By William K. Kershner

If pilots know the principles of performance they can readily understand the effects of altitude, temperature, and other variables of airplane operation. The Advanced Pilot's Flight Manual bridges the gap between performance theory and practical application, combining the two to explain the fundamentals of airplane performance based on the four forces of lift, weight, drag, and thrust, as well as the effects of variable factors such as altitude and temperature on the operation of the aircraft.

The book's standardized format enables pilots to quickly find information, no matter what type of plane they fly. The text provides detailed information for the pilot who wants to be challenged.

This manual's 21 chapters cover:

Part 1) Airplane Performance and Stability for Pilots
Part 2) Checking Out in Advanced Models and Types
Part 3) Emergencies and Unusual Situations
Part 4) Advanced Navigation
Part 5) High-Altitude Operations
Part 6) Preparing for the Commercial Knowledge and Practical Tests

The Advanced Pilot's Flight Manual is the most thorough book available on airplane performance, loading, and stability. Prepare your students for flight with this updated classic.
