Pilot Supplies and Flight Equipment

USAF pilot helmet

As well as the ground school books and other media there are several essential items needed by the student pilot. Pilot supplies range from mugs and watches to headsets and cockpit instruments.

Pooleys Flight Equipment

Pooleys is a name that is synonymous with aviation.  They’ve been in the business of supplying equipment and textbooks to pilots and student aviators for over fifty years.  Most of the Pooleys flight equipment is made in their own factory at Cranfield in Bedfordshire.  Most people first see the name Pooleys on a knee-board, Flight Computer, or Flight Guide.

Pooleys Flight Guides

The Pooleys Flight Guides are published annually and contain invaluable information for pilots.ย  Page by page they list each airfield and farm strip in the UK and Ireland and each entry contains a map of the location.

Together with the coordinates, radio frequencies, runway details, operational hours, landing fee rates, and instructions for arriving or departing aircraft they greatly assist pilots in flight planning, especially those who are visiting the airfield for the first time.

CRP Flight Computers

These circular slide-rules can be found in almost every aviator’s flight bag.  They are used for making all kinds of  navigational, weight & balance, and ongoing speed and distance calculations.   It’s worth investing in one of the tutorial CD ROMs that supplement the device itself.

Although you will use this tool many times as a student there is a tendency among qualified pilots to rely upon electronic instruments, so it’s a good idea to have the tutorial disk as a useful revision tool as well as a study guide during training.

Flight Training Books

Written for pilots by pilots. Pooley provide a selection of the current publications for the PPL syllabus, many of which are co-authored by Dorothy Saul-Pooley.
