Recommended Pilot training aids, manuals/books to study, prior to the start of your flying

These will greatly assist you, giving you prior knowledge for your practical flying hours and the theory required for your examinations – leaving you more time to concentrate and focus on the joy of flying in South Africa.

If studied intensively, prior to your arrival here in SA, and commencement of your course - It SHOULD shorten the period of time you may require to complete your fight training

Study on line

On Line study - http://www.flyeaa.com/
Provides various theoretical training packages. As well as giving you access to mock exams, past papers, and on-line Instructors who are available to answer your questions

Highly recommended and suggested books that are for theory and examinations.
There is a book version and CD version - either is fine, depending on which you would feel is the better method of study, for you personally - OATMedia which is a division of Oxford Aviation Training http://www.oatmedia.com/proddetail.asp?prod=SP01
