the addition of a Part 141 online ground school curriculum for the sport
pilot certificate and the instrument rating, training-materials provider
Gleim Publishing has expanded its online training library. These new
courses are in addition to the company’s widely used Part 141 online
private-pilot ground-school materials, which Gleim says are the
first-ever FAA-approved online Part 141 program.
The Gleim 141-approved online ground
school is overseen directly by the FAA to ensure the highest quality of
instruction. These courses are led by Gleim’s chief instructor and are
particularly useful for students who desire a classroom-style experience
without having to leave home.
Once users complete all course
requirements, they are provided with a knowledge test endorsement
allowing them to take their FAA knowledge test.
“Our online ground schools have
benefited over 14,000 users in the past seven years,” says company
President Dr. Irvin N. Gleim, “and with the addition of these
interactive Part 141-approved courses, we hope to train the next
generation of pilots in an easy, cost-effective manner.”
