Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Flight engineers work in three types of aircraft: fixed-wing (aeroplanes), rotary wing (helicopters), and space flight (ISS). As aeroplanes became even larger requiring more engines and complex systems to operate, the workload on the two pilots became excessive during certain critical parts of the flight regime, notably takeoffs and landings. Piston engines on aeroplanes required a great deal of attention throughout the flight with their multitude of gauges and indicators.show more
