      ATPL Gas Turbine Engines
    • This computer based training course in Gas Turbines teaches the subject of gas turbine engines up to, and beyond, the standard required by the JAA/EASA Air Transport Pilot’s Licence (ATPL) syllabus. Gas Turbines, together with its companion CD-ROM, Aircraft Piston Engines, covers the complete JAA/EASA ATPL Powerplant syllabus. The two CD-ROMs together contain over 500 ATPL-style questions and answers on the subject, Powerplant.

      This Gas Turbines course also covers all JAA/EASA objectives for the ATPL helicopter gas turbine syllabus, except for those pertaining specifically to helicopter engine intakes.

      Although this Gas Turbines course has been developed primarily for student professional pilots, it will also be valuable to student aircraft engineers and technicians as a comprehensive introduction to the subject of Gas Turbines. General Aviation pilots who wish to learn more about aircraft systems should also find much to interest them here.
