ATPdigital for iPad

Once you have activated your software on your PC or Mac you are able to download an iPad version from the Apple App Store. When you open the app, you will be asked to enter the username and password from the welcome email you received; use the same details you entered on your PC or Mac.

On the ‘Dashboard’ you will see, in the bottom right corner of the screen, buttons for ‘Sync now’ and ‘Update content’. We recommend you get in the habit of updating the iPad content at the beginning of a session and synchronise it when you finish. The PC and Mac versions synchronise automatically when you are connected to the internet.

Note, the iPad app needs iOS 10.0 or later to run reliably and updates are not possible for older versions. This document has more details about which versions it will support.  ATPdigital for iPad – devices + OS supported

The ‘CAPs’

The ‘CAPs’ are documents previously published by the UK CAA, containing planning data and charts for the aeroplane and helicopter types used in the EASA/UK CAA examinations. It used to be that you would be issued with one of these documents when you sat the appropriate examination. However, in UK exams the CAPs are no longer used in their entirety; rather you will be provided with extracts of the pages relevant to the questions in your exam. We still refer extensively to the CAPs in the course and you will need hard copies; if is not practical to do the calculations from the tables on-screen. You may purchase printed and bound copies of the CAPs from us here, (select ‘I want to buy course materials or equipment’) or alternatively download copies here to print yourself.
