last of me on this topic I promise.
Spoke to the guys at swales this morning, and this is what they had to say:
"Yes, my mock exams have kept up with the changes.
The RAASA exams were restructure so as to ensure that all pilots, whatever the category of aircraft flown, pass examinations in the general subjects of Met, Principles of flight, Nav, Engines, etc. These tests ensure that all who fly have a good understanding of the theory of flying.
Each student has to then pass a test on the category that they are learning to fly. These cats include Weight-shift Microlights, Conventional (3axis) Micro-light, Gyro Copter, and Light Sports. The nice thing about this structure is that if you start by learning Weight-shift and then change to Gyrocopter, you don’t have to restudy the General subjects, only the new category.
An advantage of using my system of Mock Tests is that each of my typical questions has a full explanation of the theory which is available to view and study at the end of each test. You don’t have to go back to the books. I call it a testing and learning system. I go further in calling it a focused learning system because the theory is focuses on a specific question."
so according to them their mock tests are up to scratch...
I purchased and downloaded it, and it has me thinking I have a lot more studying to do!!!
Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.
