Most Advanced Theory Books for the Current and New…

Training organisations are doing their best to cope with the increased demand in the ab initio pilot training while trying to get familiar with the incoming changes of the EASA ATPL syllabus. At Padpilot, we are prepared to support our ATO partners all the way through and, if your ground school is going through this demanding process, we would like to shed some light on what is available for you — first, an overview on the key incoming changes:

“This Decision updates the LOs and theoretical knowledge syllabi, and introduces the TEM concept and its application. The updated LOs correspond to today’s operational environment and ensure that commercial pilots are equipped with the knowledge and understanding relevant to modern flight operations and current industry needs. The Decision also introduces new LOs under Area 100 KSA (Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes), which aims to consolidate students’ understanding of the different theoretical knowledge subjects within the framework of the relevant ICAO core competencies. These skills focus on the pilots’ ability to apply their knowledge and understanding across subjects and to demonstrate technical and non-technical skills. These Area 100 KSA LOs will not be the subject of examinations organised by competent authorities using questions drawn from the ECQB, but will be assessed by the ATOs to ensure that student pilots have an adequate level of competency before they are allowed to sit their final theoretical knowledge examination. This modernised theoretical knowledge training will contribute to the overall enhancement of pilots’ core competencies and their ability to make informed decisions.” — Explanatory Note to Decision 2018/001/R

At the core, the key requirement is to improve students’ knowledge and understanding across subjects which aims at the end to improve pilots’ performance and safety.

For ground school, three important elements to be considered are:

  1. a dedicated and knowledgeable team of instructors,
  2. a well prepared thought-through training programme, and
  3. books that provide students with relevant and engaging content — here is where we can help.

Our main support is to provide the most advanced and relevant EASA-compliant digital books enabling students to achieve a deeper understanding of the theory and its applications.

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.

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.

We’re very happy to start this new cooperation with Padpilot. We share the same vision of wanting to improve students’ knowledge, and, at the same time, pilot performance and safety with KSA100. Thanks to this support we didn’t stop operating, even during lockdown, continuing to teach classes online throughout. Our students’ safety is what matters the most to us.”
