This Cat-A2 level book has been developed by TEC Aviation of Copenhagen Denmark, and is so different in format from other ATB Part 66 modules including a horizontal page format and a different overall look. However, it remains fully compliant with all training needs for the Cat-A2 EASA requirements.
