I have a bachelor’s degree in engineering and I am about to join a flying school in December. The schools here specialize in CPL.
So I visited a friend (who has been in training for a few months now) and started reading the recommended Oxford’s ATPL books he had.
I didn’t find the study material (including the unsolved numericals) particularly difficult but I admit when I was skimming the first unit of Air Navigation it felt like the book was written for pilots who are well versed with aviation jargon and have some experience.
Now I am not aiming for a PPL and Oxford’s aviation books are on either PPL or ATPL.
So my question is- given that I am an engineer, what basic level books should I read so I can get up to speed with subjects like Air Navigation & Air Law at ATPL level?
