Operational Flying by Phil Croucher Operational Flying by Phil Croucher
This book has very little to do with flying but everything to do with being a pilot - and the sort of training and information you need after you get your licence, but don't always get. Certainly, no one tells you that aviation runs on paperwork and that you need to be a bit of a lawyer just to read the regulations. Flying schools don't teach interview techniques either! If you work, or are in the corporate field, this book is mainly written with you in mind, but those working in larger outfits (like airlines) should still benefit. For more experienced pilots, it is hoped that some of the tips and tricks will make your job that much easier. It will also be useful to operations staff, who often have to put themselves in a pilots shoes. All the information needed to run a flight department professionally is in this book. It is the authoratitive operations manual. Soft.

British Airways by Keith Gaskell British Airways by Keith Gaskell
Few airlines can boast such a long and proud history as British Airways. From the Empire flying boats, the introduction of BOAC's Comet (the World's first jet airliner) and then into the supersonic age when Concorde entered service in the seventies. Britain's premier airline is now amongst the world's elite - flying a wide range of the very latest airliners on short, medium and long-haul flights around the world. Following the nationalised post-war years of British European Airways and the British Overseas Airways Corporation and the subsequent joining of these under the British Airway banner the book goes on to trace a successful privatisation and the ailine's freedom to pursue new ventures. Every type of aircraft operated by British Airways is described (together with detail of their particular history). Their nuances of livery styles are illustrated in colour together with details of the 34 utopia designs. British Airways has acquired airlines, invested in others and has franchise partners; these are identified and the aircraft described. A unique source of reference. 252 colour photographs. Hard. 160 pages.
