Russell has expanded on the material in his popular glider training book, Glider Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, to develop these in-depth, comprehensive on-line ground school courses. Using slides, videos, and animation, Russell presents the material in a way that promotes understanding, and provides students with a working knowledge of the concepts involved.


To be a safe pilot requires flight skills, knowledge, and good judgment. A pilot must have a working knowledge of the glider, its systems, and the environment in which it operates. Memorizing the material to pass the FAA Knowledge Test is not sufficient. These courses create a strong foundation to allow students to become safe and proficient pilots.


More courses will continue to be added as they are developed.
