Gary Jackson MBE

Without the forward leaning and innovative approach employed by Bristol Groundschool, I doubt I would have passed all 14 exams before the 31 Dec 20 transition deadline.  The instructors and support team have all been outstanding.

The material has also been excellent and broken down into easily manageable chunks.  The fact that I have managed to pass all exams first time with a 95% average pass mark despite a busy and unpredictable full-time military career is testament to the quality of the digital material.

The past 18 months have been the busiest and most challenging of my life and not just due to the pressures of ATPL Theory. In addition to commanding my team on overseas deployments to the Middle East, Asia and the Caribbean, I found myself at the centre of the UK’s response to COVID-19, supporting the construction of the NHS Nightingale Hospital London, designing potential mobile testing units and helping to deliver UK Covid-19 Mega labs.  Throughout all of this, the flexible and bitesize nature of the lessons and learning programme meant I could still continue my studies regardless of where I was or how busy.

Furthermore, the webinars and virtual revision weeks meant I still felt well prepared for each exam.
