With CASA introducing the Part 61 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASR) 1998 on the 1st September 2014, this textbook covers the up to date Recreational Pilot Licence syllabus.
Bob Tait has applied some fairly obvious common sense principles to the production of these books. When students begin a course of study they probably know little if anything about the subject. Each book in this series has been written for the student – not to impress their instructors. They assume that the reader has no prior knowledge of the subject and has no special training in physics or maths.
Education is not improved by telling students things they don’t need to know. Rather than ‘baffle you with science’, the books concentrate on telling you the things you really need to know in a very simple and concise way. If you wish to delve deeper into the subject later on – that’s great! While covering the requirements of the syllabus to ensure that you pass the CASA exam, the book concentrates heavily on those elements of the syllabus that are vital for your safety. The aim is to give you confidence that allows you to get the greatest satisfaction and enjoyment from your flying.
We humans can concentrate on only one thing at a time. The information is presented in small easily digestible portions, with frequent pauses for review. Each book features regular practice progress tests and practice exams. We all learn and remember best the things that are pleasant. The book is written in a relaxed conversational style which some have even described as entertaining! One of the most encouraging things about Bob Tait aviation education has been the constant positive feed-back from satisfied students around Australia.
“If so many students have taken the trouble to sit down and send us a ‘thank you’ note, I guess we must be doing something right !”
