World Pilots’ Day Giveaway

To celebrate World Pilots’ Day on Sunday 26 April 2020, we’re holding a giveaway. The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in many industries, including aviation, going through a difficult time so, in a very small way, we’d like to help some trainee or aspiring pilots with a free giveaway of some of our pilot training materials.

The prizes are:

6 x ATPL Gas Turbine Apps

1 x Complete set of 9 Private Pilot Licence (PPL) theory books

1 x PPL book of your choice

1 x PPL book of your choice

The Private Pilot Licence theory books are a perfect introduction to aviation theory. They assume no existing knowledge and build knowledge and understanding as the student progresses through each of the 9 digital books.

Each of the books contain videos, animations and interactive study features and will make basic aviation theory understandable and memorable. This book series contains all the knowledge needed for the EASA PPL theory exams – and are also a good place to start for anyone wanting to prepare for ab-initio airline pilot training courses. A complete set of PPL manuals usually costs £152

This Gas Turbine App helps students to understand the design, construction and function of a modern triple spool gas turbine engine. It doesn’t teach you everything you need to know for the EASA exam (you still need to refer to our ATPL book for that) but it does build a solid foundation of the basics. It’s also a fabulous learning tool for current airline pilots or engineers who wish to refresh their gas turbine knowledge.

At the heart of the app is a 3D model gas turbine engine based on the Rolls Royce Trent 1000. You can move it around any axis, show and hide individual components and animate some of the main elements such as the individual spools, the thrust reversers and the variable inlet guide vanes.

Tapping on individual components reveals a pop-up dialogue box which summarises the design and construction of the item. Where appropriate dialogue boxes also describe the most commonly associated threats or errors. They also contain links to the relevant chapters in our EASA ATPL Engines book so that you can research deeper where necessary. The Gas Turbine App is usually £9.99.

Winners will be chosen at random and announced on Monday 27th April 2020.
