Introduction to RAS Online Ground Schools

Roberts' Aviation Services (RAS) has adopted a different method of ground schools for all FAA certifications.  Traditional ground school courses focus primarily on the written examination.  RAS goes beyond the written examination!

Why?

Because the FAA is placing equal emphasis on the knowledge, risk management, and flight skills areas of flight training.  Traditional flight training emphasized the flight skills and the knowledge areas were necessary to pass the written examination.  As a result, the written exam was treated as a speed bump on the road to a pilot certification by many flight instructors and trainees.

Beginning in 2018 through 2019 and finishing in the next couple of years, the FAA has been revising the certification standards for pilots.  These standards had been known as Practical Test Standards in the past.  The practical test under those standards primarily consisted of the flight test and the related practical skills necessary to operate an aircraft.

The FAA is in the process of replacing the Practical Test Standards with the Airman Certification Standards.  These standards place equal emphasis on the knowledge, risk management, and flight skills areas necessary for the safe operation of aircraft in the National Airspace System.

Roberts' Aviation Services has implemented and incorporated the Airman Certification Standards into our ground school curriculum.  What does this mean to the overall training environment?

The trainee will be learning all aspects of the flight curriculum as a package including the knowledge, the risk management and aeronautical decision making skills along with the knowledge of how the aircraft is affected in flight, which aids in the acquisition of the flight skills.

As a result of this approach, the trainee will find that the more expensive portions of flight training, the time in the aircraft with an instructor, will be more productive and hence less costly.

Air Transport Pilot

The Air Transport Pilot ground school prepares the participant for what is essentially the doctoral of the flying community.

This same examination package is used for pilots as well as the aircraft dispatcher candidate.  The ATP is usually issued to persons who are already flying for an airline, however any person who has the required number of hours and meets the qualifications can take the ATP practical test whether planning to fly for hire or just getting the certificate and rating to show proficiency.

Using the E6-B Flight Computer

The E6-B flight computer is a slide rule type of device that is used to make calculations of aviation related computations.  While electronic versions of the E6-B are in existence and used quite extensively, many pilots find that these suddenly cease working during practical tests and checkrides, usually through instructors or examiners disabling the electronic devices.

While a lot of pilots agree that the E6-B is burdensome to deal with in making the computations, it is still better than doing the computations on paper which we will do as well since this will help you to understand how the Wizz Wheel got its name.  In addition, we will go over rules of thumb which can be used in flight to make computations quick and easy.  These will also be provided as a handout that can be printed by the participant.
