Suitable for JAR PPL, NPPL and NPPL(M) - three axis
3rd edition; revised 2009; reprinted 2013.
PPL 1 Flying Training, the first book in AFE's best selling PPL course series, follows the JAA PPL and NPPL flying training syllabus
Private Pilot Licence Series Volume 1 - Flying Training follows the JAA PPL flying training syllabus and takes a fresh and modern approach to learning to fly. It dismantles some long established myths and encompasses many issues concerning today's pilots (wake turbulence, ATC procedures, transponders and radar, radio navigation, noise abatement) as well as those timeless airmanship issues that have always been vital to safe flying (lookout, carburettor icing, organising cockpit workload.)
The book takes the reader from a point assuming no pre-knowledge of aviation, to the completion of the JAA PPL flying syllabus. It is presented in a straightforward manner, with no irrelevant theoretical material. Illustrated throughout with diagrams, line drawings and photographs, including a step-by-step 'patter' of each flight exercise with internal and external views of the flight exercise to match. PPL1 is also the only training book currently available which covers the full UK JAA PPL syllabus, including in particular Radio Navigation.
Overview of the full course
The PPL Course Series In its original edition, first published in 1994, the PPL course series quickly became standard issue at the majority of flying schools and clubs training for CAA courses. Their accuracy, clarity and user-friendly approach was widely acclaimed and their fresh and modern approach to their subject matter made them a favourite amongst student pilots and instructors alike.
Now being published in their second edition, specifically re-written to reflect the JAR syllabus, the PPL Course Series continues to be the most up-to-date series available and is now the only set of publications that completely and accurately cover the JAA PPL course syllabus. Furthermore, AFE follow a publishing policy of restricting the print run of each book to the minimum commercially viable, meaning that amendments and updates can be incorporated into reprints as quickly as possible, rather than waiting up to a couple of years to publish new information. Moreover, this is the only series written by a JAR Flight Instructor (FI), which is why more and more FTO's are changing over to the PPL Courses series. .
