Piloto de Avión Ultra Ligero Motorizado ULM
The purpose of this book is to provide the reader, together with the necessary practical requirements, with the knowledge needed to pilot ultra-light aircraft and to pass the corresponding official examination to obtain the ULM pilot's licence.
It also includes information of interest for this type of air navigation.
This 5th edition, in full color, has been revised to adjust it to the Syllabus delivered by AESA to Flight Schools with the 2015 Regulations.
Topics covered: Ultra-light aircraft, Aerodynamics, Air navigation, Aerodromes, Flight technique, Propulsion, Meteorology, Communications, Legislation, Health training (human factors), Forms, Accidents, Aerodromes, Simulator practices, etc.
Technical level: No previous knowledge is required. The book accompanies the reader from the most basic level to achieving the knowledge required to fly safely and pass the exam with confidence.
Who it’s aimed at: Any person who likes to fly and, especially, those who want to prepare themselves to obtain the ULM airplane pilot's license.
Additional material that includes: Hundreds of test questions. List of hundreds of flight fields and runways enabled for ULM.
In addition, the buyer can request a free PDF electronic letter from the Iberian Peninsula (format 5x6 = 30 DINA4), valued at 20 euros, with hundreds of flight fields and runways for ULM, with the relative distances and directions between them, as well as reference elements for visual flight.
