This book provides invaluable discussion on instrument airmanship, weather analysis, flight planning and decision making, handling equipment glitches, partial-panel flying, and much more.
Too many fliers plod their aeronautical lives never knowing what their airplanes can really do. FAIR- WEATHER FLYING, now in a second revised edition, challenges you to venture outside the narrow channels of training days to get more out of your airplane and the time you spend in the air.
The author shows the VFR pilot and student how to "bite off chewable-size chunks of progressively more demanding situations," accepting a little more crosswind, a little more turbulence, a little less runway.
A series of short courses in a wide variety of aviation subjects of interest to all pilots who want to improve their flying skills and enjoyment. Taylor covers these topics with his own brand of insight.
An introduction to the principles of aircraft digital and electronic systems, this book is written for anyone pursuing a career in aircraft maintenance engineering or a related aerospace engineering discipline. Suitable for those studying towards licensed aircraft maintenance engineer status as part of an EASA Part-66 or FAR-147 approved course, or those taking Aerospace Engineering City & Guilds modules, EDEXCEL National Units, EDEXCEL Higher National Units or a Degree in aircraft engineering.
How To Fly is a project that brings together the world of instrumental aviation in a practical way.
This manual has been prepared with two objectives; on the one hand with the aim of explaining instrumental aviation to the student pilot who wants to get started in it, and on the other hand, with the aim of assisting the experienced pilot who is looking for detailed answers, which are scattered in numerous volumes of regulations written by official sources.
A complete guide for IFR flights. Includes information from Doc 8168, Doc4444, AIR OPS, AIP Spain and the ICAO Annexes. First edition 2019
In this landmark book, Taylor provides VFR pilots with an emergency reserve of basic IFR capability.
The pilot develops a good part of his aeronautical life inside a flight deck. In it, the multiple parameters that allow the control of the aircraft are presented through different "indicators" or instruments.
From the primitive cabins, where each of these instruments presented a specific data or value, to the most modern flight cabins, where the concept of "glass cabin" allows for a simplification of the presentations used, the book aims to cover all the evolutionary development that has marked the history of Aviation, focusing mainly on those systems, equipment or instruments that continue to shape mainly the configuration of the cabins of the aircraft that are still operating today.
