Part of Spartan College’s total integration methodology will require the use of an iPad with a specially tailored flight program consisting of lessons, tutorials, and tests. Each lesson is designed to teach a specific subject to a level of proficiency, then test to validate knowledge.
The ground portion of the flight program is taught and monitored by a Senior Flight Instructor who guides students to mastery of subject matter supplemented by videos, websites, and FAA documents. After mastering the ground lesson, students apply their new-found knowledge to the maneuvering or flight portion of the program. Spartan College employs a variety of training devices to compliment actual flight. Cockpit Procedure Trainers (CPT) and Advanced Aviation Training Devices (AATD), such as Frasca and Redbird simulators, help students gain experience with different maneuvers while on the ground, then apply learned concepts in the air.
