Practice Exam & Federal Aviation Regulations

The Cornell Aviation Society will be kicking off our second half of private pilot ground lessons in the series. Our next session will be on Federal Aviation Regulations. This session is for anyone who would like to gain credit toward their pilot license, and anyone interested in aviation.

We will also begin working on practice exam questions for the FAA private written exam, as well as discuss test taking strategies and resources for additional study help. Drop by this Friday afternoon to catch up on your preparation.
