Anyone got a PPL Confuser, which may need a new home?

Hello Everyone,

First, thanks to Peter and David for getting another great GA resource setup! Thanks!

I have embarked on the long and windy road of studying for the PPL exams and one thing that has always crossed my path during research is the PPL Confuser.

You can normally find them on Ebay - example - and copies change hands for quite a lot of money sometimes (I got one for my son recently) but some have said that there is another publication which is more up to date. I don't recall which one it is, however.

Legend has it that the author of the Confuser died and then there was a disagreement on publication rights, so printing was stopped.

I had a version that certainly was out of date, though still useful for things like meteorology. Less so for air law. is the best resource I've found. It's very reasonably priced and I found it a huge help during my revision.

I'm not sure I'd bother. I'd use one of the many online resources such as (I am sure there are others), which are far more comprehensive

This is another vote for Airquiz - its helped me for the three exams I have passed so far.

I also use the PPL Perfector which is a hard copy book and has REAL PPL exam questions in it. If I can pass those, I know that I am ready for the exam - I find it invaluable!

Best of luck I

Think that the caa revamped the Air Law exams from December 2012 and maybe some of the other subjects too. Ask your school.


A bit late, but if anybody reads this and still needs the PPL Confuser, I have a copy that I used to study for my exams in January. Even with the exams updated and the Confuser not being up-to-date, I found it a valuable resource. I used it in addition to
