Whether you are a piston pilot preparing for turbine ground school, a transitioning military pilot boning up for that first corporate or airline interview, or an old pro brushing up on turbine aircraft operations, The Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual is designed for you. Authors Greg Brown and Mark Holt cover all the basics, clearly explaining the difference between turbine aircraft and their piston engine counterparts.

Addresses:

  • High speed aerodynamics
  • Coordinating multipilot crews
  • Wake turbulence
  • Navigating in high-altitude weather
  • and More

The Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual clarifies the complex topics of turbine aircraft engines and all major power and airframe systems, subjects that are pertinent to flying bigger, faster, and more advanced aircraft. It includes discussions on high-speed aerodynamics, wake turbulence, coordinating multi-pilot crews, and navigating in high-altitude weather. You’ll be introduced to state-of-the-art cockpit instrumentation including flight management systems (FMS), global navigation (GPS), and headup guidance systems (HGS or HUD). You’ll also learn the operating principles of hazard avoidance systems including weather radar, ground proximity warning systems (GPWS) and predictive wind shear systems (PWS).

This Third Edition of The Turbine Pilot’s Flight Manual details the concepts and operational principles of the latest-generation cockpit instrumentation, navigation (RNAV/RNP), and communication procedures and equipment (datalink and ADS-B) that are only just now becoming operationally available. Also, learn about the latest engine performance management techniques (such as reduced vs. derated thrust). Included are a glossary of airline and corporate aviation terminology, handy turbine pilot rules-of-thumb, and an updated turbine aircraft “Spotter’s Guide.” The authors clarify these complex topics with a wealth of illustrations many now in full color! Additional information is available online where readers can access narrated color animations that make these systems easier than ever to understand.

Includes a glossary of airline and corporate aviation terminology, handy turbine pilot rules-of-thumb, and a comprehensive turbine aircraft Spotter's Guide.

Softcover, illustrated, 8.5" x 11", 274 pages.

What people are saying:

"This text should not only improve the hiring opportunity for pilots, but also add hours of sleep to nights between ground school classes… Where was this manual when I needed it?"—Dan Russell, captain for a commercial airline

" An extraordinarily well-written book with a vast amount of information to enhance the knowledge of any turbine pilot."—Bill J. Niederer, B-737 pilot

"The most comprehensive and complete information available to any aspiring commercial pilot. A basic knowledge of systems and terminology is invaluable, not only for initial training but also for your presentation during the interview process. A must read!"—Dick Ionata, retired senior captain for a major airline.

  • By Andrew from Brooklyn NY USA on Wednesday, July 08, 2015
  • Pros:
  • Review: Very good book. Everything that you need to know about turbine powered airplane, explained in plane language. Very good prep for interview.
    Strongly recommend this manual.

JUST ABOUT ALL THE INFO YOU COULD WANT.

  • By Lynda from Leesburg FL USA on Tuesday, June 17, 2014
  • Pros: Well-written and illustrated.
  • Review: I'm not a pilot, and I never will be. However, I am interested in aviation and what makes planes fly. To this end, this book is packed with info and very helpful illustrations, and I reread many parts more than once, due to the technicality of the subject matter. However, I now can identify the turbines and compressors of a two-spool turbine engine. Not that I ever expect to need that knowledge, but it's satisfying to me to be able to store it away in my 70-year-old mind and recall it at will.

I would buy this product again

Good read

  • By Anton from Chicago IL USA on Thursday, July 09, 2009
  • Pros: Easy read. Flow is good.
  • Review: The book is well written and specifically aimed at the wanna-be professional pilot transition to turbine engines, who has no previous training in this area. It has been helpful to me in understanding turbine basics, and everything that goes with flying bigger airplanes higher and faster. I would recommend this book.
