Pre- Reading

The basics of all the above should already be understood from the PPL syllabus with the exception, perhaps, of Types and Understanding of Instrument Approaches. The Air Pilots Manual Volume 5 (The old Trevor Thoms) is a good place to refresh your knowledge.

Where do people usually struggle on the course?

Like it or not, the UK CAA do not allow electronic flight planning tools to be used in the examination. The area where most people have problems is with getting back into the swing of using the CRP-1/CRP-5 ‘whiz-wheel’.

How do I book?

Once a booking is made, a mock paper is sent out, to remind you of good old-fashioned flight planning! A £50 deposit secures your booking.
