You couldn’t ask for a more complete textbook on
how to operate general aviation airplanes in the United States—now in
hardcover format. Ground School (previously published as Private &
Commercial) walks you through everything you need to know to pass both
your Private and Commercial FAA Knowledge Exams. The Fourth Edition
reflects current rules, procedures, and the FAA’s areas of emphasis
including aeronautical decision making, runway incursion avoidance
procedures, risk management, and GPS operations.

The information is organized into easy-to-digest chapters, and
the text is supported with more than 500 full-color illustrations and
photographs. All the knowledge requirements are covered, including
aerodynamics, the airplane, performance factors, physiological factors
affecting the pilot, weather, regulations, charts and airspace, airport
operations, navigation, and flight planning, including specific
instructions on how to use the flight computer. Helpful marginal notes
are provided for quick definitions of terms, further emphasis on key
points, and mnemonic devices that can be of tremendous benefit to study.
Each chapter closes with review questions highlighting the important
facts. Ninety percent of the text is for the Private, and the additional
ten percent, well-separated, will raise you to the Commercial standard.

Written by a remarkable editorial team consisting of civilian,
airline, and military pilots, flight instructors, professors, FAA
representatives, and industry leaders, this is the textbook trusted by
leading universities worldwide. The logical organization makes it
equally effective as a home-study text. Foreword by Barry Schiff.
