Free online PPL courses or similar course for wanna be pilot

Hi all,
I was wondering as there are many free online courses from many universities available to us during the lockdown, is there any aviation/ppl courses which i can make the most off ?

Thanks and stay safe.

I'm not sure you'll find many good ones that are free... But I've heard that some websites are doing discounts...
For free aviation knowledge though, you can go to Eurocontrol training courses. It will not be PPL specific but you can build good knowledge in MET, ACFT, Instruments, etc.

Hi. On You Tube, Aviation Training Network does both good ATPL & PPL videos. Highly recommend them. 👍

I remember CATS also has a free PPL ground school. I signed up some years ago before I actually started training, but never really used it.

Anyone know what happened to the YouTube Aviation Training Network channel? All videos disappeared overnight

Anyone know how to source them. Happy to pay. Cant seem to find any decent PPL Ground School videos. This is for my kids. The Thom books are good but videos help re-enforce. Thanks
