How do I get a pilot’s license? Where do I start? Who can I ask? All these questions and more are answered in the FAA’s Student Pilot Guide.
For veteran members of the flying community, the question “How do I get a pilot’s license?” seems to have a simple answer. But for the uninitiated, it is a task that can seem overwhelming.
Before beginning flight training, it is important to have a basic understanding of the responsibilities, safety regulations, and other issues you will face, including the choice of a flight school, selecting study materials, study habits, and the role of the instructor, student, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This guide lays out for prospective student pilots and for those already engaged in flight training, in “how to” fashion, the general procedures for obtaining FAA student pilot, sport pilot, recreational pilot, and private pilot certificates.
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 book of maneuvers", this manual is an excellent learning and teaching aid for instructors and students, covering all flight maneuvers required for Private, Sport, Commercial and Flight Instructor certification.
Each maneuver is represented in detail according to the type of aircraft on which the lesson will be conducted, establishes the objective of the task, and lists the FAA Certification Standards required.
Fully illustrated with 64 drop-down pages showing each complete maneuver on one page for the reader to absorb all visual/textual information at once.

Many pilots resign themselves to imperfect takeoffs and landings simply because they do not realize that even professionals must work on each of these critical phases of flight.
"Making Perfect Takeoffs and Landings in Light Airplanes" shows pilots how to develop a total awareness of the situation, of the aircraft and of themselves, and how to turn that awareness into perfect takeoffs and landings.
The detailed but easy-to-follow steps given here ensure that pilots have the knowledge they need to go beyond reactions learned by heart and develop excellent flying skills. The author's easy, conversational approach to teaching speaks to all pilots who thrive on the personal challenge of striving for excellence.
Includes principles of flight, airplanes and engines, performance, weather, navigation, and more.
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.
