Operational Procedures is one of the first Theoretical Knowledge (TK) subjects to be tackled on almost any pilot’s licence course.
Nevertheless, many student pilots approach ‘Ops Proc’ with a heavy heart, not helped by the original syllabus for the subject which was confused and lacked practical knowledge. This shortcoming was addressed in the new 2015 EASA pilot training syllabi, designed to bring pilot training into line with the modern flying environment.
To make the best of this new approach to teaching aviation Theoretical Knowledge requires new training material for the student pilot, and Aeronautical Knowledge – Operational Procedures is part of a brand-new series of training manuals, designed from the beginning to take full advantage of this new methodology in aviation training. Rather than merely making revisions to an existing publication, AFE has produced a totally new training manual for Operational Procedures, covering new topics such as Threat and Error Management (TEM), EASA ‘Part-NCO’ regulations, Portable Electronic Devices (PED) and incident reporting.
Written by the best-selling aviation author of over 25 pilot training manuals, Aeronautical Knowledge – Operational Procedures finally brings this important aviation subject fully up-to-date.
Aeronautical Knowledge, Operational Procedures is the only fully up-to-date book on the subject for PPL, LAPL and NPPL pilots and student pilots, in particular covering the provisions of:
2012 Standardised European Rules of the Air (SERA)
2014 ‘Part FCL’ regulations
2014 Occurrence Reporting regulations
2016 Air Navigation Order (ANO)
2016 ‘Part NCO’ regulations
OP1 Application of Threat and Error Management
OP2 Operation of Aircraft
OP 3 Avoidance of Hazards
OP4 Search and Rescue Procedures
OP5 Accidents and Incidents
OP6 Care of Passengers
OP7 National Procedures

UK National PPL (NPPL)
ICAO-compliant PPL or equivalent licence
