ATPL Education for the EASA 2020 Syllabus

January 27, 2020

Today is International Day of Education and we couldn’t let it pass without talking about educating the next generation of commercial pilots. It’s what drives us!

Providing cadet pilots with a solid and functional foundation of theoretical knowledge – as well as great exam results – has always been at the heart of Padpilot.

The new EASA 2020 syllabus ATPL books, launching at the end of March, will make this even easier. The chapters in each book will teach the knowledge needed to become a professional pilot. Sometimes, the text will go beyond the learning requirements of the EASA syllabus, where extra information is needed for a complete understanding of the operational role of an airline pilot.

Then, at the end of each chapter, there will be a new feature – the chapter summary. This section focuses on the essential knowledge needed for passing the regulatory exams, and directly relates to the EASA Learning Objectives. A quiz will then test each trainee pilot’s knowledge of the summary points, giving additional interactivity and knowledge reinforcement within the book itself.

We’re looking forward to launching these new ATPL theory books, and the accompanying teaching presentations for ATOs soon.

OMNI chose Padpilot as we believe in delivering the highest standards of learning experience, connecting new technologies and producing internationally competent individuals to the aviation industry. Receiving feedback from partner airlines about our pilot trainees who are technically ready and harnessed with leadership skills reaffirms this mission. With Padpilot, we help our trainees land a job and become Captain material.

With the introduction of the EASA 2020 syllabus, we wanted to modernise the theory material. Padpilot offered the most reliable, up-to-date, and interactive content. The extra features, such as Case Studies and TEM flags, add to our students’ learning experience, and our instructors can personalise the classroom presentations that work so well alongside the book content. We’re proud to be the first ATO in Germany to sign an agreement with Padpilot.

The combination of text, illustrations and videos helps me understand ATPL concepts far more easily. (e.g. Gyroscopes)



When you are finding it hard to understand something like engines, the animations and videos are absolutely marvellous.



Compared with other ATPL materials I tried, Padpilot books were by far the most enjoyable ones for reading.
