Instrument And Commercial Courses To Be Offered
Aeronautical University's Worldwide Campus, through its Office of
Professional Education, is now offering two new online courses that
prepare students with the knowledge necessary for FAA Commercial
Pilot and/or FAA Instrument Rating flight training and written
These new courses join Embry-Riddle's online FAA Private Pilot
Ground School, a 15-week course that takes advantage of lessons
learned by Embry-Riddle over decades of pilot training.
The new Commercial Pilot and Instrument Rating ground schools
will also last 15 weeks, and new classes will start nearly every
month. An FAA-certified flight instructor oversees each online
course section, guides the students, and focuses the knowledge on
practical application in the cockpit. Through the use of online
technologies, students can now receive Embry-Riddle flight training
anywhere in the world, on their own schedules.
Other online aircraft-specific ground schools also exist for
most Boeing and Airbus aircraft.
