If you are a member of aopa ireland, even a free member, all 14 are available on a memory stick or ebooks for a fraction of the price. This is where i got mine!

Does AOPA Ireland have permission to re-distribute Oxfords Material?? Im not sure that they would be very happy about people downloading them for free...

My apologies Kitty, It would appear i didnt read it correctly! Im still under the impression though that oxford would not be happy at a 3rd party selling their books for a "fraction of the price", those books are worth almost €750.

Im also not very sure if an FTO would allow you complete your ATPLs with an e copy of the books, Most guys i know find it hard getting a reduced price on the ATPL theory if they have their own books.

I guess "Fraction" wa an exaggeration.
I paid €580 for all 14 on a Flash drive.(Edition 5)
"Jim" gave me the greatest boost of all, he lent me an "Exam Prep CD" which was brilliant!

With exams over i sold the memory stick for €20 MORE than i paid for it!

Well, I will let mine go for €450, including the Exam Prep CD, which is new and never used. I just used the books. There is some minor highlighing but other than that they are perfect.

In fairness if anything is in soft copy it's almost certainly possible to download it for free once you look hard enough or get someone tech savvy enough to do it for you. I'm not saying it's right or wrong just that it's a free option if you take this route.

Saying that your required to go through a school for your exams so defo worth checking from the horses mouth how using learning materials not purchased through the school will pan out.

Personally I prefer written material and it's proven that folks absorb more information from a book than through a computer screen, forget the figure but it was a largish percentage.

Another route for the ATPLs and one which is very cost effective is to do your ATPLs through CATS, you can get the online material and all your ground school for about £900 then hammer the Bristol Question Bank out of it!!

I went with Bristol, instructors were top notch (ex Virgin, BA, Cathay, RAF) whereas I think in Oxford your just paying for the name, I knew a few lads that taught there who were just out of flight school whereas in Bristol you've got auld fellas with heaps of knowledge, experience and more importantly they were excellent at imparting that knowledge. Again this is just my take on it.

Best of luck with it!
