Q: How much is Sweet Aviation Instrument Ground School?
A: Our cost is $499. This includes all 12 weeks of instruction and a Gleim Instrument Ground School Kit.

Q: Is Instrument Ground School all I need to receive an instrument rating?
A: No, much like a driver’s license, there is ground knowledge and a practical portion of flight training.

Q: Do I need to finish Instrument Ground School before I start flying in instrument conditions?
A: No, you do not. We actually encourage you to begin your instrument training flight concurrently with your Instrument Ground School so that you will be able to apply what you are learning in the class to the aircraft.
