Hi all,

 

Im currently studying Bob Taits RAA BAK and was wondering if anyone who has used it to sit the RAA BAK test found it to be enough or is further study required?

Ive spoken to the instructor I will be flying with and he hasn't read through it yet so couldn't comment. Is it much different to the GA version?

 

Cheers

It is a great text and has everything you need to pass the exam. Very easy to follow and understand with the excellent illustrations.

The easyest to follow compared to the many GA texts I’ve used over the years.

A ‘must have’ reference for the future when you might have to look some things up.

They are all I studied. Conventional wisdom is that they are the best. If you have questions, you can get on the forums and ask. They are also available online of you want to study from your phone. That access is expensive and only lasts 12 months, but.

 

There are occasional inaccuracies and the author does not like to be corrected (neither do I). For example, one of the first things the book says is that if you pull the stick back, the plane goes up. Given that pulling back if you are inverted is one of the main things that kills you if you are inverted, I thought that that was an issue. Not to mention that stalling is a safety issue too. If you learn the wrong thing first, it is hard to undo.

A quick tip for new players. It’s much easier if you have a study buddy to bounce ideas off and work through questions... and to help keep you motivated... if you don’t have one ask around there’s always someone studying the same thing.

I have glanced at bob Taits books and thought they were acceptable. I did my study for GA with a correspondence school. Nobody around to study with so no study buddy and I reckon I got a first class education in all that was needed right up to commercial. I never tried RPT. I don't know if "The College of civil Aviation" is still in existence, but you can certainly learn on your own if you have the interest.

I figured id start with this text and I it wasn't enough then I could purchase another one. I currently have the next 6 - 12 weeks stuck at home and before I can start flying so I should be able to get ahead on the theory.
