Everything a pilot is expected to know when transitioning to turbine-powered aircraft

Whether you’re preparing for a turbine aircraft ground school, priming for a corporate or airline interview—or even upgrading into your first personal jet or turboprop—The Turbine Pilot’s Flight Manual is designed for you. With precision and a sense of humor, authors Greg Brown and Mark Holt cover all the basics for turbine pilot operations, clearly explaining the differences between turbine aircraft and their piston engine counterparts.

This 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, automation, wake turbulence, coordinating multi-pilot crews, navigating in high-altitude and adverse weather, air carrier operations, transport airplane performance, and professionalism and leadership development. You’ll be introduced to state-of-the-art cockpit instrumentation including flight management systems (FMS), global navigation (GPS), and head-up guidance systems (HGS or HUD). You’ll also learn the operating principles of hazard avoidance systems, including weather radar, ground proximity warning systems (EGPWS), and predictive wind shear systems (PWS), as well as navigation (RNAV/RNP), advanced communication procedures and equipment (datalink and ADS-B), and the latest engine performance management techniques (such as reduced vs. derated thrust). This fourth edition adds dozens of additional illustrations and updates in technology and terminology required for completion of an Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP-CTP).

Included are an updated glossary of airline and corporate aviation terminology, handy turbine pilot rules-of-thumb, and a comprehensive turbine aircraft "Spotter’s Guide." The authors clarify these complex topics with a wealth of illustrations, and additional information is available online making these systems easier than ever to understand.

Softcover, illustrated, 8.5" x 11", 400 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
