Description

This book deals with the principles of flight and the operations
associated with flying, as they apply to practical matters in the
cockpit.

A commonsense, practical approach to the basics of flying. Everything you need to know to operate an airplane safely.

A real understanding of the principles of flight and the operations
associated with flying the way it’s done today — this book deals with
these important basics as they apply to practical matters in the
cockpit. How well you handle the airplane depends largely on your
knowledge of what’s happening and your understanding of the laws of
aerodynamics. This book will help you avoid guesswork and put you in
touch with true professional skills and attitudes. Beginning pilots can
absorb new pieces of knowledge and experienced aviators can gain insight
to improve their proficiency. Understanding Flying will give something practical to every pilot, and provide dozens of maximum-performance fine points for high-time fliers:

  • The airplane — how it flies, what affects performance, loading, and propulsion systems.
  • Flying the airplane — takeoffs and landings, flight instruments, weather, navigation, and flying when you can’t see outside.
  • The airspace — all about airports and rules of the air.
  • The pilot — certification and staying current, psychological factors and emergencies.

As a pilot, you can never know it all. But you can work consistently
on your weak areas and build on what you already know. This is the
purpose of Understanding Flying — to help you better understand the important facts of flying so that you can become a better, safer, and more confident pilot.
