We've just added another course! In order to fly aircraft with a Variable Pitch Propeller, Official Differences training must first be performed, and signed off by an appropriately qualified instructor in the pilots logbook. The training requires both theoretical knowledge as well as practical elements. This course fully prepares you with the knowledge required that you will then put into practice with your instructor in flight!
To find out more, visit the Variable Pitch Propeller Course Page.
We are delighted to announce that we are once again sponsoring two @bwpa.uk scholarships. The BWPA Easy PPL Ground School Scholarships are each for the full value a Private Pilotâ€™s Licence ground school course covering all nine required subjects.

We've updated and revamped our Infringement Avoidance Course to include even more tips, tricks and best practices. We've included how to configure GPS moving map devices (we use SkyDemon as an example). So if you're a SkyDemon user, you really, really, ought to take a look at this course! Check it out here!
As a result of this update, we also took the opportunity of updating the Best Navigation Practices course with SkyDemon at the same time! For more information on this course, click here.
We've been working hard! All of our students now have even more statistics to help and encourage them in their studies. We not only have statistics on the time you spend studying and taking tests or exams, but now we've also included some statistics on how well you're performing in those tests and exams. Take a look here!
We have updated all of our material to cater for the fact that the UK fully left EASA on 31st December 2020. However, our courses are still suitable for EASA student pilots! We have included the implications of the UK leaving EASA in addition to the syllabus material for EASA students. Carry on studying! Contact us for more details if necessary.
We're pleased to announce that we now have the necessary theoretical knowledge courses required for NPPL Microlight and Powered Parachute Pilots! Take a look at the Courses page. These courses are available to any training organisation able to undertake Microlight and/or Powered Parachute flight training. Contact us for more details if necessary.
We are constantly busy updating our course material, progress tests and course exams from valuable feedback our students are telling us from the new CAA E-Exams! Our students LOVE our material - constantly updated, relevant, and kept in tune with the style of questioning and topic coverage that appears in the new exams.
We've added a new feature to the Study page when you are studying a course. Instead of having to move the mouse over the left and right arrows on the screen to move forwards and backwards through the course, you can now use the following KEYBOARD keys to save you having to move the mouse: "N" (or the right keyboard arrow key) for next page, "P" (or the left keyboard arrow) for previous page.
We regularly update all of our courses as appropriate to keep in line with changes in regulations and procedures. That's the beauty of an on-line course over and above any printed material that you purchase, which effectively becomes out of date as soon as you receive it (if not beforehand)!
Each of our courses contains change control information detailing the differences from previous versions. For every course, this can be found on page 4.
Listed below are all of our courses with the dates they were last updated. All this information is in one place here to check if you need to re-visit a particular course to bring yourself up to speed.
