Soft. 328 pages.
This book is designed to tempt you to explore the wonderful world of aerobatic flight. It shows the basic manoeuvres in simple, ultra clear shaded diagrams and the techniques for those manoeuvres are simply explained.
It is also an introduction to the effects of the forces of manoeuvring flight on the aircraft structure and on the pilot's body.
The original configuration of an aeroplane's undercarriage was tailwheeled. Only during World War II did the nosewheel become common due to the longer runways required to take off with the heavy loads. After the war, the tricycle undercarriage layout became standard, but the traditional arrangement has always been known as the 'conventional' undercarriage.
A fundamental departure from previously published books on meteorology as it affects aviation. It answers questions commonly asked by pilots who are only interested in what happens in reality, why it happens and how it relates to the information gathered before setting off on a flight.
Night flight is not visual flight. The aircraft is flown by reference to the flight instruments and may be positioned using visual references in visual conditions. When there is little visual information it is a test for even the experienced pilot and should be taboo for the inexperienced. The privilege to enter this dark realm has stringent criteria. Night flight is not difficult but it must be properly planned and prepared. It is a time when your assistant pilot can be the greatest help or the greatest hindrance. There are three uses for the night rating: to allow continuance of a delayed, daytime cross-country; to allow deliberate night sectors in VMC; or to explore local scenic opportunities and rewards. Night Flight is a part of the Command Instrument Rating, an option for the PIFR and a pre-requisite for the Instructor's Rating.
