Hmm. Was it just me that read the term 'roadmap' to mean the direction/general course of action the OP should take to secure his PPL rather than a physical AA map showing roads.......?

Idiomatic English confusion for a non-first language speaker?

For younger readers. When I was a lad there was a series of books called "TEACH YOURSELF".
One was "teach yourself to fly"--I vaguely recall a case where a guy stole a plane-tried to fly it and crashed. In his defense he said that he had learned to fly from the book.
I actually knew someone who taught himself aerobatics---probably not adviseable but he survived.
