Pilot Maths

Pilot Maths: Aeroplanes & Helicopters

Are you struggling with your ATPL courses or do you feel you would benefit from a more 'in depth' analysis of the subject matter? Don’t let the Maths and number crunching get you down, become fast and efficient and pass the ATPL examinations first time. Our Pilot Maths courses will teach you to quickly process complex problems while expanding mental acuity towards a wide range of practical maths problems frequently used in flight.

Being confident with Maths will help you pass the tougher ATPL subjects like General Navigation, Flight Planning & Monitoring, Mass & Balance and Performance, first time, all of which have a lot of mathematical content.

So, it’s time to sharpen those mental skills that enable you to maintain better situational awareness on the flight-deck, pass your theoretical knowledge exams and perform with confidence at interviews!

1 Day Course

This course is designed specifically for those who haven’t done any maths for a long time and covers the essential material required for an ATPL course. Course content includes:

    •    Algebraic Manipulation (Necessary for ATPL level study)
    •    Trigonometry (Applications to Cross-Winds, 1 in 60 Rule and Glide-Slopes)
