DCS School of Flying has chosen to use the Sporty's Ground Instruction On-Line Course.

The benefit of this course is that you can proceed at your own pace, moving more quickly through things that you understand, and being able to review topics that are giving you more trouble.  We have found this to be a much more cost effective method than instructing all of the 'Ground School' lessons in person. 

Of course, your instructor will review and reinforce the topics that you learn in your Ground Lessons, and expect you to come to class fully prepared and ready to ask any questions that you have about the material.

The better you are prepared for your days' lesson, the less time (and thus money) will be spent ensuring that you understand the information!
