The second edition of this Padpilot book is applicable to, and 100% compliant with, the EASA 2020 ATPL(A) theoretical knowledge syllabus, when read in association with our Advanced Instrumentation title to study for the Aircraft Knowledge Instrumentation examination.
This title covers everything you need to know to satisfy the syllabus learning objectives. It also covers other essential information which you need to know if you intend to pursue a career as a professional airline pilot.
The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs, photo-realistic renders and pin-sharp diagrams. It also contains videos, animations and links to our online 3D models. These bring the subject to life and improves and deepens your understanding.
The book features our unique ContentPlus system. At the tap of a button you have access to accident case studies and insights into topics, showing how topics are directly relevant to piloting and how they connect with other aviation topics. Threat and Error flags throughout the book alert you to any significant flight safety hazards associated with the topic. Every chapter has a new-style summary page which aims to address, in very simple, short responses, each EASA LO covered in the chapter. Each chapter includes an electronic Quick Quiz which tests the knowledge summarised in the chapter summary.
As with all Padpilot books, we explain to the level which gives you deep understanding of all the topics important to pilots. This book is far more than a mere collection of exam-passing notes. It’s your reference volume and authoritative resource for everything related to aircraft instrumentation. It’s written by pilots, for pilots at the level that professional pilots need to understand.
Padpilot constantly works to enhance its books. Each new version of an edition comes with new insights, or describes new systems and procedures or adds better explanations and even more illustration and animation. You receive all these absolutely free for the life of the edition.
New editions are published infrequently, on the rare occasions when we need to completely revise the structure of the book.
