New US student here. I'm starting part 141 flight training soon for my private pilot license, but for now prepping for the knowledge test. I am going with self-study and had a question about endorsement for the written exam.
Is the endorsement I get from the ASA Prepware tool sufficient for taking the knowledge test?
Complete two practice tests with scores of 80% or better, and request your test sign-off (endorsement) from ASA
I am confused because I've been under the impression that part 141 mandates 35 hours of ground school for taking the knowledge test (also 35 hours of flight time).
Appendix B to Part 141—Private Pilot Certification Course
(a) Each approved course must include at least the following ground training on the aeronautical knowledge areas listed in paragraph (b) of this section, appropriate to the aircraft category and class rating:
(1) 35 hours of training if the course is for an airplane, rotorcraft, or powered-lift category rating.
If not, I might just do Sporty's ground school ($200) and get my endorsement that way.
