ATPL (Aeroplanes)

Padpilot ATPL(A) books help student pilots prepare for their theory exams in a straightforward, career-focused way.

No other ATPL theory manuals are as engaging or as up-to-date, and of course they’re fully compliant with the CAA/EASA syllabus.

Simple text and interactive content lifts theory off the page and into real life. We place theoretical knowledge within the context of the modern aviation industry using plenty of case studies and operational examples written by our airline pilot authors, to make studying memorable.

And there’s plenty of focus on exam success, too: built-in study aids mean it’s easy to take notes, while the LO summary pages and quick quizzes at the end of each chapter take the stress out of revision.

ATPL(A) books are available for all devices via our multi-device eReader platform or in original Apple Book format as individual books.
