FAA Knowledge Test preparation software, featuring actual FAA questions.
GroundSchool is 100% compatible with whatever A&P college, school, or program you may be enrolled in. It's also ideally suited for self-paced / self-study individuals. No matter where you train or where you work, you will need to take and pass the written tests to get A&P your certificates--there's just no way around this. Fortunately, as thousands of how happily-certified mechanics will attest, our software makes the process as painless as possible.
GroundSchool costs about the same as some books, but is much more time effective
in terms of learning the material. Don't take our word for it, though - you can download it, free, from below, and see for yourself.
GroundSchool - Aviation Mechanic will help you prepare for any or all of the following tests:
AMG - Aviation Mechanic: General
AMP - Aviation Mechanic: Powerplant
AMA - Aviation Mechanic: Airframe
you're interested in becoming an Avionics Technician,
you'll probably want to take and pass the FCC GROL
(General Radio Operator's License) test. GROL certification
is not too difficult to obtain, but is very attractive
on the resume of *any* A&P. We have you covered
in terms of test prep - our FIVE
BY FIVE FCC Test prep software will prepare for you
the GROL--many people have successfully prepared for the GROL test using
our software in under a day's study!

GroundSchool - All FAA Written Test Titles for Microsoft Windows™ PCsInstallation GuideUsage Walkthrough
This single large download includes all of our FAA knowledge test prep titles - Private through FE/ATP + Mechanic [More Info].
We believe (and scientific study validates) that the interactive activity of test preparation, when combined with the sort of detailed supplementary and explanatory material that we offer, is an excellent way to thoroughly learn and internalize key aviation information.
We are test prep specialists and the experience of thousands upon thousands of pilots proves that our method works. We do not use test prep as a "hook", as some of our advertising-based competitors do, to sell you expensive but ineffective passive video-based courses and similar products that do little besides waste your time and drain your wallet.
Use our material and study hard - not just the questions and answers, but the reasoning and explanations too, and be on your way, in a highly time and cost efficient way, to knowledge test and aviation success!
GroundSchool is designed to help you learn the material and score highly on your test in the most efficient manner possible. Our software represents years of listening to and understanding the needs of pilots and mechanics. The program is designed with the singular goal of helping you learn the material so you can pass your FAA written test with a minimum of time and effort. Sure, there are some study methods that are cheaper (and many far more expensive!)... but only if your time is worth nothing. Our software is fast, efficient, and proven.
Here are a few screenshots from the software:
With our FAA Written Test Prep software, you don't have to worry about having an out of date version. Our authors work to update the data as FAA question pools change.
Groundschool has a built-in self-update feature that connects to our servers and makes sure that you have the latest and greatest versions of the software and data soon after they becomes available.
A "test bank" contains
one or more tests. For example, the "Private and Recreational Pilot" test bank will contain the Private
Pilot Airplane, Private Pilot Helicopter, and other tests. You'll be able to see the exact tests in each
of the test banks in the screens to follow. Here
are the available GroundSchool test banks:
For the Professional Pilot of the future! One of our best Value
FAA written test prep packages. This is for those really focused on a career in aviation. This package includes
both the Takeoff and FlightLevel Bundles combined.
For the Professional Pilot of the future who also wants to operate in the dynamic Sport Pilot world! Our Best Value
FAA written test prep package. This is for those really focused on a career in aviation but who also love it enough and want the 'future proofing' security of also getting a
Sport Pilot license(s). This package everything from the Takeoff, Sport Pilot, and FlightLevel Bundles combined.
Complete preparation for the three written / knowledge tests (General, Airframe, and Powerplant) that you'll need to take and pass to get
get an FAA A&P certificate. Includes access to all three A&P test banks. Please note: choosing this is the same as choosing a "pick 3"
bundle above and then selecting the mechanic tests from there.
This is for purchasing the Military Competence test banks (Military Competence Airplane and Helicopter - MCA and MCH and/or Military Competence Instructor (MCI)) only. Purchase this option if you are a military pilot wishing to obtain your FAA civilian commercial pilot and/or flight instructor certificate(s) on the basis of your military experience. See the Military Competence page for full details.
This is for purchasing the prep for the Fundamentals of Instruction (FOI) test only. This is for people who are sure that they need
ONLY the FOI prep. Most flight and ground instructor candidates should NOT get this, but rather the complete CFI test bank that includes all the flight/ground instructor tests plus the FOI.
To be clear: any purchase that includes
at no extra charge, so that if you selected as a title either as a 'single test bank' or part of the pick 3 bundle, you'd get both CFI and FOI and it would
only count as one test bank. This "FOI only" option here is at a lower price for those who know that they will only ever need FOI.
"Just completed the test today with a 96%...your app is outstanding." - RT, GroundSchool Mechanic User
"By using your test-prep software and audio files I am currently carrying a 4.0 average in my A&P school." - JR, Arkansas Northeast College
software was a fantastic study guide. Just to let you know I only
had to take my Airframe and General. I scored 96% on my Airframe
and a 98% on my General. The this is a close to the actual test
format that I have seen. It made me feel very confident going
in to take the tests. Keep up the good work and I'll be recommending
you to every aspiring A&P. Sincerely, JC - Orlando, Florida"

"I was surprised at how EXACT this content is and how much it really helped me prepare for the test. After only four days (averaging 6 hours a day) of studying, I scored a 98% on the powerplant test... It took me 12 minutes to complete the actual FAA exam. I am very impressed with your product and highly recommend this software to anyone trying to complete their A & P tests."
"After studying with your program, I scored a 98 on my Aviation Mechanic General Test. It was a great help and saved me from many additional hours that I would have spent with a traditional written study guide" - JS

for checking out the software! Good luck on your test, and blue
"I believe that your product is
ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT. I has been a joy to work
with. All the more so due to your very prompt
response to my questions.
I was about to order the
[competitor's product] when I noticed
your product. Because it was downloadable, I
could start practicing right away. And, the
price was right. I’m a 64 year old 1000 hour
private pilot (1963) with instrument rating
(1966) who suddenly decided to get my Commercial
and CFII as a retirement vocation. I don’t learn
as fast as I did 40 years ago. GroundSchool has
been a great learning and practicing tool." -
"I will tell you that I think your
software is a wonderful product and I have
personally recommended it to many students at
[FBO] ground school classes... in fact as a
result of using your program, my wife blew by
the other students in her class! This has been a
tremendous confidence builder for her as she was
somewhat intimidated by the other students (all
male) Kind of fun to watch their faces when she
completes a multiple chapter review in 1/4 of
the time they took. Now, they make comments
during the correction like..." well I had answer
A but [wife's name] has answer B and I'm sure
she has the right answer "
We're having a
great time with your software even I use it to
keep myself fresh... Thanks a bunch, best 30
bucks I ever spent!" -
