Episode #43 - ATC Clearance, TFRs, Fuel Requirements & Maintenance

Welcome to the Part Time Pilot Audio Ground School Podcast! This podcast takes studying ground school for student pilots to a whole new level by providing students with every single lesson included in the Part Time Pilot Private Pilot & IFR Ground Schools! Completely Free! On top of that, VIP podcast students/members of the online ground school (PPL or IFR) get ad free episodes and BONUS episodes like Mock Checkrides, Checkride Prep, Expert Interviews and more!

The #1 reason student pilots never end up becoming a private pilot is NOT due to money. The real reason is actually deeper than that. Yes, flight training is expensive. But every student pilot knows this and budgets for it when they decide to do it.

The actual #1 reason a student pilot fails is because they do not have a good, fundamental understanding of the private pilot knowledge they are meant to learn in ground school.

You see when a student does not have a good grasp of this knowledge they get to a point in their flight training where their mind just can't keep up. They start making mistakes and having to redo lessons. And THAT is when it starts getting too expensive.

This audio ground school is meant for the modern day student pilot... aka the part time student pilot. Let's face it, the majority of us have full time responsibilities on top of flight training. Whether it is a job, kids, family, school, etc. we all keep ourselves busy with the things that are important to us. And with today's economy we have to maintain that job just to pay for the training. The modern day student pilot is busy, on the go and always trying to find time throughout his or her day to stay up on their studies. The audio ground school allows them to consume high quality content while walking, running, working out, sitting in traffic, traveling, or even just a break from the boring FAR/AIM or ground school lecture.

Did I meant high quality content? The audio ground school is taken straight out of the 5-star rated Part Time Pilot Online Ground School that has had over 2000 students take and pass their Private Pilot & IFR exams with only 2 total students failing the written. That’s a 99.9% success rate! And the 2 that failed? We refunded their cost of ground school and helped them pass on their second attempt. We do this by keeping ground school engaging, fun, light and consumable. We have written lessons, videos, audio lessons, live video lessons, community chats, quizzes, practice tests, flash cards, study guides, eBooks and much more.

Part Time Pilot was created to be a breath of fresh air for student pilots. To be that flight training provider that looks out for them and their needs. So that is just what we are doing with this podcast.


Episode 43: 
This is a bit of a longer one because I wanted to get through 4 different lessons so that we can finish up the section on limitations and more regulations! And we did it! In this episode we cover ATC Clearance, TFRs, Fuel Requirements and Maintenance. Most of these are short lessons but in the Maintenance lesson we go over all the preventative maintenance you are a private pilot who owns your own aircraft are allowed to perform!
