Coming Soon – The PPL Companion – New Piloting Book
We’ll soon be releasing a new book aimed at those who are working through their Private Pilot’s License, or thinking of starting it soon.
The PPL Companion – 45 Lessons to Guide You Through Flight Training has been written by Daniel Coleman, a PPL holder who has been through training and now puts his experiences in an easy-to-follow guide to help you make the most of becoming a pilot.
The Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) usually takes a minimum of 45 hours of training. With The PPL Companion, you have a guide to help you along the way.
As your training advances, so does the content in the 45 chapters of this book, which mirror your progress and offer helpful insight into the actions and decisions you will make as a trainee pilot.
Inside you will find chapters on topics such as:
- the reasons for learning to fly
- how to find a flying club
- what to expect on your first lesson
- the subsequent milestones you’ll reach along the way.
Further chapters look at the social side of being a pilot, as well as anxiety and how to fund your flying, plus aspects such as visiting the control tower and learning to look under the engine cowling for a greater understanding of aircraft.
Unlike other books on the market, this is less about the author’s personal journey and more about the research, actions and decisions one should make as they progress through their flight training, covering why one would learn to fly; how to find a club; what to expect on their first lesson; and other non-technical titbits to prepare for their journey. Further chapters look at dealing with the social side of flying, financial aspects and anxieties of flight training as well as other often overlooked variables such as widening networks, visiting the control tower and taking a look under the engine cowling for greater understanding and so on.
Written in an informal style, The PPL Companion is an easy and relaxed sounding board for anyone considering flight training or already undertaking lessons.
The PPL Companion – 45 Lessons to Guide You Through Flight Training is available from the end of March 2019 from Destinworld Publishing, as well as good aviation retailers and book stores.
