Padpilot launches helicopter theory for PPL(H) 

Pilot training publisher, Padpilot, has released a new series of interactive theory books and training resources for Private Pilot Licence (Helicopter) theoretical knowledge studies. 

The set of 9 PPL(H) subjects is available on Padpilot’s new eReader content platform, allowing digital content to be accessed on any device: Android, Apple or browser. 

The series is accompanied by resources for helicopter training providers, including editable classroom presentations that mirror the book content, learning management systems, student progress tests, and compliance & technical support.

All Padpilot’s training material is written by subject matter experts and is fully compliant with the EASA syllabi. Each PPL(H) book is designed for trainee pilots and assumes no prior knowledge. Together, the series provides a comprehensive theoretical introduction to helicopter flying and covers everything required for the successful completion of the 9 ground examinations required for a PPL(H). For pilots wanting to progress to commercial qualification, Padpilot’s ATPL(H) books follow on from where the PPL(H) course ends. 

“The new PPL(H) resources are modern, interactive, and uniquely designed for helicopter pilot training. Our team of Subject Matter Experts, graphic artists and editors have created interactive, engaging books that bring PPL(H) theory to life and perfectly complement our ATPL(H) materials. We’re delighted to be able to offer a complete ground school solution for helicopter pilot training,” said Nathan Gray, Head of Learning and Development, Padpilot. 

Padpilot launched its commercial helicopter theory course in 2022 which contains only helicopter training content with relevant case studies, revision quizzes, and interactive learning aids. The publisher’s in-house graphics team created thousands of new illustrations, animations and 3D models of helicopters and their parts for the course, some of which now feature in the new PPL(H) series.

New books for a new generation

Back in 2011, Padpilot launched the first aviation theory books for the iPad. Since then, as technology has developed, they have become more sophisticated, interactive and immersive. 

Padpilot's philosophy has always been to create TK materials that assume no prior knowledge but deliver a holistic pilot education that’s entirely up to date, in a way that's relevant to the next generation of pilots.

Knowledge and understanding of the syllabus builds incrementally through the course, with many of the more complex concepts explained visually.

The new Helicopter books contain thousands of explanatory graphics, videos, and 3D models that can be explored in VR and AR (virtual and augmented reality), helping bring PPL(H) theory to life.

Padpilot PPL(H) theory titles:

  • AGK 1 - Systems & Engines
  • AGK 2 - Electrics & Instruments
  • Air Law & Ops Procedures
  • Communications
  • Human Performance
  • Navigation & Radio Aids
  • Principles of Flight
  • Flight Performance & Planning 
  • Meteorology

PPL(H) is the latest book series to be added to the Padpilot eReader platform. Other theory courses available are: PPL(A), ATPL(A), ATPL(H).
