Authored by the exceptionally knowledgeable ground school instructor, Chris
Hobbs, Flying Beyond provides complete, unique, and informative content that not
only meets the requirements of CPL standards, it also far exceeds them. Flying

Content abounds throughout the textbook that challenges students to think deeper about topics, to better consolidate their understanding of the nuances of the title’s extensive substance.


For General Aviation pilots seeking to upgrade from their standing as PPL holders, and for students setting out on career paths in aviation, Flying Beyond meticulously serves all professionally minded aviators. For readers seeking more, Flying Beyond provides it: content that is beyond what was learned for the PPL that stretches into the broader scope of knowledge that is necessary to become a safe and conscientious professional pilot.
