Following an introductory flight with Prashanth Elangoval who is the president and chief flight instructor at Avel, I signed up for the Private Pilot Ground School that he was teaching starting the next week. He is a very knowledgeable tutor who can balance theory with practical first hand anecdotes that serve you well as you begin logging flight hours. We used a combination of slides, the Gleim Kit and ASA PrepWare as we worked towards the proficiency needed to clear the FAA knowledge test. Classroom mockups include model aircraft, propellers, and a few flight instruments. The school flies a Piper PA38 Tomahawk. The course compresses a lot of information into around 50 classroom hours over 10 days, but you will need to prepare as well to do justice to the material that Prashanth whets your appetite on.

I just completed the intense ground school (45+ hours in 7 days). The instructor, Prashanth, did an amazing job covering all the necessary topics in such a short amount of time. The instructors are very knowledgeable, experienced, and generous with their time. Even more surprising, the instructor made himself available 24/7 to give us individual attention!!! I had absolutely zero aviation knowledge entering the class, yet passed the FAA written exam with flying colors. I can’t wait to begin my flight training with Avel Flight School 😉

The free two day private pilot ground school course given by Prashanth Elangovan of Avel Flight School was very informative. I needed to get a better understanding of the theory behind flying before making the decisionto join flight school and the free ground school course gave me the confidence to move ahead. Prashanth’s experience and knowledge in flying together with his teaching skills make him a very talented flight instructor. I look forward to taking flying lessons from his school.

I December, I took a ground school prep course for the Private Pilot written test with Avel Flight School. Prashanth was the instructor for the course, and boy was it effective. I’ve fooled around with flight sims before, but he taught the ins and outs that I needed to be able to pass the FAA’s knowledge test (I passed with a 90% on my first try).
The course was done in one week, and it fit around my work schedule nicely. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to work towards their private pilot license.

I have been interested in learning to fly for a while now. So I shopped around for places that do discovery flights to see which ones would be cheaper and I came across this school.
Not only were they the most reasonably prices but the staff was extremely friendly as well. The administrator Lauren and the owner Prashanth really helped me understand the different courses that they offer and that the discovery flight would be the best starting option for me to see if I even like being up in the air. The hour discovery flight was amazing!!! I did not think that I would be the one flying the plane but I did for the whole hour!! You get a brief but thorough over view of the plane and what you will be doing. Then you get taken up into the air where you get to fly the plane as much as you and/or the instructor feel comfortable (other then take off and landing, they do that!!!)
Once I got back they gave my a certificate with my name on it showing that I had taken the discovery flight. Since I am interested in getting my private pilot license they also told me about a free ground school that they were offering at the time and that I guess they offer several times a year. You put money down to save your spot and after you pass the test in the time they give you, you get that money back!!! They said that would be a good step for me to go in to see if I even like it and if i do and i decide to finish my private license they will put that money toward the rest of the course!!
I was shocked at how much they were offering the private course for, for I have looked at several other school in Illinois and ALL of them were 4-7 THOUSAND dollars more. And on top of that they are a part 141 sand 61 school, one of only two in Illinois. I cant wait to sign up for the next free ground school they offer and hopefully after that finish my whole private pilot license 🙂

I have been flight instructing in Chicago for the last 35 years. I have known Prashant for two years. His Piper Tomahawk is well maintained and he is an excellent instructor. He has an FAA Part 141 school which has a demanding curriculum. I am not aware of any other such schools in the area that is Part 141 approved. This combined with his years of experience give the students the most for their money. He loves teaching people to fly and if you give him a chance you quickly recognise you made a wise choice.T here are many schools that simply give new instructors on the job training at the students expense. . This is not the case with Prashant. You will benefit each minute you spend with him. Furthermore, Avel is a Part 141 school. The FAA requires a much higher maintenance standard on Part 141 aircraft. For example, the engine is not allowed to be operated beyond the manufacturers recommended 2000 hours before overhaul even if it runs like a watch. If a flight school is not Part 141, they can and do operate that engine well beyond the 2000 hours and many do just that to save $25,000 on an overhaul bill.I have flown for 4 different air lines and find that Avel’s Piper Tomahawk is maintained just as goodl or better than any of the airline planes I flew.In this depressed economy it is hard for many to come up with the cash necessary to complete their license. It might be in their best interest to negotiate a discounted hourly rate in return for flying10 hours per month or more. It has been my experinece that students will average 70 hours flying time and 40 hours ground instruction, before they get their private pilot license. Of the 70 hours flying time, about 40 hours is with the instructor. The above instruction should cost close to $10,000 at todays prices. If you are a fast learner, it will be less. Sincerely Yours,

I just passed my Private Pilot Exam (August 1, 2013) with Avel Flight School. I really enjoyed time spent at the school and learning all there is about aviation for PPL. I’ve met and learnt from 3 different instructors, who really took care of me. They always had time for me and explained everything until they were 100% sure I understood it. People there are really friendly and knowledgable, which is very important when you spend countless hours in ground school for preparation for your exams. When time for check ride came, I was well prepared, therefore, passing the exams was just a formality to become who I always wanted to be – a pilot. I will be coming back to Avel for my Instrument Rating soon. I really highly recommend them for anything related with aviation.Konrad Stasiukiewicz
The two day private pilot ground school course given by Prashanth Elangovan of Avel Flight School was outstanding. While any student can read the technical information and concepts presented in various aviation training publications, Prashanth has the remarkable ability to take that information and those concepts and present them in a concise, straightforward, easy to understand manner. His knowledge of aviation theory, real first hand flying experience and, his ability to use simple sketches and clear examples from the real world to explain, often times, complex and detailed subject matter, makes him a pleasure to learn from.

Review click to see YelpI was recently given the gift of flight by my wife via a living social coupon. Having never flown before I was very nervous about the experience although I always dreamed of learning to fly. Prashanth, the owner, provided a memorable experience that I’ll never forget. As I began my ground lesson he was very patient and allowed me to ask many questions as he explained the basics of the airplane and the flying procedure. My major concern was safety but after his explanations I felt very comfortable knowing that I was being trained by competent company. Although I was very nervous during our initial flight he was clever enough to allow for a stop at another airport before continuing the flight which allowed me to relax between stops and feel more comfortable with the second flight. It was the second flight that convinced me that flying was good idea for me and something I should pursue more seriously in the very near future. I later did further research and found out that the flight school was a Federal Aviation Administration Part 141 approved flight school. Once I realized this is the closest school to where I live in Oak Park with this designation and only one of eleven in the state, I knew that they would be the school I would choose for my additional training. I therefore enthusiastically recommend Avel Flight School in Schaumburg for anyone looking to start their journey towards their pilots license. Tony.H
