Learn to fly before getting to flight school
Flight Training is very difficult and most students who start the journey to becoming pilots, unfortunately, don't finish.
If you are not well prepared for flight school, you will struggle significantly. The more you struggle, the more expensive it becomes as you have to keep repeating ground classes and retaking flight lessons. The key to ensuring this doesn't happen is to attend our Ground School and Simulator Flying Classes in Lagos, Nigeria. During these ground school classes, you will be taught by our certified FAA, SACAA, EASA or TCAA Flight Instructors. The objective of these classes is to teach you what you will learn at flight school, prior to you arriving there. This will enable you to learn and master all the theoretical and practical elements of your training in Nigeria, without pressure. This will save you time and money and will make your experience at flight school easier, significantly increasing your chances of success.
These classes will be held in Lagos, Nigeria and will be FREE for all students enrolled on our Pilot Mentorship Programme.
For those not enrolled on our mentorship programme, these classes will be paid classes.
Note: Assistance with accommodation can be provided if needed.
We have 2 types of classes:
1. Normal classes
We have two types of normal classes. You either attend our 3-week preparation courses which are foundational classes to prepare you for flight school or you attend our FULL PPL Groundschool which is one month. During the Full PPL Groundschool, everything is covered in depth with credit being given on arriving at flight school. In both normal classes, there is a maximum of 10 students per class with classes held Monday - Friday, 9 am to 4 pm
2. FLEXIBLE Classes
These classes are flexible and suitable for those who work or who can't attend a course for 3 weeks at a stretch.
You pay the same amount as the normal classes but you can distribute your classes over the period of 1 month by booking slots that are convenient for your schedule. For example, you may choose to book 2 hours on a Monday, 1 hour on a Thursday and the whole day on a Saturday.
During the ground school portion of the program, you will be taught by certified FAA, SACAA, EASA or TCAA Flight Instructors.
First, you will learn all the theoretical subjects you will encounter at flight school including:
Principles of Flight
Flight Planning & Performance,
In addition to the theory classes you will also get practical experience and be taught how to fly using our state-of-the-art flight simulators. You will learn how to take off, land, navigate and perform various flight manoeuvres such as stalls, steep turns and engine failures. Our simulator can convert between analogue round gauges) and G1000 glass cockpit to replicate whatever type of aircraft you will be flying at your individual flighr school.
What are people saying about the Our Ground Classes?
"I can’t remember the last time I actually had fun learning! My entire experience was great and the instructor is so patient and kind that he really cares about you learning, so there’s no way that you won’t understand what is being taught, even if you’re a slow learner. I came into this course unsure if I would actually ever be able to fly a plane, and now I can take off, set a course for a circuit, and come back around to land the plane and all of my peers can do the same thing as well! If you’re thinking about joining this course, even if you’re not sure about being a pilot, stop sitting on the sidelines and join this amazing course, today."
"This course prepares you for anything and everything you'll experience when you go for your flight training as it was structured to answer every single questions and fear I had before now. The instructor understands what it takes to prepare any student to go out there and fly. I had doubted my ability often times before this class, but once I got going with our instructor Captian Shola there was no looking back! Captain Zino is a fantastic mentor (to say the very least ) and I’ll 101% recommend this class to all aspiring pilots as you won’t believe the level of Knowledge you’d gain from this!! Give it a go!"
"The three-week ground school and simulator course was amazing and full of impact. Right from day one to the very last day there was never a day I came to Zino Aviation and left without learning something new. I only wish I spent more time there! This course has helped me understand what to expect in flight school, so I want to say a very big thank you to Zino Aviation and I would definitely recommend this course to others."
