      ATPL Flight Instruments: Demo
    • This multimedia Computer Based Training (CBT) course has been specifically designed for pilots wishing to study for the EASA ATPL Flight Instruments syllabus, though it will also be of interest to all pilots who wish to deepen their understanding of this important topic. The subjects covered range from the fundamental first principles behind the simple ASI and pressure altimeter to full descriptions and detailed graphics of modern avionic systems such as Radio Altimeter, INS, IRS, FMS, EFIS and HUD. This CD-ROM brings together the world renowned technical and teaching experience of CAE Oxford Aviation Academy‚Äôs specialist ATPL instructors and the design talents of CAE Oxford Interactive. The use of this interactive multimedia course enables student professional pilots to become familiar with all aspects of the JAA/EASA ATPL Flight Planning syllabus, including many practical examples and exam-type questions, and to do so in a more enjoyable and rapid manner than with previous paper-based courses.

      You can be confident that in using this course, you will benefit from CAE Oxford Aviation Academy's unequalled experience in successfully preparing thousands of students for ATPL examinations.
