This year we are taking a different approach to Black Friday. It’s been such a difficult year for so many that instead of Black Friday, we’re going Green. And this weekend we’ll be giving some of our digital pilot training materials away instead.
The first part of our Green Friday is a giveaway for 5 complete sets of theory books for the EASA Private Pilot Licence (Aeroplane) exams.
If you’d like to learn to fly as hobby, or you’re following the modular (step-by-step) route to becoming a qualified commercial pilot, then a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) is the way to go.
As well as flight training, student pilots also need to pass theoretical knowledge exams and our books teach you everything you need for the PPL (A) exams. And, if you decide to continue on to commercial flight training, the theory you learn during your PPL will give you a great foundation for for Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) studies, too.
A complete set of PPL manuals usually costs £134.91 in the UK, and they’re are a perfect introduction to aviation theory for any aspiring or trainee pilot. There are nine books in the set (plus the free Maths and Physics introduction) and they’re suitable for complete beginners as they build knowledge and understanding as you work through each of the 9 subjects.
Padpilot PPL (A) Theory Books
- Introduction: Maths and Physics for Pilots (free)
- Air Law
- Aircraft General Knowledge
- Flight Performance and Planning
- Human Performance
- Navigation and Radio Aids
- Operational Procedures
- Principles of Flight
Portable, digital, interactive textbooks
If you’ve never studied from a digital manual before, don’t worry. Studying with Apple Books is easy and you can use any reasonably up to date Apple device: iPad, iPhone or Mac. The digital features make studying easier and more engaging because you can highlight text, find definitions, search online and make digital revision notes as you go. And video, animations and plenty of images embedded into each book help break up the text and bring the theory to life.
ATPL Gas Turbine Learning Core
We’re also giving away twenty-four of our ATPL Engines app: the Gas Turbine Learning Core. This 3D model Learning Core is Augmented and Virtual Reality ready and allows commercial trainee pilots (and anyone interested in Engines) to understand a gas turbine engine without having to read lots of text.
The app contains an annotated 3D interactive model of a Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engine. Once downloaded, you can build, zoom, play, and interact with it, learning as you go. Understanding how an engine works is made easy! It’s the perfect complement to our ATPL Engines eBook and would help any future pilot or engineer get to grips with how a Gas Turbine engine works.
