Why choose Bristol Groundschool

Bristol Groundschool have been training professional pilots for more than twenty years using the  blended (modular) learning concept, where several learning methods are used together in combination. Your course will start with a self-study phase using state-of-the art computer training and traditional manuals as an optional extra.  In addition to telephone, email and forum support from our instructors and support team.

During the self-study phase, you will be encouraged to attend our popular weekend accelerator courses and, at the end of each module and just before the exams, there is a revision course to tie together everything you have learned.

At Bristol Groundschool we are proud of everything we do, and our pride is reflected in the success our students enjoy. Pass rates regularly exceed 95%, most students pass everything on their first attempt and go on through the flying phases to forge successful careers in aviation. In fact, when you attend your first job interview there’s a high chance the Training Captain sitting opposite you will once have been one of our students.

As an on-site EASA examination centre we also have the benefit of regularly updating our question bank with the latest CAA exam questions following student feedback.

I really can’t speak highly enough of Bristol Groundschool, from the course material that actually makes dull subjects interesting, to the very capable and superb instructors at the revision weeks. Thank you.” Mark Flanagan
