The Pilot's Manual: Flight School
New Fourth Edition Now a Hardcover Textbook
The Pilot's Manual: Flight School covers all the tasks from the current FAA Practical Test Standards for the Private and Commercial certificates. This Fourth Edition includes new information on LSA/Sport Pilot, Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) and glass cockpits, airport markings/signs, and much more.
More than 500 full-color illustrations and photographs support the text. Students can read about the maneuvers covered in their forthcoming lesson and gain both a theoretical and operational understanding of the tasks before heading to the airport. This book prepares readers for the student pilot milestones: first solo, cross-country flying, instrument flight, and night flying. The appendix provides a comprehensive airplane checkout review, which readers can use to prepare for transitioning to a new airplane type, insurance applications, or the Flight Review (BFR) ground lesson. Flight School makes it easy for students to learn the maneuvers before taking to the air, so their time spent in the airplane with an instructor can be dedicated to practice.
Includes glossary, index, and helpful appendices. Hardcover, fully illustrated, 8-1/2 x 11 format, 600 pages.
This book is part of The Pilot's Manual Series, the series used by leading universities as their standard classroom textbooks.
