About Aviation Audiobooks

web size head shot AABHi, I’m Jonathan Kaplan, founder of Aviation Audiobooks. I founded Aviation Audiobooks out of frustration with the traditional training process. When I was studying to become a pilot, I noticed that often, though I had been studying the written material, I didn’t have a firm grasp of the information presented. It seemed to me as though I was just expected to ‘get it’ and if for any reason I didn’t, it was because I didn’t have ‘the right stuff’.

Undeterred, I worked hard to grasp all of the principals, and skills necessary, but longed for a better way to cement the information more firmly in my mind.

I realized that I wanted to make a difference for student pilots, those brushing up on their knowledge, and myself. I knew that one way to make learning easier, more convenient, and more effective, was by listening to audiobooks. That’s when I decided to create Aviation Audiobooks.

I knew that by also listening to the content frequently, instead of only burying my head in the books, I would absorb the information more easily, and improve my retention. Plus, I could do it wherever and whenever I liked.

It took a lot of effort and perseverance, but I realized my ambition. Now with Aviation Audiobooks I want to help you realize yours.
