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.
Richard Taylor 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.
Each chapter of this invaluable handbook guides you through possible flight problems and sample flight situations that include:
- The “bug-on-the-windshield” technique- how to put the airplane on the glide path and keep it there
- The use of VOR and ADF for VFR pilots
- Turbulence- the more you know about it, the better you can handle it
-Density altitude- the last under-stood altitude term, without a doubt the most ignored by pilots, and the most important of them all
- Night flying- tips and techniques for making your eyes work more effectively
- …and more
FAIR-WEATHER FLYING is a collection of one seasoned pilot’s ideas of how to get more out of your airplane and the time you spend strapped into the pilot’s seat.
