Meet Ian Young, Padpilot’s new Editor in Chief.
We’re excited to welcome Ian Young to the Padpilot community. Over the past couple of years Padpilot has been growing rapidly; developing and updating our range of aviation theory books and working with more than 100 excellent partner ATOs and students worldwide. We recently announced our 200,000th book download and we’re currently developing a new ATPL book series for Helicopter pilots.
As we’ve grown, we’ve been looking for just the right person to join the team and help take our ground school resources to the next level. And now we’ve found him!
Pilot, publisher, Editor in Chief
Ian Young is a former airline pilot who has flown both the B737 and A320 for UK based airlines. He’s also been an A320 type rating instructor, General Aviation and MCC/JOC instructor, as well as a professional copyeditor, publisher and university lecturer specialising in English and academic writing. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
He says: “I’m impressed by Padpilot’s genuine intention to help students develop an understanding of the material, rather than simply memorising facts to pass an exam. So, I’m excited to join the team and help develop these books further, and to create immersive and lasting learning experiences for student pilots.”
Ian will be leading our team of authors and subject matter experts. His enthusiasm for all things flying related, combined with his professional aviation experience and editorial skills is the perfect addition to our team. We’re delighted he’s joined us.
