Distance Learning with Padpilot

March 13, 2020

Today we have released a free digital guide for trainee or aspiring pilots who wish to make progress towards a career as an airline pilot while at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘The Padpilot Guide To Distance Learning’ can be downloaded from the Apple Books store onto iPad, iPhone or Mac. It’s designed to help students study productively on their own, with an understanding of how the subjects are relevant to an airline career, without getting overwhelmed by the vast ATPL theory syllabus.

The guide was set to accompany the launch of Padpilot’s new EASA 2020 syllabus ATPL(A) books at the end of March. It contains study tips and explanations of how to use the interactive features within the Padpilot theory books to enhance learning and memory retention. Now, having received requests for help from those in self-isolation, Padpilot has included additional information for those wanting to use their time at home to prepare for professional pilot training courses, before they begin a formal training programme.

It can be daunting to know where to start with ATPL theory, but with some structure and guidance, it’s possible to make good progress.
These ‘pre-coursers’ may not have any aviation experience yet, so the guide explains how to build your aviation knowledge, which theory books to start with and why, and which subjects to save for ATPL ground school with an instructor.

“We hope this little guide will help aspiring aviators and distance learning pilots make the most of their time at home,” said Graham Cownie, MD. ”It can be daunting to know where to start with ATPL theory, but with some structure and guidance, it’s possible to make good progress in preparation for when pilot recruitment begins to pick up again.”

Having ATPL manuals as Apple Books is an amazing idea! You can have your manuals on any device and carry on studying wherever you are.

When it comes to learning aids, we often introduce the newest technology to ensure our students are provided with tools for improving their learning experience and enhancing their understanding, yet are easily accessible. For this reason, we partnered with Padpilot and we are glad we made it happen!

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.

I'm ATPL distance learning with another training provider. Having come across your material and purchased the content for my current module, I find it far superior and will be purchasing the rest of your ATPL catalogue.
