Student Comments

“I did 4 exams in two days with Linda with 3 other students. The group was well managed and everyone got the time and attention they needed.
Right from the start Linda has a professional approach, to all she does and provides to students on her ground school days conveniently located in Gerrards Cross.
Her coaching is clear and concise explaining in practical terms the theory and concepts as well as giving the understanding one needs to be safe as a student pilot well beyond just passing the exam. Linda simplifies the subject and keeps it focussed but explains tricky bits by example and illustration until one masters the point. Good use of up to date facts and figures and current video clips and as well as sharing her aviation knowledge as former flight crew, Ops manager and current GA pilot.
I’d highly recommend Linda’s ground school days as very good value, effective and efficient way of learning the subject and passing the exams.
The bound notes provided for you to retain have a professional look and feel and are well thought out and to a consistent standard.
Based on this experience I am returning for my last 3 subjects shortly.” Stuart Hood 2017

“I am in full time work in London and have little spare time for after-work courses or tuition. Attempting to study on my own from the required text books proved to be a daunting task with limited results. Linda’s ground school provided me the perfect mix of theory and worked examples to enable me to get to grips with the most complicated of concept or calculation in a short space of time. So whether in full time work or simply looking for a refresher course, Linda’s ground school offers an extremely efficient and enjoyable way of learning and passing the exams required for PPL theory. By the end of the course you’ll never forget QDM, QDR, ….!” Ken Lane 2017

“I had been studying for my exams by reading text books and looking at endless pages online but I really wanted to actually understand the subject rather than just pass the exams, Linda was a breath of fresh air, her teaching style is perfect for learning and understanding, seemingly stupid questions from me were met with the answer re explained until I got it. With her knowledge and teaching style I am very happy that I met Linda and that she helped me achieve all the exams with results that I would not have got near on my own. I thoroughly recommend Linda to anyone.”

“My busy schedule inhibits me from going to weekly PPL theory lessons. My flight instructor at Vliegschool-Hilversum (Netherlands) recommended Linda Wheeler’s Ground School training course. In one week you should be able to pass your theory examines! Linda’s school has a well-designed and structured unique one week teaching program, making difficult subjects accessible to all. I have just finished a great week in the UK and have passed all the PPL theory examines with high scores. Thanks to Linda” Kieran McGirr 2016

” I find it really good when you do the drawings on the board as I can visualise them in the exam, so keep doing them!” Greg Blundell 2017

“Just a massive thank you for getting me through my final 3 exams; Flight Planning, Meteorology & Navigation – who’d have thought that the Whizz Wheel is now my best friend! The relaxed and informal vibe from you teaching at home was perfect, whilst at the same time very professional – perfect for me. Anyone undertaking a PPL needs a dedicated Ground School and Linda is fab. I have been trying to juggle a full time job, 3 kids and 9 exams for years; exams now done, it’s onto the flying!” Ken Whittaker 2017

“I have never in my life been taught so well! I went through university struggling, I barely passed. I am dyslexic, which makes it difficult, I understood everything. Linda had everything organised to perfection. She teaches so well, it is incredible! I am so happy! I passed all exams and I could no have done it without her. Linda, you are brilliant, thank you!” Julia Hompes (From Amsterdam )2017

“The course content was extremely well thought out and impeccably delivered at just the right pace. There were ample opportunities to discuss specific things in more detail, if needed. In addition to the course content, Linda sprinkles the sessions with relevant, useful and thought provoking insight gained from her teaching and flying experience.
wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Linda Wheeler Ground school. Thank you Linda.”  Chris Terry 2017
