You may know someone who attempted to do private pilot ground school online. The courses often consist of reading pages of material, followed by quizzes to see if you learned the material. It can be a challenge to stay motivated and it’s not unusual for student pilots to give up.
It happens at brick and mortar classes as well when hard copy books are used. The amount of material can be overwhelming, and to some people, especially millennials — those born in the late 1990s — the book work seems archaic. No wonder the drop-out rate tops 80%.
Jason Schappert, the founder of MzeroA.com, an online ground school, has beaten those odds and, in fact, reversed them by embracing the digital age.
