Private pilot ground school starts Feb. 4

Staff Writer

This upcoming week, KC will once again offer the Private Pilot Ground School, a 16-week course over the basics of aeronautical knowledge.

For those interested in a career as a pilot, the course is the basic ground school for the Federal Aviation Administration Private Pilot Certificate. It is required to know these fundamentals to obtain a private pilot certification.

Students will be instructed by Alan VanDoren, a certified flight instructor who introduced the idea to KC last year. VanDoren was also the director of flight at LeTourneau University beginning in 2008.

Students will cover the principles of flight, radio procedures, weather, navigation, aerodynamics and Federal Aviation Administration regulations and will be offered Monday evenings Feb. 4 through June 3.

The course costs $450 and the students will have PowerPoint and assignments available to them online. Students will receive a book and supply list at registration.

For more information, call Jan Washburn, administrative assistant for the dean of publice services/audit and records coordinator, at 903-983-8677.
