KIRKUS REVIEW

A professional pilot, the author here provides a work book for the private as well as the commercial flier in which bad habits, right and wrong ways of flying techniques, and the finer points of expert flying are discussed. Night and day flights, take off and landings, proper use of flats and glide speeds, the checking and correcting of altimeters, the recognition of stall warnings, the compass, map and chart reading, ice in and on the plane, respectful treatment of a new plane, -- are all part of this refresher course as are chapters on instrument flying, and suggestions for checking individual proficiency from time to time. For those with new wings as well as those who want to keep their skill at a high level, this should have a specialized audience.
