ASA The Pilot’s Manual Volume 1: Flight School
For over 30 years, The Pilot’s Manual: Flight School has taught students the basics of flying and prepared instructors with effective pre- and post-flight briefings. Presented as a maneuvers manual, this textbook makes it easy for students to begin flight training on the ground, so that their valuable time spent in the airplane is dedicated to practice.
The sixth edition of Flight School covers all the tasks for the FAA Practical Exam for the Private and Commercial Certificates. With text supported by more than 500 full-color illustrations and photographs, students will gain both a theoretical and operational understanding of flying. In addition to covering all the maneuvers required for the checkride, this textbook also prepares readers for the student pilot milestones: first solo, cross-country, instrument, and night flight.
Also included is a comprehensive airplane checkout review, which readers can use to prepare for transitioning to a new airplane type, insurance applications, or the Flight Review.
