Takeoffs and Landings
Takeoffs and Landings by Leighton Collins
ASA brings an aviation classic back into print: Leighton Collins' Takeoffs and Landings—the Crucial Maneuvers and Everything in Between provides expert, flight-tested techniques pilots need in these critical phases of flight, in every contingency of arrival and departure, VFR and IFR, single and twin, tricycle gear and taildragger. This classic is about the realities of flying into and out of an airport, the practical matters of taking off and landing safely and skillfully, every time.
"With understanding comes the ability to perfect." On this premise Collins builds his analysis and insight into each takeoff and landing— not only why things happen, but how to manipulate the factors toward the desired results. Trim, control feel, flaring, correcting imperfections, airplane design characteristics, atmospheric conditions, pilot skill, airport design, where the pilot's hands and eyes are at each phase…all are clearly explained with emphasis on stall/spin avoidance and the inherent risks of flying low and slow. Readers will find five different ways of touching down, three ways of landing crosswind, a unique description of a light twin on takeoff with one engine out, and an account of a perfect flight and a good landing from takeoff roll to full stop.
In addition to pulling from his more than half a century of personal experience, Collins shares tips and secrets from his observations of airline pilots during their routine check flights, reading military manuals, attending manufacturer's flight training programs, and interviewing aviation's think-tanks: Bob Buck, Fred Weick, Howard Piper, William Lear, etc. The book's Foreword is by Wolfgang Langewiesche. Collins' son, aviation author Richard L. Collins, writes an opening note for this newly "revived" edition with new photography throughout by Tom Lippert.
Leighton Collins is reflected in this book: practical, personable, realistic, and authoritative. Leighton first soloed in 1929 in an open-cockpit biplane. He founded Air Facts magazine—editing and producing it almost single-handedly for 35 years—which was widely recognized as the pioneering force for improvement of the aviation safety record.
