This comprehensive maneuvers manual is an excellent visual aid for instructors and pilots in training, covering all the flight maneuvers required for Private, Sport, Commercial, and Flight Instructor certification. Each maneuver is depicted in detail according to type of aircraft in which the lesson will take place, states the objective of the task, and lists the FAA Certification Standards required, serving as an effective learning and teaching tool. Fully illustrated with fold-out pages that show and explain each maneuver on a one-page spread so pilots can see and read complete details on what to do, in the proper order, to successfully demonstrate all required flight maneuvers. Compact format with spiral binding provides easy access to the fold-out pages. The illustrated fold-outs show each maneuver step-by-step, so pilots understand what they should be looking for outside the cockpit window.
Contains full descriptions of stalls, slips, performance and ground reference maneuvers as well as short, soft, and crosswind takeoffs and landings. This revised fifth edition adds a new section on energy management. Also included are suggested checklists for everything from preflight to takeoffs and landings, performance, and checkrides, and an easy-to-use index so pilots can quickly refer to any desired task.
