Get ready to take flight as two certified flight instructors guide you through the pilot ratings as it is done in the real world, starting with Sport Pilot training, then Private Pilot, followed by the Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot, and Air Transport Pilot. They cover the skills of flight, how to master Flight Simulator, and how to use the software as a learning tool towards your pilot’s license. More advanced topics demonstrate how Flight Simulator X can be used as a continuing learning tool and how to simulate real-world emergencies.

Volume 2 of The Thinking Pilot's Flight Manual carries on the widely praise, penetrating, and clear-headed approach of Volume I, addressing matters of importance to pilots that ordinary flight training manuals never tough. It delves into everything from the realities of making the go/no-go decision during the takeoff roll, nailing spot landings, which emergencies to practice, and how to take babies and kids flying. It explores how we scare our passengers without realizing it, IFR training in IMC, and takes a hard look at spin training. Rick Durden is one of three 2015 recipients of the Endeavor Award, honoring volunteer pilots who have made significant contributions to flying to serve the public. For 25 years he has made flights in remote areas of the U.S. and Central America in support of conservation. He is an Airline Transport-rated pilot with experience in over 200 types of airplanes, a practicing aviation attorney who has been involved in hundreds of aircraft accident cases, writer, aviation magazine editor, safety counselor, and flight instructor.

Taking and passing an FAA Knowledge Exam is required for earning the Private Pilot, Sport Pilot, and Recreational Pilot certificates. Using the FAA exam as the premise for learning, author Bob Gardner applies practical information so readers are not only prepared for the tests, but also for the cockpit. He augments the required aeronautical knowledge by giving specific tips and techniques, checklists, mnemonic devices, and sound advice from personal experience. A full-color example of a sectional chart is provided in the back for use with the interactive exercises throughout the book. Each chapter concludes with sample FAA Knowledge Exam questions. A comprehensive glossary and index are included as well. This practical application of the FAA Knowledge Exam is not available in any other text! Included in this Twelfth Edition are internet links for useful aviation websites, weather charts, flight planning, etc., with a section showing examples of online weather sources and more (with full-color examples of weather chart products). Also included is information on the new ICAO-based flight planning form, scenario-based training, single-pilot resource management, and learner-centered grading. This is a convenient, comprehensive source for this information--everything complete in one book! With Gardner's approachable yet concise writing style, readers are able to quickly grasp the subjects, pass the required tests and checkrides, and gain an operational understanding of flight they can take straight to the cockpit. The Complete Private Pilot works as a companion textbook to ASA's Private Pilot Virtual Test Prep DVD Ground School. An integrated Flight/Ground Syllabus for both Part 141 and 61 programs is also available to accompany the textbook. Foreword by Richard Taylor.

WHAT'S IN STICK AND RUDDER: The invisible secret of all heavier-than-air flight: the Angle of Attack. What it is, and why it can't be seen. How lift is made, and what the pilot has to do with it. Why airplanes stall How do you know you're about to stall? The landing approach. How the pilot's eye functions in judging the approach. The visual clues by which an experienced pilot unconsciously judges: how you can quickly learn to use them. "The Spot that does not move." This is the first statement of this phenomenon. A foolproof method of making a landing approach across pole lines and trees. The elevator and the throttle. One controls the speed, the other controls climb and descent. Which is which? The paradox of the glide. By pointing the nose down less steeply, you descend more steeply. By pointing the nose down more steeply, you can glide further. What's the rudder for? The rudder does NOT turn the airplane the way a boat's rudder turns the boat. Then what does it do? How a turn is flown. The role of ailerons, rudder, and elevator in making a turn. The landing--how it's made. The visual clues that tell you where the ground is. The "tail-dragger" landing gear and what's tricky about it. This is probably the only analysis of tail-draggers now available to those who want to fly one. The tricycle landing gear and what's so good about it. A strong advocacy of the tricycle gear written at a time when almost all civil airplanes were taildraggers. Why the airplane doesn't feel the wind. Why the airplane usually flies a little sidewise. Plus: a chapter on Air Accidents by Leighton Collins, founder and editor of AIR FACTS. His analyses of aviation's safety problems have deeply influenced pilots and aeronautical engineers and have contributed to the benign characteristics of today's airplane. Stick and Rudder is the first exact analysis of the art of flying ever attempted. It has been continously in print for thirty-three years. It shows precisely what the pilot does when he flies, just how he does it, and why. Because the basics are largely unchanging, the book therefore is applicable to large airplanes and small, old airplanes and new, and is of interest not only to the learner but also to the accomplished pilot and to the instructor himself. When Stick and Rudder first came out, some of its contents were considered highly controversial. In recent years its formulations have become widely accepted. Pilots and flight instructors have found that the book works. Today several excellent manuals offer the pilot accurate and valuable technical information. But Stick and Rudder remains the leading think-book on the art of flying. One thorough reading of it is the equivalent of many hours of practice.

The book also features a comprehensive spin syllabus, material on multi-engine airplanes, instructing international students, teaching ground school, and setting up tests. Teaching tips and common student errors provided for: --Fundamentals of Flight Instruction (FOI) --Presolo --First Solo to the Private Certificate --Complex Single-Engine Airplanes --Light Twins --Spins --Aerobatics --Instruments

This is the reprinted facsimile edition of the manual issued to crew members of the US Air Force's sleek SR-71, now available with photos and annotations by former Blackbird pilot Richard Graham. The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird was a long-range, Mach 3 reconnaissance aircraft developed by Lockheed's top-secret Skunk Works. One of the first aircraft designed to have a low radar signature, the SR-71 could map 100,000 square miles from an altitude of 80,000 feet. Operational from 1964 to 1998, it is still the fastest jet-powered aircraft - a Blackbird once completed a Los Angeles-to-Washington, D.C. flight in 64 minutes. Naturally, reigning in all that technology and performance required some know-how on the parts of the pilots and ground crews. This massive volume, the SR-71 Flight Manual, is a facsimile reprint of the official flight manual issued to SR-71 crew members augmented with anecdotes and and descriptions of flight procedures from former SR-71 pilot Col. Richard Graham (Ret.). Divided into seven sections, the book covers in minute detail everything from the SR-71 trainer to normal and emergency operation procedures, navigation and sensor equipment, operating limitations, flight characteristics of the Blackbird, and all-weather operation. Now the official SR-71 flight manual is not only declassified, it's (at least partially) demystified as well!
