PPL(A) Courses

 

These Courses teach you everything you need to know to pass the theoretical exams required for the Private Pilots Licence (for Aeroplanes).

The method we deliver this capability to you is via on-line study which is a great way to gain the necessary knowledge if you're a busy person. Even if you're not, this method of study may well suit your learning style. (Other ways of learning can be found here).

Using our subscription service, we've made it straight forwards and simple with a fixed price per month per subject. Should you need help working out how to go about the process of studying for your basic theoretical knowledge exams for the Private Pilots Licence, we suggest you see our How to Study page.

Registration and subscription is an easy process, and you will then have immediate access to completely up-to-date material, that is kept up to date.

You have access to "Ask an Instructor" for any of the courses you subscribe to.

It may be that you only need to study for individual subjects, or it may be that you need to study for all the subjects for the Private Pilots Licence. Either way, our simple pricing structure allows you to buy what you need, when you need it, for however long you need it for! All this enables you to meet the Requirements placed upon you, under which you must complete all of your studies.

PPL(A) Course Previews

We aim to excel on clarity and understanding, with an emphasis on graphical learning, backed up by access to additional resources. Those additional resources are not shown here as part of the preview, but they are an invaluable aid to help your understanding of the subject matter.

 
Air Law & ATC Procedures

A taster of the material you will use to study this important subject which, amongst other things, includes the "Highway Code" of the air.

 
Operational Procedures

Learn all about the procedures that we must use as pilots to ensure standardisation and safety.

 
Aircraft General Knowledge

A technical knowledge helps in problem determination when things go wrong, and backs up the "why" we do things in Operational Procedures.

 
Principles of Flight

Having an understanding of the fundamental theories in how flight is achieved goes a long way to determining your practical handling of the aircraft.

 
Meteorology

We share the sky with the weather. This important subject is key to understanding how to keep safe and operate the aircraft and pilot within their limitations.

 
Human Performance & Limitations

To Err is Human. We need to understand how we all "Err" to hep avoid this in flight. Learn how to recognise impending errors, and what processes we can put in place to help prevent our natural ability to go wrong.

 
Navigation

We teach you all the theory, plus all the tips and tricks to help make your life easy in this comprehensive course that includes tuition on how to use the "whizz wheel" (pilots flight computer).

 
Communications

Radio Communications is a key part to your flying. Learn how to sound professional by following the correct procedures and using the correct terminology. We even teach you how to pass the Communications Practical exam as well as the written exam.

 
Flight Performance & Planning

Putting it all together. This subject covers many aspects of other courses, but is a requirement in its own right including weight and balance, and aircraft take-off, climb, cruise and landing performance calulations. You'll be a dab hand at the "whizz wheel" after this course.
