It almost goes without saying that all pilots eventually need to perform some type of math calculation in their head while flying. For a book to help sharpen those mental skills and operate better in today's technological environment, ASA has published the second edition of Ron McElroy's popular Mental Math for Pilots.

With the increased use of electronic gadgets in airplanes, the pilot's mind is one of the most often overlooked "computers" available in the cockpit. Mental Math for Pilots helps to rev up your brainpower, allowing you to quickly to process complex equations while expanding mental acuity towards a wide range of practical math problems frequently used in flight. Quick recall and retention aids are provided for calculating temperature conversions, crosswind components, time-speed-distance problems, reciprocal headings, visual descent points and many, many more. Complex equations are explained in straightforward terms along with helpful tips, calculations and formulas to sharpen math skills and mentally keep you ahead of the game.

Whether preparing for a pilot interview, gearing up for a checkride, or just looking to enhance your aviation math skills, Mental Math for Pilots is a must read book for every aviator and is sure to help you become a more professional and precise pilot.

  • By Matt from Baroda MI USA on Wednesday, January 06, 2010
  • Pros: many good equations that make flying easier
  • Review: Overall very good. Would have liked to see more on compass turn equations. the equation to find reciprocal headings was a easy mental math equation that I've never heard before, its helped me alot in my IFR training. as I said before I would have liked to see more on compass turns (the main reason I bought the book was to try to find easy ways to figure out how many seconds to turn since I'm not a math whiz) but overall the other equations that were applicable to GA flying were informative and I did learn from this book.
