For those who join the aeronautical world, from primary, secondary or professional studies. For future professionals, experienced professionals or simply lovers of the subject.
A book to know the environment of the airplane and everything that is done around it: the rules, the future of professions, myths, concepts, curiosities, and so on.
It is a contact with the reality of the plane and its environment, often studied in a theoretical and impractical way.
This practical book reveals the method for overcoming the fear of flying. Based on the courses that the company Wolters Kluwer Spain gives to overcome the fear that some people manifest: the fear of flying.
This guide written by an experienced airplane pilot and a psychologist specialized in self-control and relaxation therapies is the ideal one to overcome this problem present in 25% of the population.
Method with 20 years of experience and guaranteed by a 94% of effectiveness.
This book breaks new ground in the presentation of what is and should be presented as a fascinating and vitally important part of a pilot's skill. Gone are the dreary old monotone drawings of isobars and fronts, endless graphs and reams of figures and in bounce full colour photos of what you actually see - clouds and cloudscapes that tell you instantly what's happening to the air around you.
For those who fly aircraft and micros, gliders or kites this book makes the weather make sense.
The content of the book deals comprehensively with all the topics likely to come up in the PPL exams, and more importantly tries, and succeeds, to weld them together into a coherent and useful whole.

Aircraft Instruments and Integrated Systems provides a wealth of unique information covering all aspects of operating principles and constructional features of the instrumentation and integrated systems required for the flight handling and navigation of aircraft, and also for the performance monitoring of their relevant powerplants. The text is liberally illustrated with schematic diagrams, colour and black and white photographs and a number of tables and appendices for easy reference. All the instruments and systems detailed are representative of those installed in a range of civil aircraft types currently in service. The operating principles of digital computer techniques and electronic displays are emphasised.
Human Factors for General Aviation is a study of why aviation accidents happen through coverage of cockpit design, how your eyes and ears process information, factors that affect decision making, stress and the flight environment, personality factors, and how to use available resources more effectively.
From the Preface: Over 80% of the accidents in general aviation are caused by pilot error. It is the actions, reactions, and decisions of pilots that cause most accidents, not catastrophic failures of aircraft systems or air traffic control. Students learn to fly by studying the airplane, its systems, weather, and regulations governing flight. Seldom do they study the most critical component of flight, namely the human beings in the cockpit.
In Northern Europe it is rare to see two consecutive days when the weather is perfect for flight without reference to instruments. If a pilot wants to operate in the greatest variety of weather conditions and airspace, he must be capable of interpreting the instruments and must know and understand the procedures that have been designed to safely transport an aircraft and its passengers from one airport to another, in even the most difficult of weather conditions and exacting of airspace.
This book is principally intended to help prepare a pilot to pass first time what is regarded as the most demanding flight test in the world, the JAA Instrument Rating. It will also provide some useful tips for general instrument flying, and will be a handy reference manual for pilots looking to renew their instrument qualifications.
