Why should a student study with Gotham instead of doing ground school at their local flight school?:

First, Your typical flight school does not train enough students with your same schedule needed to run a full ground school. If you are lucky they might have a test prep class one weekend.
Second, Many typical instructor are not particularly interested in dedicating the time necessary to design and teach a comprehensive ground school.
Third, You are in the City. Your instructor is at the airport. Try this experiment: ask your instructor to travel to the City to teach your course. Gotham teaches classes in Manhattan.
Finally, we have designed our course to save you expensive flight time during your flight training by reviewing material in the classroom rather than in the airplane. The more knowledge you have going into your flight training, the more streamlined the training can be.

We are not affiliated with any one flight school--our job is to educate you and introduce you to the world of flight, not sell you on one training model or one methodology.

FAA regulations set the minimal aeronautical experience at 35 to 40 hours for a private pilot certificate (depending on whether you train under part 141 or part 61, respectively).

Very few students actually get anywhere near the minimums. In fact, according to the FAA, the average number of hours for persons without a hearing impairment completing the private pilot certification requirements is approximately 75 hours.
