Jeppesen announced today the release of its new Private Pilot Online course. With the launch of this program Jeppesen continues to expand its innovative training product line, which also includes computer-based training for today’s latest avionics systems and a full selection of traditional textbooks. The entire Jeppesen Private Pilot Online course was built from the ground up using engaging, interactive content that maximizes learner retention. Jeppesen incorporated direct customer feedback, and decades of experience and leadership in aviation courseware to create the most comprehensive online private pilot training course on the market.

“The Jeppesen Private Pilot Online course fully prepares students to take the FAA written knowledge exam. Additionally, it provides detailed flight and animated maneuvers lessons that can be used effectively by both students and flight instructors. Since the course was developed using Jeppesen’s award-winning private pilot textbook content, students have the option of purchasing a textbook that parallels the online course,” said Kert Thielen, Jeppesen’s manager of Aviation Training Services and Aviation Courseware Development.

Jeppesen is offering three versions of the course: 1) A Part 61 Enhanced Ground School, Maneuvers, and Test Preparation version, 2) A Part 61 with Stage Exams and Flight Lessons version, and 3) A Part 141 with Stage Exams and Flight Lessons version. This version is designed for flight schools and universities to meet the more stringent FAR 141 requirements and includes all ground, maneuvers and flight lessons.

All versions are delivered on the Jeppesen Learning Center which tracks all students and instructors as they progress through the lessons and exams. Instructors have access to review all student work including lesson completions, exam results down to specific questions and overall school results.

This course is the first in a series of online courses that Jeppesen will release. Future releases will include a Sport Pilot Online course and an Instrument Pilot Online course.
