good day all. It is said that both maths and physcs knowledge are required to complete your ppl, cpl and saaf pilot course. Does any1 know as to which sub headings exactly are covered on these courses i.e momentum, calculas, displacement, vectors, lenear programming? Your help is very much appreciated. Kindest regards.

From personal experience:
Maths = standard trig. Being able to do mental maths is important. It's basic stuff, but you generally have to work things out under pressure. I'm not good at maths at all (or physics for that matter), and I've managed.
Physics = newton's laws, and other basic things

This is for PPL and CPL. I don't know about the SAAF, but I think that it would be a bit more in-depth.

I take it that knowing how to spell will also be an advantage!

Their textbooks seem as uninspiring as any we might find in our own Pakistan. And it's an ex-language teacher talking
