Conocimiento General de la Aeronave Paraninfo
Book that gathers theoretical knowledge for the obtaining of the Private Pilot License, in the matter of GENERAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE AIRPLANE, PERFORMANCE AND FLIGHT PLANNING.
This second edition is supervised and verified by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and its author, Joaquín C. Adsuar, develops the official syllabus of the Joint Aviation Requirements (JAR).
This manual includes all those comments or questions that, in the opinion of the author, could contribute so that the fundamental objective doesn’t move from the opportune learning to the simple passing of a test.
The student applying for a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) must demonstrate a level of theoretical knowledge appropriate to the attributions granted to the holder of that licence (JAR-FCL). The requirements for the theoretical knowledge examination are contained in a programme (sílabus) comprising nine subjects: Air Law, General Knowledge of the Aircraft, Performance and Flight Planning, Human Factors, Meteorology, Navigation, Operating Procedures, Principles of Flight and Communications.
Basically this book develops in its entirety the official JAR program for the private pilot license on Aircraft General Knowledge, Performance and Flight Planning.
The author of this book, Joaquín C. Adsuar, with more than 30 years of experience in theoretical and flight teaching, fully develops the official JAR program for the private pilot's license on GENERAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE AIRCRAFT AND PERFORMANCE AND FLIGHT PLANNING and also includes all those comments or questions that, in the opinion of the author, could contribute so that the fundamental objective doesn’t move from the opportune learning to the simple passing of a test.
