Written Exam Accelerated Ground School Testimonials:

Pass your written FAA exam in 2 days!

Angela Bartley is an aviation education professional. I had the opportunity to participate in a recent weekend private pilot session she conducted. In my opinion, her presentation was as good as, and better, than any session I have had the opportunity to attend for a pre-test written private pilot workshop. I sent three older students who were having a hard time with self-study materials and they were well-pleased with the weekend results. She narrowed down the information needed to pass the private pilot exam to the "need to know" and helped the students discard the "extra material" not required to pass the private pilot exam. She is highly recommended if you are the type of individual that needs guidance versus self-study in passing written exams.
Wilson C. Grier, Flight Instructor, CFI/CFII/MEI/ATP

If you want to pass the FAA written exam and doubt your abilities I highly recommend the 2 day course offered by Angela Bartley. The class I attended was very small, 2 students, so the attention was very personal and responsive. The setting at Bowman Field at Central American Aviation was a nice touch, during the breaks you could watch the planes from Cessna Citations to Mooney Mites! In just two days I honed my skills and passed the Private Pilot written exam.
