Culhane Aviation Training Manuals


Private Pilot and Recreational Pilot Ground School Course, 2024 Bilingual Edition, by Michael J. Culhane

[Private/Recreational GSC]

This complete, comprehensive course covers all required ground subjects for the Transport Canada Private pilot written examination (PPAER) for aeroplanes and for the Transport Canada Recreational Pilot Permit written (RPPAE) for aeroplanes. These topics are included:

  • CARs, Air Law, Air Traffic Procedures, Licencing Requirements
  • Airframes, Engines, Aircraft Systems
  • Aerodynamics and Theory of Flight
  • Flight Instruments
  • Aviation Weather
  • Navigation, Radio Aids and Electronic Theory
  • Flight Operations, Human Factors and Pilot Decision Making

This course has all necessary background illustrations, charts (in colour), tables and numerous example problems. All subjects are numbered and cross referenced to Transport Canada subject codes. A complete index is also provided. This course presents all mandatory subjects in a SINGLE SOURCE, which means the user need not obtain multiple, secondary texts such as texts for Air Regulations, Meteolology, Human Factors etc. - everthing needed (including chart extracts) is within one text. As well, this course is UP TO DATE for current requirements: given that standards in aviation change frequently it is very important that those preparing for the PPL/RPP written have the most current available manuals.

This course can be used for independent home study, and with the school's consent and supervision, time spent completing this course can be transferred over to meet the minimum ground school hour requirements.

To maximize exam performance it is recommended that users of this course also obtain as a supplemental text our bilingual Private Pilot and Recreational Pilot Written Test Book which includes 12 supplemental PPAER/RPPAE exams, all cross referenced to the ground school course.

422 pages, perfect bound. Bilingual English-French format. ISBN 978-1-895801-34-7.

Retail price: $199.95 CDN.
