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.

Even if you are not in training to be an airline pilot I would recommend the Maths & Physics book to anybody that wants to transform their understanding of Maths (for use in any workplace) overnight.

We believe in the flexibility that distance learning offers, while accepting no sacrifices in terms of quality of learning. A vital part of achieving this goal is to have access to up-to-date, solid, and digitally advanced learning materials. Padpilot offers this and we’re eager to get started.

The books have a lot of references to new information, systems, and accidents that have happened lately, so you know they are very up to date.

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.
