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.

  • Pros: Best price found, Jeppesen has a long history in aviation training material.

Quality Flight Training Materials

  • By Brian from Olathe KS USA on Thursday, October 15, 2015
  • Pros: All Inclusive
  • 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!

I would buy this product again

  • By peter from Batavia NY USA on Tuesday, August 18, 2015
  • Pros:
  • Review: I have purchased Jepp stuff for my Flight School since 1991.

wish it had review questions/study guide for written test.

  • By peter from Laramie WY USA on Thursday, July 09, 2015
  • Pros:
  • 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.
