The Full-Time Ground School option enables students to concentrate on studying the four most difficult subjects and complete the other three subjects as part of a self-study program. This option has proven to be very successful and popular with students, as it maximises their chance of success and minimises time spent away from home. The Full-Time Theory Course involves six weeks for ATPL(A) and five and half weeks for ATPL(H) of intensive full-time study, working from 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
While time spent in class is intensive, our course format allows as much time as possible for many detailed revision tests. On completion of each subject module you can attempt Advanced Flight Theory’s Practice CyberExams before attempting the actual CASA PEXO Exams.

Our Guarantee To You…

If after attending our full time course, you are not totally prepared to sit the CASA PEXO Exams, or you are having difficulty with any aspect of the course, you are welcome to return and resit all or any part of the course you have paid for once, with no additional course fee.

Studying Advanced Flight Theory’s Distance Learning Course is an excellent way to bring study direct to your home. This makes it possible to adjust your study and learning schedule to fit your individual requirements. Flexible delivery allows you to fit study around work, social or family commitments.

Because all the notes you are provided with have been specially written by AFT, should you decide to change from Distance Learning Course and attend a Full-Time Ground School Course, you can be guaranteed a seamless changeover.

On completion of each subject you attempt Advanced Flight Theory’s Internet Based Practice CyberExams before attempting the CASA PEXO Exams.
Our Course Fees include all Course Notes, Revision Tests, Practice CyberExams and Answer Sheets. There is no requirement to purchase any other textbooks as all relevant references and manuals are included. You will need to provide your own set of Airservices Publications, Charts and Navigation Equipment.
