      ATPL Piston Engines: Demo
    • Whether you are a student professional pilot needing to prepare for ground examinations, or a general aviation pilot wishing to learn more about how your engine operates, CAE Oxford Aviation Academy's brand new interactive multimedia CD-ROM, on Piston Engines, is for you.

      If you are a student professional pilot, Piston Engines will teach you Piston Engine theory, up to the standard required for the Air Transport Pilot's Licence theoretical knowledge examination. The CD-ROM also includes JAA ATPL style tests which will give you the maximum possible assistance in preparing for the written examination.

      If you are a general aviation pilot, Piston Engines will teach you every aspect of your engine's operation far beyond the level of the PPL examination. It will also teach you how to manage your engine in order to get optimal engine performance in the air.
