    DescriptionThe FAA's Airplane Flying Handbook (previously called Flight Training Handbook) has been required reading for all pilots for more than 30 years! This book introduces the basic pilot skills and knowledge essential for piloting airplanes. It benefits student pilots just beginning their aviation endeavors, as well as those pilots wishing to improve their flying proficiency and aeronautical knowledge, pilots preparing for additional certificates or ratings, and flight instructors engaged in the instruction of both students and licensed pilots. This new edition features full-color illustrations, and expands all technical subject areas from the previous 1999 edition. In addition to updating the existing material, it also incorporates new areas of safety concerns and technical information not previously covered, such as runway incursion avoidance, use of checklists, positive transfer of controls when 2 pilots are flying together, and transitioning to turboprop and jet-powered airplanes. This handbook introduces the future pilot to the realm of flight and provides information and guidance in the performance of procedures and maneuvers required for pilot certification. It contains chapters dedicated to the introduction to flight training, ground operations, basic flight maneuvers, slow flight, stalls, spins, takeoff and departure climbs, ground reference maneuvers, airport traffic patterns, approaches and landings, performance maneuvers, night operations, transition to complex airplanes, transition to multiengine airplanes, transition to tailwheel airplanes, transition to turboprop powered airplanes, transition to jet powered airplanes, and emergency procedures. This book is the official FAA source for learning to fly and many test questions for the FAA Knowledge Exams for pilots come from this reference. Illustrated throughout with full-color graphics and photography, and includes an index.
