground training and some flight concepts. Others take it when they are further along in their ground/flight training. Whichever you choose, the exam must be taken before the final FAA checkride. The “Practical Test Standards” book and Oral Exam Guide” are usually utilized during the last phase of the flight training in preparation for the checkride.


You can run the Private Pilot Prepware CD on your computer anywhere. You do not have to be connected to the internet. The Test Prep book, Oral Exam Guide, and Practical Test Standards book can be read anywhere and you can even take them with you as reference material during the checkride.


The FAA Knowledge Exam is not difficult to pass, but you do need to prepare for it. The checkride is quite involved and can be expensive, especially if you have to travel to meet your DPE. So, you want to only take it once. You don't want to fail and have to retake it. Study with this kit, and you'll be sure to pass.
