Aviation Seminars has broken the FAA test into individual subject areas (see Topics Covered below). We teach each of those subjects individually, followed by a review of FAA Test Questions from that subject area. This ensures that not only do you receive instruction in each of the FAA Exam Subject areas, but you will be familiarized with how the FAA will question you on those subjects. This review also makes certain that the class understands each subject fully before moving on to the next subject.

Class runs Saturday 8:00-6:00 and Sunday from 8:00-4:00.


The Instrument Pilot exam contains 60 questions on a variety of essential subjects. These questions are chosen from over 900 questions in the exam database. You are allowed 2 1/2 hours to complete the exam.

UPDATE: Over the last year, FAA has greatly increased the difficulty of the FAA Exam. Due to these changes, we are no longer recommending Sunday as the best time to take the FAA Exam. Our suggestion is to wait to test until after taking a few of our on-line practice exams. This will help to guarantee that you pass the exam on your first try! Click here for more info.

Topics covered include:

• Preflight and Departure
• En-route and Arrival
• Approach and Landing
• Radio Navigation
• Aircraft Navigation
• Aircraft Instruments
• Flight Planning
• Weather Theory
• Weather Reports and Forecasts

Take this sample pilot question:

“If the magnetic heading is 330 degrees and the relative bearing is 270 degrees, what is the magnetic bearing to the station?”


Remember the formula: MH+RB=Mbto. So, 330 + 270 = 600. Well, there is no 600 degrees, so we subtract 360 from it and get 240 degrees, which is the magnetic bearing to the station!
