OATmedia launches PPL training book set

Article Type: Book review From: Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology: An International Journal, Volume 80, Issue 4

OATmedia, the training media division of Oxford Aviation Academy (OAA), has launched a series of seven high-quality textbooks for Private Pilots License (PPL) training. The textbooks cover the essential stages in PPL qualification:

  1. 1.

    Air Law (including Operational Procedures);

  2. 2.

    Human Performance and Limitations;

  3. 3.

    Navigation (including Radio Navigation Aids);

  4. 4.


  5. 5.

    Principles of Flight (including Aeroplane Performance);

  6. 6.

    Aeroplanes (including Mass and Balance); and

  7. 7.


The seven volumes may be purchased individually or together as a set at a discounted price.

The lavishly illustrated series of seven text books provides a comprehensive ground training programme for the theoretical knowledge syllabus of both the JAR-FCL/EASA PPL (Aeroplanes) and the UK NPPL (Aeroplanes). Volumes 1-4 and 7 are also relevant for student helicopter pilots working towards the JAA PPL (H), the UK NPPL (H) or the equivalent national licence.

In addition to pilot training, the PPL book set provides and an excellent refresher guide for qualified pilots wishing to review their theoretical knowledge and are ideal for flying clubs wishing to provide members with a reference work on current best practice.

Commenting on the launch of the PPL book set, Les Fellows, Manager of OATmedia said, “This new set of seven volumes is intended to be the most comprehensive programme for ground training PPL theoretical knowledge available. It provides everything the prospective pilot needs to know and is an excellent training aid or reference work for qualified pilots. The books complement our CD-ROM series of computer based training aids and are able to develop individual topics in greater detail than the CD-ROMs, taking the student pilot someway beyond the knowledge required for the PPL exam alone. There are always occasions when a text book is easier to access than a computer based training aid and the PPL book set meets this need.”
