Gleim Private Pilot Test Prep Online Software

The Gleim FAA Test Prep is a unique, easy-to-use program that enables you to study and pass your FAA knowledge test (written exam). The Gleim FAA Test Prep Software contains all of the same study outlines and figures that are in the Gleim FAA Knowledge Test books while also enhancing your learning experience by providing customized study and test sessions in both the Gleim format and the major computer-testing vendors' formats.

For Students:

  • A complete library of FAA charts and figures contained within the program, with on-screen drawing capabilities and a true course calculation feature

  • Improved performance analysis charts and graphs to track your study progress

For Instructors:

  • More ways to create and customize tests
  • Print options that allow you to design and create quizzes for your students
  • One comprehensive program to meet all of your students' needs

Please note: the Gleim Test Prep courses only contain the study questions for fixed wing powered airplanes. If you are practicing for a rotocraft, glider, or LTA test, we recommend that you take a look at the ASA PrepWare. The PrepWare courses contain the questions and answers for all the different ratings.

Also note that this is an ONLINE exam only.  It cannot be used offline.  If you want software that you can download and install for offline use, we recommend the ASA PrepWare.

  • Thorough answer explanations for correct AND incorrect choices to cement understanding
  • Study Session option for immediate feedback

Repetitive questions
by A Customer from Calabasas CA USA 

Pros: Good for practicing.
Cons: Gets old quick. Expensive for what it is.
Review: This program is great for practice. The VOR sections aren't too helpful. The questions are generally repetitive despite their advertised (700+) questions. Your overall score seems to improve simply because you've seen the question before.

Good Prep Program for Students
by Big Bud from PLUMAS LAKE CA USA 

Pros: The ability to do topic specific practice exams and the way the program explains right and wrong answers is very helpful
Cons: Price. You can buy Sporty's Study Buddy iPad app for only $9. It does almost the exact thing.
Review: If you have the Jeppesen Private Pilot text book and you have the asa 2012 Private Pilot Test Prep manual, you have everything that is in the Gleim software. So why buy the software too? Because it puts you into the test mode vs reading questions from a book and then answering them, and then checking the answers and then going back and focusing on what you're deficient in .... it goes on and on.
The Gleim looks almost exactly as the FAA test does. This helps you get the feel of what you will be doing in the exam. It also allows you to study specific areas and do mini tests. You can then do practice exams that mimic the real thing. I ended up doing several practice topic exams until I became proficient in that topic and then would move on. I then did about 10-12 full practice exams before I sat for the real thing and it help immensely. I ended up getting only 2 questions wrong ... which was my own fault because the questions that I got wrong I simply misread or accidentally clicked the wrong button. No need to rush ... if you are prepared for the exam it will probably take you between 30-45 minutes and you have something like 2.5 hrs.

by Susan from Hayward WI USA 
Pros: Clear explanations, excellent appearance on the computer screen, the ability to create a new test from questions answered incorrectly.
Cons: I couldn't figure out how to use the maps.
Review: This is actually the second time I've ordered the Test Prep hardward. 3 years ago I took the written, passed with a 98, flew for a little while and quit. Now I am back,and ready for the Checkride, but need to take the written test again. I can't think of a better way to study for the test, it's such a huge help.

extremely helpful
by whirlwind from Madison WI USA 

Pros: actual questions from faa tests, covers all aspects of material
Cons: some questions were repeated too much
Review: I was very pleased with this product.  I bought it a couple weeks before I took the FAA written test, and studying with it beforehand paid off.  What I retained from using the prep software boosted my score at least 10 points than if I hadn't used it.  I wish I would've used this from the beginning of my flight training. highly recommended.

I liked it, a lot.
by Lon from Santa Monica CA USA 

Pros: The practice sessions look and operate are exactly like the real test.
Cons: None that I saw
Review: I used this software for the last stage of my preparation for my Private Pilot Knowledge Test. It helped me focus on topics that needed more attention. I also used the companion Gleim prep book, but I found that I was able to put in more hours of concentration using the software than using the book alone. Ultimate result: a 98. The one question I missed was in the software; it wasn't new to me. But I answered the question correctly the first time around, while using the software, so it didn't show up again. And then, when I took the real test, I over-analyzed the question and answered it incorrectly, instead of answering it correctly as my initial instinct would have had me answer it.

A necessity for anyone taking the PPL exam
by Julie from New York NY USA 

Pros: easy to use and many varieties of ways to test yourself.
Review: Gleim's software is flexible and delivers every promise it makes. Without a shadow of a doubt I would not have passed my test with such a high score had I not used the PPL test prep software diligently. What I found so helpful was the feature of being able to select not only the units to test yourself on, but the # of questions which to be tested. I liked studying cumulatively and this software enables you to select and customize your testing/study sessions nicely. A must buy for anyone who is taking this exam. I was hesitant to spend that money at first but I'm glad I did.

I'd be lost without this.
by Joel from Los Angeles CA USA 

Pros: Ease of use, flexibility, realistic environment reproduction.
Cons: Figures/illustrations are poor in quality
Review: For anyone who wants to learn all of the material on a written exam, or those who just want to ensure they're knowledge is updated, this software is great. It is particularly helpful for those who like to sit down at their computer and have it "quiz" them. The flexibility of the quizzes is outstanding. Randomization, mimicking CATS, or standard FAA section order--it does it all. It is even possible to print them, for a standard sit-down test. (Sans computer.) The one area that really annoys me about this software, however, is that the charts utilized are of very poor quality. When looking at graphs, for example, it is almost impossible to read any of the text, despite the ability to change the zoom level. (That only distorts the text more, adn causes the lines to be come jagged.) The digitization of the figures should have been done at a higher quality. The results when printing them are a bit better, but still not nearly as good as figures from other course prep. materials.

A Must Have! For sured success in passing FAA exam!
by joseph from Deland, FL USA 

Pros: Easy to work with, self - tayloring, straight forward!
Cons: The whole registering on-line bit/calling to make sure you own cd
Review: It was everything I expected and more! You can customize your test or study guides, ie. just one chapter or a few or all chapters. I used the book in conjuction with this cd and it made the FAA test real easy, I scored an 95% on the first try. I will be purchasing more cd's for future ratings/certificates.

Great learning tool. This was my second copy. (lost the first one)
by Daniel from HODGES SC USA 

Pros: Contains every question in the FAA written exam.
Cons: Can only down load it twice.
Review: The software was just what I expected from Gleim. It is a very handy tool. The downside; I can only down load it to two different computers. My first copy (~3 years ago) allowed for three down loads as I recall.

Excellent Study Aid
by A Customer from TN USA 

Pros: Just like the actual test

Pros: easy to use format, updated with the latest information
Cons: the single use license can't be transferred.
Review: I purchased the Gleim Private Pilot Test Prep software for my daughter. At first she was skeptical, but in four days of her Christmas break from college, she used the software diligently and passed her written test with a score of 98. She also said that it was valuable preperation for her oral portion of the checkride. I'll use Gleim again!
