ASA Pilot's Manual - Ground School
- 2 customer reviews.
You couldn't ask for a more complete textbook on how to operate general
aviation airplanes in the United States—now in hardcover format. Ground School
(previously published as Private & Commercial) walks you through everything you
need to know to pass both your Private and Commercial FAA Knowledge Exams. The
Fourth Edition reflects current rules, procedures, and the FAA’s areas of
emphasis including aeronautical decision making, runway incursion avoidance
procedures, risk management, and GPS operations.
The information is organized into easy-to-digest chapters, and the text is
supported with more than 500 full-color illustrations and photographs. All the
knowledge requirements are covered, including aerodynamics, the airplane,
performance factors, physiological factors affecting the pilot, weather,
regulations, charts and airspace, airport operations, navigation, and flight
planning, including specific instructions on how to use the flight computer.
Helpful marginal notes are provided for quick definitions of terms, further
emphasis on key points, and mnemonic devices that can be of tremendous benefit
to study. Each chapter closes with review questions highlighting the important
facts. Ninety percent of the text is for the Private, and the additional ten
percent, well-separated, will raise you to the Commercial standard.
Written by a remarkable editorial team consisting of civilian, airline, and
military pilots, flight instructors, professors, FAA representatives, and
industry leaders, this is the textbook trusted by leading universities
worldwide. The logical organization makes it equally effective as a home-study
Foreword by Barry Schiff.

Everything I Needed
by Mark from New York NY USA
Pros: Thorough; well written; clear; test section
Cons: Maybe a section reviewing communications specifically
Review: I recently retired and have been considering a return to flying. It has been 33 years since I received my commercial license/instrument rating and 30 since I have flown; I knew a lot had changed. I found this book to be an excellent review of aerodynamics, weather, FARs, airspace (which has changed quite a bit, flight planning, navigation, etc. The review questions at the end of each chapter were extensive and thoroughly covered the subjects; the answer section always clarified the reasoning for the answer.

Pilots still need to know the basics.
by Bob from Kensington MD USA
Review: Great book....every pilot should read this. I believe the ground school book should be consulted on a routine basis especially for weekend pilots. Just because you passed ground school years ago, it doesn't mean you still retain the knowledge. Be smart and read the basics. It could save your life!
