The purpose of the 2019 Gleim Flight/Ground Instructor FAA Knowledge Test book is to provide you with the easiest, fastest, and least-expensive means of passing the FAA knowledge test. Gleim Knowledge Transfer Outlines at the beginning of each study unit concisely present the relevant material needed to answer questions selected from previously-released FAA test banks, as well as questions that have been developed from current FAA reference materials.
This book can be used in preparation for the following FAA airman knowledge tests:
Flight Instructor – Airplane (FIA)
Basic and Advanced Ground Instructor (BGI & AGI)
Pilot Examiner – Airplane (PEA)
Sport Instructor – Airplane (SIA)
Over 950 Multiple-Choice Questions
Learn and understand difficult concepts easily using the Knowledge Transfer Outlines
Review reprints of all images in the FAA Testing Supplement
Prepare for the exam by taking practice FAA knowledge tests under exam conditions
Learn principles instead of memorizing answers by reviewing answer explanations
Ground Instructor-specific and Sport Pilot Instructor-specific questions provided in appendixes for precise study
