Did anybody used onlineaviationtheory for the ATPL exams recently?
I used it for the CPL subjects and found them very good but would like to hear about opinions regarding the ATPL.

Cheers

I used Ron Newmans study material for the Commercial Air Law... I passed the exam on the first try today. I also used AFT notes and practice exams...

It seems that CASA is changing regs a lot because the Exam I sat today had a lot of new stuff in it...

The nice thing About Ron's method is that he does a great job of referencing the relevant sections in the pubs... So, using his course with the pubs in hand is very helpful.

I will sit ATPL airlaw next week... the Comm exam I sat today was very tough...

Hi team,
I thought I'd add my recent experiences for people considering how to approach the Theory component of their CPL(H)

I completed my TIF with Randall Todd at PHS last year. I was really impressed by his approach and the set up at Moorabbin.
In order to familiarise myself with the Flight Training, I wanted to understand more of the theory behind flying and get a strong handle on the course content.

After reviewing all the options available, I decided to sign up to http://www.onlineaviationtheory.com as I tend to work well in a Self-Paced Learning environment. The flexible nature of this training helps me balance my business with my learning.
Everyone is different, so go with what works for you based on your previous experiences.

So far, I've found the explanations really easy to follow and understand. Being able to test yourself with the questions in each section, and the exam in each subject is a great way to sharpen your focus and see where you're still deficient. A lot of people recommend just focusing on one subject at a time. I tend to agree.

If I run into difficulties throughout the course, my plan is to complete the in-house theory training at PHS whilst undertaking my flight hours.

I hope this helps others as they choose their stepping off point.
Good luck team.

I would highly recommend Online Aviation Theory , Randall is a very approachable guy, has plenty of time to explain things to newbies...

I am using Ron Newman's at the moment and it's great.
Although due to internet issues I have decided to go to class to do it more quickly.
It is very informative and as mentioned above the questions help a lot.

Hiya

It's been 3.5 years since last reply.

Is there any new info about Ron Newmans online course we should know about?

It sounds like a great way to immerse oneself in the theory.

Combine that with the recommended books and you'd have a solid foundation.

Kindness always
