Subjects include the new regulation, airspace classifications, flight restrictions, aeronautical chart study, airport operations, radio communication, weather, human factors and more. Sample test questions will also be reviewed. Optional $15 test prep book available for purchase in class. One hour lunch on your own. Registration deadline 6/12. Deadline for withdraw refund is 6/7.
