PPL Ground School Manuals

Share this post:

PPL ground school manuals can be found on the bookshelves of thousands of qualified and student pilots throughout the world.

Student flight bags tend to be sturdy and heavy due to the amount of books they are designed to carry.  No pilot’s bookshelf would be complete with a selection of manuals and they will be carried to and from from ground school class and airfield.

Although many older editions contain information that is as relevant today as it was when the book was first published others can go out of date quickly. Certain principles of flight work in the same today as they did in 1908. However, the Air Law manual in particular needs to be the very latest edition. Other manuals in the series may need to be amended from time to time due to new discoveries, changes to the syllabus, or regulatory changes by the FAA, EASA or the CAA.

Getting on with your PPL studies

If ever you find yourself sitting at home because a flying lesson was cancelled then it’s the ideal opportunity to pick up your meteorology manual and work out why and how the bad weather arrived.

To complete your ground school studies it helps if you set up a study routine.  Choose the same time each day or a few times a week.  A little and often is better than irregular bursts of intense study.

Start each study session with a review of what you covered in the previous hours.  Build on your knowledge subject by subject and chapter by chapter.  Before long you will be reeling off the facts and data like a pro.

Among those shown below you’ll find books that contain PPL ground school questions and answers.  You may also use apps and other software that test your retention of the knowledge but as with the manuals, check that it’s up to date and accurate.

Ground School Manuals: e-learning

When OAT Media published their Private Pilot Training Software in the mid 2000’s it was a breath of fresh hour for those used colourless text books.  This range was probably the best on the market up to that point, certainly in the UK, but then again there isn’t much competition when it comes to PPL groundschool DVDs.

This was probably due to a combination of factors; the quality of these particular DVDs, the cost of creating and marketing a new collection, and the size of the Private Pilot market.  However, it’s the quality of the DVDs that clinches it in our view.

The explanations and multimedia gave you a groundschool class that you can refer back to again and again, with all the convenience that a DVD set provides. The quality was excellent, and as with most things in life, you get what you pay for.  Even when you’ve gained your PPL you would find these DVDs useful for revision on those days when VFR flying is not possible due to the weather.

Sometimes, even the keenest student pilot can sometimes have his or her enthusiasm dampened a little by having to study one part of the ground school syllabus or another (although for others, such is the love of the subject that even the driest part of the Air Law material is easily digested!), so anything that makes learning easier and quicker is worth the investment.

However, we shouldn’t rest on our laurels once the PPL exams have been passed. All pilots would benefit from regular revision of these subjects lest they forget them and fall into bad habits. One never stops learning in aviation and a bit of revision for the qualified PPL holder on a cloudy or foggy day using your collection of ground school manuals is time well spent.
