    As your training advances, so does the content in the 45 chapters of this book, which mirror your progress and offer helpful insight into the actions and decisions you will make as a trainee pilot.

    Inside you will find chapters on the reasons for learning to fly; how to find a flying club; what to expect on your first lesson and the subsequent milestones you’ll reach along the way. Further chapters look at the social side of being a pilot, as well as anxiety and how to fund your flying, plus aspects such as visiting the control tower and learning to look under the engine cowling for a greater understanding of aircraft.

    Written in an informal style, The PPL Companion is an easy and relaxed sounding board for anyone considering flight training or already undertaking lessons.
