Helicopter theory for android, tablets and desktops

July 29, 2023

One year after launching our interactive helicopter theory Apple Books, we’re excited to let you know they’re now available on our ‘device agnostic’ eReader platform.

No iPad? No problem!

Written specifically for helicopter operations with stunning images, 3D models, video content and interactive study aids, Padpilot ATPL(H) books can now be downloaded onto Apple and Android devices, as well as browsers, via our new eReader platform.

ATPL(H) is the latest series to be added to the Padpilot eReader.

Other theory books available are:
Foundation
PPL(A)
ATPL(A)

In each case the eReader version exactly mirrors the iBook editions.

Now you can study with Padpilot on any device

The Padpilot eReader content platform can be accessed on any device: Android, Apple and browsers.

  1. Simply download the eReader app from the App Store or Google Play.
  2. And then order your book subscription here: https://bit.ly/eReaderOrder

Each book subscription last for 3 years and allows downloads onto 3 devices – meaning you can study for your theoretical knowledge exams on your existing phone, tablet and desktop.

“When we launched them, these ATPL(H) books were the first set of commercial heli theory notes to be written from scratch specifically for rotary aircraft and their pilots. Up until then, rotary pilots had to use theory manuals adapted from aeroplane notes, rather than having their own, dedicated content. Now we’re delighted that helicopter pilots can study these books on any device as they prepare for the commercial exams” CEO, Graham Cownie.

For ATOs and helicopter training providers

For training providers we offer tailored packages of teaching and learning resources for students and instructors, including classroom presentations, learning management systems, and compliance & technical support.

Instructor classroom presentations are available as editable slide-sets that can be customised and mirror the ebook content to make planning and teaching easier.

Because the eReader book content exactly mirrors the original Apple Book editions, its easy to switch between Apple Books and the eReader editions, without having to change lesson plans or classroom presentations.

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

We really appreciate Padpilot books for ATPL(A) and ATPL(H) theory and have only positive feedback from our students. ATPL theory is really important for future professionals and Padpilot books are great supporting materials for students - not only for exams, but also for their future job.

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

Padpilot are ahead of the game; the books are beautiful, well structured and include the KSA areas for the 2020 EASA requirements. They’ve implemented new technology, such as AR and are a good match for our training philosophy which is, ‘personal pilot training, in style’. Padpilot books are convenient, paperless, and a fun way for students to study. And of course, Padpilot always offers great customer service.

Just wanted to reach out and say thank you for your books and resources. I’m currently an ATPL student and my flight school uses your books. It’s clear how much effort the team has put into producing these books - the diagrams, 3d models and mini videos are all amazing and really do help us get a good understanding of the sometimes complex systems. It’s amazing how this content has been incorporated into the books, as well as the added features such as the quizzes at the end of each chapter. I also had the pleasure of meeting two members of the team at the Berlin show. They were incredibly kind and open-minded when I gave feedback on potential developments as to how the industry can improve the way the course is taught. Keep up the good work.
