Fantastic
by norm from Lawrence KS USA 

Pros: Very nicely illustrated
Cons: none
Review: A great informative and concise book on flying. I bought this as a give for my grandson and will soon be ordering one for myself, a 'rusty' pilot who wants to start flying again.

Very useful Product (Book)
by Keith from Canton MI USA 

Pros: Down to Earch training and Common Sense and Pratical
Cons: I could find any cons but I've been flying a while and have over 150 flight hours
Review: This was a wise purchase. It is a down to earth type of educationing a flying student. As I said in the prior sentence that this book is a down to earth education on actual flight in the cockpit. Also, it is full of useful common sense tools for flight instruction that is very useful for a student. I wished I had purchased it sooner. Thank You Rod.

I LOVE this book!
by Karen from Phoenix AZ USA 

Pros: VERY clear explanations of both how and why.
Cons: that it didn't come out sooner
Review: I've been slowly working toward my private pilot's license for 2 1/2 years, and every day I read something in this book that I "sort of ran across" in my training, but I never quite got. The explanations in this book are perfectly clear, as far as what's going on with the airplane, and why.

Great Review Book
by Sandy from Placerville CO USA 

Pros: Clear, concise, simplified explanations
Cons: None
Review: Rod Machado has a knack for making clear otherwise complex descriptions of aeronautic maneuvers. His illustrations are helpful and add to clarity and simplification of explanations. Machado's well known humor adds to readability. I ordered the book so I could have ready reference anytime I wanted.

An outstanding resource
by Brian from Anaheim CA USA 

Pros: Very clear explanations of both flight theory and piloting techniques, very good illustrations
Cons: Sometimes the corny humor overloads the text and gets to be annoying
Review: This is a very good book and has certainly helped me build my flying skills. So far it has been especially helpful in the areas of flying the pattern, approaches, and landing techniques. I have a much better understanding of the approach, round-out, flare, and touchdown now. The book has helped me get the most out of my flight hours practicing in the pattern. Recommend getting the audio version as a companion to the book.

Great Instructional Book and Fun to Read
by A Customer from Asheville NC USA 

Pros: Very detailed but explains things well.
Cons: Maybe a little expensive but you get what you pay for!
Review: A great book for a student pilot all the way thru a CFI trying to learn some new tips and instruction techniques. The pictures and drawings are very good and helpful. Any pilot would benefit from reading this book and it is a fun read as well.

Good supplement to actual flight training
by Harry from Chapel Hill NC USA 

Pros: Generous use of graphics and visuals help to reinforce concepts
Cons: A bit too tongue in cheek at times
Review: I have been taking lessons for a year off and on, and this book has been a great help in providing flight prep study material, as well as for prompting questions that I can discuss with my instructor. I have found that using the book both pre and post flight lesson is a wonderful way to provide repetition, and detail, to the learning process. It is written in a much more practical way than most ground school materials are written. Anyone in the process of learning to fly should get a copy as a textbook.

I am enjoying this book
by Joseph from Kenner LA USA 

Pros: Easy style, fraught with humor and a plentiful supply of supporting pictures.
Cons: Not really a con, but I would like to see an additional section, covering the G1000 glass canopy. It is so different from previous dashboards.
Review: Unlike other books in this area, I am enjoying the written details, accompanied by adequate pictures supporting the instruction. The writing style is light with a reasonable amount of instruction. That helps when the information is almost too much too much to absorb.
As a retired educator, I am reading and underlining significant information with the intent to reread for complete understanding. Very nicely organized.
Three years ago I got my helicopter pilot's license and am trying to get an airplane add-on certification. This book is a great start.

EXCELLENT BOOK!
by Paulflies from Summerfield FL USA 

Pros: Very Informative and a lot of illustrations.
Cons: None
Review: My wife bought me both this and the Audiobook of "How to Fly an Airplane" for an anniversary gift. I love both of them, the audiobook is nice because I can listen to it while I am working, but I also like the hardcopy for the visual reference.
