STEM for Aviation

March 23, 2020

The Padpilot STEM for Aviation (STEM-A) book is now even better for ‘pre-coursers’ wanting to get ready for pilot training programmes while at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This digital, interactive book is part of the Pilot Foundation Course and helps aspiring pilots prepare for their professional training before enrolling with an approved training organisation (ATO).

While you don’t need a science degree, or even science A levels for pilot training, you do need to have a basic foundation of knowledge in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Perhaps you’re not sure if your maths and physics knowledge is good enough for pilot training? Or maybe it has been a while since you studied any science or technical subjects? If you want to make sure you’re ready for the theoretical knowledge (‘ground school’) phase of pilot training, this book will help.

Having a solid grounding in STEM subjects is important. And to help you focus on your future career while you’re gaining that pre-course knowledge, we’ve made all the STEM learning in this book relevant to aviation. What you’ll learn will underpin any future aviation theory courses, and will help trainee pilots understand the more complex areas of study found in the ATPL theory syllabus.

During these challenging times of self-isolation, more people are now distance learning.

When trainee pilots enrol with a pilot training academy (ATO), they need to take a pre-course maths and physics test. This is a requirement of all ATOs. Now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help future aviators prepare for flight training courses while at home, we have added 30 electronic quizzes to the book. These quizzes are embedded and the results cannot seen by anyone else. So, more than ever before, you can test yourself thoroughly, and be sure your knowledge is secure before enrolling on a modular, integrated or MPL pilot training course.

During these challenging times of self-isolation, more people are now distance learning. So, last week we released The Padpilot Guide To Distance Learning to help future pilots study on their own.

Our free guide contains study tips and explanations of how to use the interactive features within Padpilot theory books to enhance their learning and memory retention. It also provides information for those wanting to use their time at home to prepare for professional pilot training courses before they begin a formal training programme. The first block of studying that our Distance Learning Guide recommends is this STEM-A book.

If you want to prepare for a career as an airline pilot, we highly recommend downloading The Padpilot Guide To Distance Learning and then beginning your pre-course learning by getting your STEM knowledge up to speed with STEM for Aviation. By the time you’re ready to start your professional training, you will be top of the class!

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.

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.

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.

I studied carefully every topic in the ATPL material to gain comprehensive knowledge. I was well prepared for the new exam content and scored above 90% in every subject!
