A real understanding of the principles of flight and the operations associated with flying the way it's done today — this book deals with these important basics as they apply to practical matters in the cockpit. How well you handle the airplane depends largely on your knowledge of what's happening and your understanding of the laws of aerodynamics. This book will help you avoid guesswork and put you in touch with true professional skills and attitudes. Beginning pilots can absorb new pieces of knowledge and experienced aviators can gain insight to improve their proficiency. 


Traditionally known as the "red maneuvers book," this handbook complies with current practical test standards and regulations.

El objetivo del autor ha sido introducir en la aeronáutica al lector que se inicia en estos conocimientos , y asimismo ser un complemento en la información de los estudiantes, los pilotos y los instructores de vuelo. Cuando se vuela un avión, se hace con el corazón, captando las reacciones del aparato a través de los mandos como si estos fueran la prolongación de los miembros del piloto. El oficio de volar se convierte en un arte , y pasa a ser una mezcla embriagadora entre la visión del paisaje desde el aire y la habilidad de llevar un aparato tan complicado y a la vez tan sencillo.
