Modern Computer-Based Learning Software ATPdigital

Our digital learning platform is ATPdigital – and it includes animated diagrams, progress tests and performance trackers. Students are guided through their studies step-by-step, with illuminating learning content that helps to build a greater understanding of the complex theoretical concepts related to their training.

Access anywhere, anytime – online or offline

All of the ATPdigital learning materials can be downloaded to iPad as well as other iOS and Windows devices for flexible learning on the fly. Each student’s progress syncs between their devices whenever they’re connected. And the lesson search facility is perfect for students who want to revisit something specific.

Built-in progress tests

ATPdigital features a progress test at the end of each subject, with more than 80 in total throughout the course. Each student must pass these tests by 75% or more to move to the next stage of their studies. It means you can be confident that each student is developing a deep understanding of the ATPL syllabus as they progress through the course, increasing their chances of exam success.

Performance insight and student-specific mock exams

Our digital learning resources are backed up by a powerful web-based management system. This system provides a dashboard view of how each of your students is performing with their test questions as they progress through the subjects. Armed with this data, you can use ATPdigital to create personalised sets of questions and mock exams for specific students and/or classes based on the areas where they need extra practice to get exam-ready. You can send the questions digitally within ATPdigital or print them out for completion in your classroom.

Our Training Solution also includes…

Classroom Presentation Material for ATPL A and H

Support for your teaching team with access to high-quality classroom PowerPoint presentations and resources. Unlike others, our course materials delve deeper into key topics to help students develop a broader understanding to prepare them fully for their exams.


Free Subscription for your Students to BGSonline

“We have been a partner of Bristol Groundschool since we opened our flight school in 2009. We chose to use their training material because of their reputation in the industry and also personal knowledge of their system. Based on our experience and student exam results, we are very happy and will continue to choose Bristol GS for our students! We highly recommend flight schools to partner with Bristol Groundschool and use their high-quality training material.

Isabella Herl, Skyflight Air Academy


“I changed to Bristol Groundschool and my TKIs have been most complimentary. They love the graphics and videos in the CBT, which make difficult and confusing subjects exceptionally clear. I have also had excellent feedback from students. As CTKI I have also had superb backup from the technical team at BGS. Any queries have always been resolved very speedily. To sum up, I would not hesitate to recommend BGS to any ATO.”

Alastair Stevenson, Booker Aviation


“The trust our company has shown over the years in BGS is a strong indicator of the high quality of BGS’s products and services – from computer-based and printed training materials through to interactive videos and sample exams. BGS’s support and guidance has been thorough and timely, whether for day-to-day inquiries or more significant issues. We would highly recommend BGS to any future client. They have provided the resources and expertise to successfully meet our requests on every occasion.”
