User Guide

 

Using the Easy PPL Ground School web site is easy. However, for completeness, here's a few help pages for the relevent areas of the web site that you may find useful.

Before we get too far though, a word about web browsers! We believe our site is compatible with all major web browsers. However, from our extensive testing of our website using various browsers, we have found that the best experience (in terms of reliability and speed) is achieved by using Google Chrome. We're not asking you to change - we just thought you'd like to know!

What to do first

Some of our web pages are available for everyone to access. These include information about the company and contact details, but also our Guidance and Best Practice pages. Obviously, you also have access to our Courses page that shows what types of courses we have, and their associated prices, including a short preview.

However, you will get much more from what we have to offer if you take up our FREE Registration.

After registration and activation, it's a really simple process to subscribe to any of our courses.

 

FREE Registration

Registering is a simple process, and allows us to keep in touch with news and events that you may find useful. What we won't do is bombard your inbox!

All you need do is create a Username (no spaces or email addresses allowed) that is unique. This is a one-off process, and you will not be able to change it, so make it sensible!

Then create a password of your choice. We don't ever get to see your password, and we will never ask for it.

Enter a valid email address that will be used by the system to allow you to Activate your account at Easy PPL Ground School.

Please note, that you can only use our Referral Scheme after you have activated your account (see below).

 

Activation

After Registering, we will send you an email to the address you specified as part of the Registration process.

Simply click on the link supplied in the email to activate your Easy PPL Ground School account.

Failure to activate your account within 30 days will result in your account being deleted. You will be sent email reminders during the activation period to remind you of this!

Please note, that you can only use our Referral Scheme after you have activated your account.

 

Login / Logout

Your account is unique to you. You can Login and Logout at any time you choose.

Whilst you may use Easy PPL Ground School on as many devices as you like, you can only be logged in on one device at a time.

Once you Login on a new device, you will automatically be logged out of any previous device that you were logged in with.

This allows us to be able to keep track of the page numbers of the courses you are studying to enable you to "pick up where you left off" at any time, in any place, on any device, anywhere!

 

Changing your details

From the Control Panel page, you are be able to change your email address, password, and other details as required should you need to.

The Control Panel also gives you short-cut access to many of the features described below that are also available from the web site menus.

 

Buy Subscription

You can subscribe to any or all of our on-line courses. Costs and course details are shown on our On-Line Courses page.

From the My Account menu, select Buy Subscription.

If this is your first subscription, we'll need to gather a few more details from you such as your name, address and phone number. From there, it's a straight forward process of selecting the courses and durations you wish to purchase a subscription for.

You will be shown a summary page before finally committing to payment. All of our payment transactions are securely handled through PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account! You can pay via any debit or credit card, or Paypal.

Once paid, confirmation is given, and the courses are added to your account. These can then be viewed via the My Studies page.

Should you wish to see the status of any of your subscribed courses (including their expiry date) visit the Control Panel and select My Subscriptions.

The My Orders page shows details of orders for courses you have placed, including any that are currently pending payment (before they appear in your My Studies list).

You may add extra time to any course, or add new courses at any time, by just subscribing to the appropriate course and duration of your choice. Should you choose to subscribe again to an existing course that is already in your account, the newly purchased duration is added to the end of your current active expiry date.

 

Referrals & Free Courses!

Using our Referral Scheme allows you to earn rewards in the form of FREE COURSES (for Students and Pilots), or COMMISSION (for Flying/Ground Instructors).

Everyone is automatically elegible for the referral scheme; all you need to do is to Register with us, and Activate your account. If you are an instructor, you will also need to contact us to provide us with a copy of your Flying/Ground Instructor Certificate.

When you refer your friends to Easy PPL Ground School, make sure they enter YOUR referral code into the Referer box when they Register. Your unique Referral code is actually your login Username. You can always find your referral code via your Control Panel.

Every time anyone that was referred by you purchases a course subscription, you will be credited with a point.

For Students and Pilots, for every 5 points you earn, you can claim a free course for one month! This is achieved via your Control Panel.

If you are a Flying/Ground Instructor, you will earn commission for all purchases made by your referrals, and we will contact you to arrange payment.

You can find even more detailed information on our Referrals & FREE Courses page.

 

My Studies

My Studies is where you access your on-line courses.

Easy PPL Ground School remembers the page you were last viewing for each course, so you can pick up where you left off last time, even if you've changed viewing devices or your physical location in the meantime!

When you are viewing a course, use the forward and back buttons provided on the screen to navigate through the course. You may also jump to a particular page number. You will find that on every course, Page 3 contains a list of topics for that course with page numbers.

If there is a web link or a video on the page displayed, click anywhere on that page to view that link or video.

Just a quick reminder about web browsers! We believe our site is compatible with all major web browsers. However, from our extensive testing of our website using various browsers, we have found that the best experience (in terms of reliability and speed) is achieved by using Google Chrome. We're not asking you to change - we just thought you'd like to know!

 

Ask an Instructor

Ask an Instructor is an easy way of contacting an expert on the subject material you are studying. In fact, you'll be communicating with the course author direct.

From the Ask an Instructor page, select the course you wish to ask a question about (you'll only be able to ask questions about courses you've subscribed to), and type your question. We will receive the question, and answer it promptly. Replies go to your Easy PPL Ground School registered email address. Don't be afraid to keep asking for clarification on things you continually don't understand. If necessary, we'll even give you a call on the phone to chat about it. That's why we ask for your phone number as part of the subscription process!

 

Other Courses

For non on-line course options (which can be viewed on our Other Courses page), we will need to communicate with you directly since personal contact is required to deliver the course! Payment is taken via a different method (BACS, Card or Cash), but we will discuss this with you.

 

Technical Support

If you have technical issues with accessing any of our material, email support is the initial contact method (see our Contact Us page).

However, we're not one of those companies that just leaves you in the lurch with non-personal email exchanges! If necessary, we'll talk to you directly on the phone to give you every assistance in solving the issue.

 

Other Questions

If you have any other query (sales, or just of a general nature) about us, or our services, you can get on touch via our Contact Us page.
