Calling all future pilots. Jasper County Airport will host a private pilot ground school that will run for four weekend days, scheduled for:

  • May 16th – starting 8 am cdt
  • May 17th – starting 8 am cdt
  • May 23rd – starting 8 am cdt
  • May 24th – starting 8 am cdt

The ground school will be taught by Thomas Sherringham, a Purdue graduate and one of the freelance flight instructors able to instruct in the airport’s new rental Cessna 172. Seating will be limited due to Covid-19 precautions. Anyone unable to make it to this course may have an opportunity to attend future courses at the airport. The course fee is targeted for $200-$250, but will depend ultimately on the number of students enrolled. 

The ground school will use free material found on the FAA’s website as well as text from Gleim. 

What to bring to class:

  • Notetaking supplies
  • Ipad (if available)
  • Personal snacks and drinks (as necessary)
  • A willingness to be challenged and learn new knowledge!
