4.0 out of 5 stars The best book for the PPL 1 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have used this book and the AFE version, this book is not nearly as complicated as the AFE, if you are learning to fly then I would suggest this as apposed to any other, as it is full of diagrams and explanations, many aren't!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The foremost set of manuals for your PPL 24 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Whilst studying for my PPL a friend suggested this series of books. It was well worth the investment, every diagram, every move explained with perfect clarity. Ideal for those who are either taking the PPL or already have and want it as a stand-by reference. I come back to it time and time again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to flying 5 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If you are either starting, or thinking of starting to learn to fly, this is a very useful book to teach you the basics of flying. It is laid out in logical steps and is fairly easy to understand. The other books in the series will go into the steps in more detail, only if you are very serious about taking your PPL

5.0 out of 5 stars Air Pilots Flying Manual 13 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
The Thom series are widely used by the CAA examination board as a reference to examination questions (as shewn in my examiners answer book). We use these books as well as the Pratt AFE series in out fast track 1-5 day PPL courses and would recommend both as really there is little to choose between them.

It is always useful to look at a range of different books on the same subject as sometimes a new perspective can make something more understandable. Students should also consider that it is essential to complete all the questions (in each chapter) on each subject to promote a better, lasting understanding. Practice examination papers are also useful but should not be used to learn the subject as that defeats the object of the examination process. Good sound knowledge combined with sensible application and pro active situational awareness is the foundation of being a safe, professional pilot.

Many students look at the examinations as an obstruction to gaining the licence which is a shame. Flying is a knowledge and rule based discipline and education plays a major part in those goals for all of us. Learn and be safe!
