Online Flight School FAQs

YES. Our online flight school is absolutely free to all our fully paid students. No strings attached!

The Eastrise online flight school is a training portal we have prepared for students who have started their flying lessons. It contains videos and text that covers the air exercises, stage checks and other results areas. This is a great way of exposing our students to the lessons they will undertake, thus helping them to prepare both intellectually and psychologically. Students who utilise the online flight school do not struggle to grasp the concepts taught in the actual flight lessons. Moreover, they have increased chances of passing their stage checks and the checkride at the first attempt.

On the other hand, our Online Ground School is a learning portal that covers the theoretical component of the various aviation (pilot) courses. We complement the online ground school with a free mock exams site we have named TestPrep as well as Flytex -- our free to use Android App that only fully paid students at Eastrise have free access to.

NO. Our free resources are only for Eastrise Aviation students. External students may purchase a subscription on our online store.
We recommend completing ground school first. However this may not always be possible. You therefore need to complete the Air Law and Radiotelephony ground school courses and pass the prescribed exams (knowledge tests) before you can start your flying lessons.
YES. A student's online flying school subscription will expire after 365 days from the date of the first enrollment. We will also suspend it indefinitely once the student completes their training and has passed the knowledge tests. Subscription to the Eastrise online schools and apps is not transferable.
Sure. Just let us know and we will be happy to create an account for you. Please note that test-drive accounts for the Eastrise online flight school will automatically lapse after 24 hours.
