Becoming a pilot requires you take the FAA's Written Test before the Check-Ride for your license. From my own personal experience, my student's and from pilot's in general, the written test pushed back. Stop flying and start studying. I'm flipping the sequence and starting with the Written Test First! This is why I want to make this a contest. The Sioux Falls Flight School is offering FREE ground school, online question and answers and electronic study material. **Starts March 1, 2016** Enroll today and I'll send you more information about the OPPORTUNITY.
