PPL Groundschool

The 9 subjects are Air Law, Operational Proceedures, Navigation, Meteorology, Flight Planning and Performance, Communications, Aircraft (or Helicopter) General Knowledge, Principles of Flight and Human Performance. The amount of time on each subject depends on several things such as prior study, previous knowledge of the subject, (ie, If Renewing a Lapsed Licence) flying experience (ie, if converting a foreign licence or converting to/from Helicopters) etc but as a general rule the "lengthy" subjects, such as Met take 2 days and the "smaller" ones, such as Law, Comms, R/T a day, or so.
