Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge / Airplane Flying Handbook Combo

These FAA official handbooks, Airplane Flying Handbook (previously titled Flight Training Handbook) and Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, have been required reading for all pilots for more than 30 years.

Airplane Flying Handbook
The Airplane Flying Handbook introduces the basic pilot skills and knowledge essential for piloting airplanes. It benefits student pilots just beginning their aviation endeavors, as well as those wishing to improve their flying proficiency and aeronautical knowledge, those preparing for additional certificates or ratings, and flight instructors engaged in the instruction of both students and licensed pilots.

This book is the official FAA source for learning to fly; many test questions for the FAA Knowledge Exams come from this reference. Illustrated throughout with full-color graphics and photography.

Soft cover, indexed, 8.25"x10.75" format, 352  pages.  Published 2016.

Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge

This official FAA handbook introduces pilots to the broad spectrum of knowledge needed as they progress through pilot training. Studying this book, pilots gain the required knowledge to earn a certificate and learn the aerodynamic theory associated with airplane flight.

This 2008 edition reflects the latest aviation industry procedures, equipment, techniques and regulations. It is a key reference for all the information necessary to operate an aircraft and for passing the FAA Knowledge Exam and Practical Test (checkride). Newly illustrated with hundreds of full-color drawings and photographs!

Essential Books for a Pilot's Library
by Martin from Montreal QC Canada 

Pros: Up to date, comprehensive, informative FAA publication
Cons: Not enough pilots read and understand these books.
Review: These two up to date books lay the theoretical and practical essentials for all new pilots and serve as an ongoing review for all current ones. A comprehensive range of topics is covered in great detail and supported with clear color illustrations. Additional topics for those upgrading to additional ratings as well as human factors training make these two books indispensable.

HUGE improvement over previous edition!
by Michael from Oak Park MI USA 

Pros: Concise and informative
Review: The previous (2008) edition had an errata list nearly as long as the book. Most were glaringly obvious errors that didn't get caught before printing. It made you wonder if no one had proof read it.

This new edition corrects all of those errors and explains some concepts more thoroughly. Yes, it took 8 years for the government to just simply correct its own error-riddled publication, but they finally did it.

The weather theory section could be a bit more complete since it's important to know. I also would've liked to have a few pages of exercises rather than just the single example problem for each topic (e.g. weight & balance, performance calculations, E6-B, use of the plotter, dead reckoning, etc).

Every pilot should have these two books.
by Dave from Hemet CA USA 

Cons: Non
Review: They both have a wealth of information. One covers recommended procedures for various types maneuvers, and avionics. The other explains everything aviation. It is good to go back and review something you might be a little foggy on. It is a must have for all pilots, especially beginner pilots.

Unbelievably bad textbook
by pilot001 from North East PA USA 

Pros: Possibly better than no book at all
Cons: Inaccurate and misleading
Review: 100s (many 100s) of mistakes. Almost all the graphs have horrible errors. Text is frequently misleading. Graphs are artsy-fartsy instead of useful. Use of color is so poorly done that it is childish. Section on Magnus effect is totally out-of-place. Yo FAA...the Magnus effect produces 0% of the lift of a wing because wings don't rotate. That should be obvious. Why are there spelling errors? Can't the FAA afford a word processor?

Well designed to deliver the information
by Sharon from Pagosa Springs CO USA 

Pros: Layout of technical information
Cons: Midpoint achievement/knowledge level assessments
Review: Thought the text/picture combinations were well placed to impart the information. I think a few more practical problem applications would be a benefit.

Good general references
by Bob from Marana AZ USA 

Pros: good coverage
Cons: too broad
Review: Good reference combination. I'd like it better if a more specific target audience were selected. I don't fly turbines etc. Split out works focused on SEL for instance.

best book written to date
by jon Kreilkamp from Valley City ND USA 

Pros: students find it easy to read and comprehend
Cons: no cons I could not be happier
Review: I needed a book that was written for a classroom setting. I bought all of the books to review that were available and none came close to being useful for teaching in a classroom setting.I did not like this book at first, but, after reading it and using it, I have found it to be the best textbook for a class ever written. I have been teaching flying in a classroom setting for twenty five years. You should buy the workbook to go with it written by Dan K Dyer--excellent!
