Jeppesen Puts Private Pilot Course Online
Jeppesen has launched a new online training product with interactive content the company says was enhanced directly by customer feedback "to create the most comprehensive online private pilot training course on the market." The $240 training and test preparation course is the first in a series of courses the company plans to release. The already available Private Pilot course "fully prepares students to take the FAA written knowledge exam," and provides detailed flight and animated maneuvers lessons Jeppesen hopes will be used by both students and instructors. The online program is actually based on Jeppesen's private pilot textbook content and, through Jeppesen's Learning Center, tracks each user's progress so that a student's instructor can have access to the student's lesson work. That feature, according to Jeppesen, allows the instructor to examine the student's performance from the standpoint of specific questions to overall results. Jeppesen says its Private Pilot online course is available in three versions in an attempt to best match a student's learning environment.
According to the company's press release the three versions of Jeppesen's course are: a Part 61 Enhanced Ground School, Maneuvers, and Test Preparation version; a Part 61 with Stage Exams and Flight Lessons version; and a Part 141 with Stage Exams and Flight Lessons version.
