Making navigation easier

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've introduced some statistics for you - all about how long you have spent studying, and undertaking tests and exams for a given course! Check it out from the My Study Statistics page - under the Study Menu, or under the Study section on the Control Panel. Prove to yourself just how much work and effort you are putting in!


EASA AND CAA RULE CHANGES

There have been some rule changes by EASA (due for implementation 11th November 2019), and also a change to SSR (Transponder) procedures by NATS/CAA (due to be implemented on 27th February 2020). All of our courses have been updated to incorporate these changes.


EXAM SITTING REQUIREMENTS ABOLISHED!

As of 11th November 2019, there is no longer any requirement to complete all nine PPL theoretical exams within "6 sittings". All other time related requirements remain. For more information, see our Guidance for Student Pilots.


CLAIM YOUR FREE COURSE!

Yes that's right. We're giving away for FREE 5 days full access to the AIR LAW COURSE, plus FREE (full) access to our INFRINGEMENT AVOIDANCE COURSE! For more information click here.


Course Updates

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That's the beauty of an on-line course over and above any printed material that you purchase, which effectively becomes out of date as soon as you receive it (if not beforehand)!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.
