Depends on the track. Generally, a new Enroute class starts almost every week, while Terminal classes might start every 2-3. You can see the complete FAA course catalog at FAA Catalog of Training - the courses you're looking for are 50043 and 50143 for Terminal and Enroute basics, respectively.Does anyone know how often new classes start? For instance, do they start up one new class per week or is it more like one every two weeks?
This is the current plan, yes. You'll spend roughly 7 hours watching videos and multimedia on computers, then an instructor will come in for an hour or so at the end of each day to answer questions. Like everything else, however, it's subject to change - so far the feedback from trial classes has been quite negative.I heard all basics courses will be computer based by June.
