Jeppesen GFD Private Pilot Kit - Part 61

Jeppesen Private Pilot Kits, developed for both FAR Part 61 and FAR Part 141 training programs, are the most complete private pilot training packages available. Purchasing a kit is an economical and convenient way to obtain current, comprehensive, and integrated materials that will make the journey to your private pilot certificate successful.

Rather than just teaching facts, GFD concentrates on an application-oriented approach to pilot training. The comprehensive and complete system emphasizes the why and how of aeronautical concepts when they are presented. As you progress through training, you'll find that the revolutionary GFD System leads you through essential aeronautical knowledge and exposes you to a wide variety of interesting and useful information which will enhance and expand your understanding of the world of aviation. Although each element of GFD may be used separately, using all of the individual components in a systems approach can maximize the effectiveness of the materials.

What you'll get:

Private Pilot Manual
The Private Pilot Manual is your primary source for initial study and review on your journey to becoming a private pilot. The intuitive organization and colorful presentation of the manual helps you learn quickly from the start. The text contains complete and concise explanations of the fundamental concepts every private pilot needs to know, with the subjects arranged in a logical manner that builds upon previously introduced topics. You can expand your knowledge of specific subjects and the world of aviation by exploring the Discovery Insets strategically placed throughout the chapters. To help you understand how your mind and body function during flight, human factors principles are presented in Human Element Insets. Throughout the manual, concepts that directly relate to FAA test questions are described in FAA Question Insets. To help you review material more effectively, key terms are highlighted throughout the text and listed at the end of each section along with a checklist that summarizes important concepts. Additionally, you can evaluate your understanding of material by completing the associated questions found at the end of each section.

Private Pilot Maneuvers Manual
This Private Pilot Maneuvers manual uses step-by-step procedure descriptions and over 100 full-color figures to help you visualize and understand each maneuver you perform in the airplane. Skill Enhancement Insets provide expanded instructional guidance, helpful hints, explanations of common errors, and rules of thumb that can help you perform each maneuver precisely the first time. To prepare for your private pilot checkride, you can refer to the associated FAA practical test standards presented with each maneuver description. In addition, exercises allow you to evaluate your understanding of the maneuvers. For easy reference, the maneuvers are numbered and grouped into categories based on similar operational characteristics. The spiral-bound design allows the manual to lay flat for ease of study and instruction, whether you are on the ground or in flight.

Airman Certification Standards: Private Pilot Airplane
The Airman Certification Standards (ACS) is the guide for students, instructors, and FAA-designated examiners to know what applicants must know, do, and consider for their FAA Knowledge Exam (written test) and practical test (checkride) to earn their pilot certificate or rating. The goal of the airman certification process is to ensure the applicant possesses knowledge and skill consistent with the privileges of the certificate or rating being exercised, as well as the ability to manage the risks of flight in order to act as pilot in command.

Private Pilot Airmen Knowledge Guide
This test guide contains all of the FAA recreational and private pilot airplane knowledge test questions, along with the correct answers, detailed explanations, and study references. Subject areas are organized by topic and coordinated with the Private Pilot Manual. The three-hole punched, perforated pages provide flexibility so you can select and remove specific pages for effective study. A unique sliding mask for self-testing, as well as full-color charts identical to those on the FAA test, are included with the test guide.

Pre-Solo Written Exam
This exam is designed to address the aeronautical knowledge subject areas that are required by the Federal Aviation Regulations prior to solo flight, including applicable regulations, local airspace and airport procedures, as well as the flight characteristics and operational limitations of your training airplane.

Student Slide-Graphic Computer (E6B)
Full function, full size. Perfect for the budget-conscious student. Constructed of rugged plasticized composite material. It conforms to the instructions and examples in Jeppesen manuals, workbooks and audiovisual programs. Comes with instruction manual and zip-lock carrying case.

PN-1 Navigation Plotter
The classic opaque background allows easy identification of WAC and Sectional chart scales. The laminated design protects visibility of printed scales for years to come. The scales are calibrated in statute and nautical miles. Size: 12-1/4 x 4 inches

Pilot Logbook
Designed for lifetime durability, this 96-page permanent record offers large flight time category spaces, arranged according to FAA regulations. Its become the standard of the industry. Its printed on -easy-eye- green pages that resist -bleed through-, and bound with a high quality, scuff-resistant cover.

FAR/AIM Manual - Paper
An excellent study or reference source, the new, larger format includes 14 CFR 135 with complete pilot/controller glossary. Changes are conveniently indicated. Including FAR Parts 1, 43, 61, 67, 71, 73, 91, 97, 119, 133, 135, 141, 142, HMR 175 and NTSB 830, the FAR/AIM uses special study lists to direct students to the appropriate FARs. You can check students' understanding of FARs with exercise questions tailored for private, instrument, commercial, and helicopter. A free Update Summary is available on Jeppesen's web site.

Student Kit Bag
Not only does this bag contain all of your private pilot training materials, it is also an excellent first flight bag. Numerous outside pockets help you organize such essential items as your charts, flight computer, fuel tester, plotter, and flashlight, as well as pens and pencils, while a convenient double zipper opening provides easy access to flight materials inside the bag. Carry your supplies in comfort with the wide removable shoulder strap. Reinforced bottom. Constructed with durable PVC backed 600 denier poly.

Quality Flight Training Materials
by Brian from Olathe KS USA 

Pros: All Inclusive
Cons: Out of Date
Review: I have been pleased with this kit. Everything is good quality and came in good condition. The bag was a nice bonus! My only complaint is that the materials are a little out of date (I purchased 8/2015 and received 2014 materials). While the FAA does not change very much, they release updates to materials multiple times per year. As of yet, I have not come across any places where this has caused an issue. Overall, I am glad I chose this kit!

wish it had review questions/study guide for written test.
by peter from Laramie WY USA 

Cons: main manual is schitzophrenic
Review: i read a 1970's Jepesson manual that was much easier for me to read than the current version. I passed written when 15 years old, and had less trouble with that manual than current Jeppeson manual. so i have read 3 manuals total, and find the current Jep manual in this kit is the least to my liking for ease of reading.

Pros: Just the right amount of material
Cons: Haven't found any yet
Review: The course mirrors my flight instruction perfectly. Everything I learn in the air is covered in the material. Although the size of the text book seems a little daunting, it is very easy to read and comprehend. The sample tests at the end of every section are the perfect for review and reinforcement.

All you need/want to know, masterfully presented - great product!
by David from Morganton NC USA 

Pros: Overall quality of the product
Cons: The FARS - there needs to be a Jeppesen-authored abridged version!
Review: Conveys fairly detailed info clearly and uses illustrations/graphics and sidebars to make it more comprehensible and interesting. Lively and exciting - not dry and tedious like a lot of textbooks . I find myself wanting to read more, like a best-selling page turner. The organization, writing, and visuals are first-rate. Haven't come up with any criticisms so far!

I would buy this product again
by Paul from Becida MN USA 

Pros: specific, to the point information.
Cons: I have not used any other ground school curriculum. I cannot compare this to any other.
Review: Special notice areas in the chapters are great, along with the review questions. Charts and illustrations are also very good. All this helps to reinforce the important parts of each chapter. I am considering purchasing the DVD set, as there is a a lot of information and this may be another avenue to reinforce it.

by Mark from Highland, IN 
Review: The Jeppesen Part 61 kit is GREAT! Definately worth the extra money! The fundamentals and information are presented in a way that one builds on top of another. In other words you won't get lost! Pictures, Graphs, FAA Knowledge Test questions are highlighted, and Real World Aviation History that relates to what you are reading about, in that chapter. The pictures and graphs really help you visualize the text you are reading. Each chapter has a quiz at the end which I thought was a good learning tool as well. I was very pleased with my purchase and's low price made it even better.

by A Customer from Nevada 

Pros: Organized and Explained Well
Cons: Not much
Review: The books in this pack are great. They cover most of what you need. Every book is useful and every one you will more than likely go all the way through while studying for the three tests to a license. Organization is key to studying for these exams too, and this is supremely organized. There are just some little things here and there that are not fully explained, but a quick question to your flight instructor fixes that problem.

Great Kti
by A Customer from Aiken SC USA 

Review: Great Kit for your ground lessons. If I had it to do over again, I would probably order the Jeppesen DVDs or the DVD kit from sportys. But, I am old school and don;t mind reading. Anything Jeppesen is worth the money and this kit has EVERYTHING that you need to start your flying lessons.

by Mark from Lewiston ID USA 

Pros: Clearly written, good diagrams and pictures, helpful tips.
Cons: A bit fast on the practical lessons, but can be broken down.
Review: Although frequently criticized for being too fundamental, the books, flight computer and plotter are completely adequate for student preparation. I am sharing this kit with a person who has zero flight experience and it serves the purpose nicely... without overwhelming those with less aeronautical experience.

Pretty pictures, minimal information, not geared toward a learner
by Rocky G from Madison WI USA 

Pros: Appealing look to a young teenager
Cons: Minimal info that is needed, not presented in a way that induces learning
Review: The Jeppesen Private pilot Manual is full of pictures, but most are there for the "look of the book" instead of for teaching. Its presentation (look) is geared to the 10th grade level. More thought (and space) to the printed text with the learner in mind, would have made this a better book. I recommend Rod Machado's Private Pilot Handbook instead (discovered at the library). It is written in such a way that you will learn (and truly understand) the material automatically by virtue of reading it. Concepts are clearly explained rather than just being there for you to memorize while scratching your head. The Jeppesen is presented in a "here, memorize this, and look at this pretty but unhelpful picture." Machado's book is also about 1/2 the price of the Jeppesen.

Very concise and informative, easy to follow and understand
by Judy from Gainesville GA USA 

Pros: Very well put together
Cons: none so far through chapter 5
Review: This book is simple enough for a child yet never feels like you are reading a childs book. The illustrations, descriptions and everything has been very simple to follow and very easy to understand. I have never had a book to be so well written that I can understand it without having to refer to another book to answer this books questions.

Review: A great value from This Part 61 Kit from Jeppesen is a whole lot more. The Jeppesen GFD (Guided Flight Discovery) Private Pilot Kit is a complete system for learning everything you need to get your Private Pilot Certificate. The text and study materials are thoroughly and thoughtfully presented with full color photos and graphics. You will need to add very little to this kit as it includes: a log book, an E6B flight computer, an PN-1 navigation plotter and more. Get your medical/student certificate, add your favorite CFI and flight training and you will reach your goal of Private Pilot.
