Aviation Fundamentals is a series of air transport textbooks that incorporate instructional design principles to present content in a manner that is engaging to the learner, at an accessible level for young adults, allowing for practical application of the content to real-world problems via cases, reflection questions and examples. Each textbook will be supported by a companion website of supplementary materials and a test bank.
The series is designed to help facilitate the recruitment and education of the next generation of aviation professionals (NGAP), a task which has been named a ‘Global Priority’ by the ICAO Assembly. It will also support education for new air transport sectors that are expected to rapidly evolve in future years, such as commercial space and the civil use of remotely piloted aircraft. The objective of Aviation Fundamentals is to become the leading source of textbooks for the variety of subject areas that make up aviation college/university degree programmes, evolving in parallel with these curricula.
