Great book
by Claudia from CHUALAR CA USA

by Peter from Albuquerque NM USA 
Review: Much prefer the older hardback version. With the amount of reading this volume gets, the paperback edition just doesn't hold up. Content seems to mostly be an updated, but watered down version of the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, which is available free in download on the net. The Jeppesen volume does have good (though occasionally confusing) graphics. Found a few, just plain out and out errors, so if something Jepepsen says, just doesn't make sense, double check it with another source (e. g. PHAK)

Can't Beat It
by Nancy from Bloomfield NY USA 

Pros: Fantastic graphics!
Cons: Maybe too much information, which could be overwhelming.
Review: I'm familiar with this product from 20 years ago. It was good then, but now it's really something! The color graphics are amazing and really help you understand and remember the material. It's well organized and packed with everything you need to know to pass the FAA Private Pilot written exam. It includes nice-to-know examples, too, that a Private Pilot won't need, but might be interested in if planning to continue to move up in ratings. Those examples are set off with a border and blue background, so you know it's not needed for the FAA exam. I wouldn't consider attempting my Private Pilot rating without it!

Best you can buy
by JOHN from Concord CA USA 

Review: I've spent a ton of cash on various Private Pilot training systems. I was never satisfied with any if them until I bought the Jeppesen system. This is a college style text book. Well written, quality printing, and well organized information. If your working on your pilots license, stick with Jeppesen. It's head and shoulders above Gleim, King, and Sportys. I know. I wasted my money on all of those.

Very good ground school reference text
by K. from Auburn WA USA 

Pros: Good visuals and text highlights. Good, straight-forward explanations
Cons: Some charts are a little small, making it challenging to get accurate calculations in exercises
Review: Currently using the Private Pilot Manual for my ground school curriculum. I find most of the visuals used in the explanations very helpful and like that they use a variety of photos and diagrams. I also appreciate the highlights used in the text where salient information is emphasized. Some of the graphs (especially multi-step, i.e., take-off and landing distances) are a little small in scale which make getting accurate results a little challenging. Overall, a very good text. I highly recommended it as a good basic reference for VFR flying fundamentals even if you're not planning on taking a formal private pilot ground school.

I would buy this product again.
by David from Pittsburgh PA USA 

Pros: Excellent description of principles and very clear explanations
Review: As an older student prepping for the pilot's exam, I have been having difficulty picking up some of the principles required to pass the exam and have used 3-4 different manuals with limited success. This manual however is very clear and is incredibly easy to follow. I wish I had purchased this manual first; I would have saved a few hundred dollars. It goes through each area, giving the necessary topics but also includes little notes of interest regarding each area or topic. Very helpful and interesting to read.

instructor said the revisions made it worse
by Christine from CT USA 

Pros: great graphics and easy to read
Cons: missing some basics in the revision
Review: I think overall the textbook is solid, but when I was looking to read up on s-turns, turns around a point, and rectangular courses, it was very difficult to fine (not in the index) and sort of buried in the text. this is FAA basic material so it was strange that they excluded out of the volume. i order the FAA handbooks just to make up for it.

Simply excellent book
by Roberto from Lincolnton NC USA 

Pros: This very complete and well explained, besides bringing illustrations that support the study.
Cons: In this book not found any against, rather, I have been very helpful in my studies.
Review: It's great to learn the theory, is very complete in every chapter, and the best, is that it helps a lot, to bring detailed illustrations, with which one can support the learning process. A great book for those who are studying aviation.

Every pilot should have one.
by Ben from Asheville NC USA 

Pros: Great reference
Cons: The price
Review: I have owned a copy of this book for years and use it to help explain all the things that a private pilot should know to my flight students. (I have been a CFI for nine years.) I bought this copy for my fourteen year old grandson who is now very interested in becoming a pilot because I think it is the best reference available for aspiring, new, and old pilots.

Worth the cost, would definately buy again
by Savage from Charleston WV USA 

Pros: Great color graphics, much more information that competitors books.
Cons: none
Review: I checked out many differnt private pilot training manuals from the local library. Most were in the $20 to $30 range. When I was ready to buy, I researched the Jeppesen and read the reviews. At first I struggled with the cost. Within 10 minutes of recieving it I was very pleased. You get what you pay for. If you want a low end book buy one of the other brands, but if you want the best, buy this one. Would definately buy this again, very glad I didn't buy one of the others.

Necessary Reading
by Benjamin from Salt Lake City UT USA

I like the GLEIM book better.
by Trex from Tucson AZ USA 

Pros: Nice cover.
Cons: Dry.
Review: My wife and I used Sporties DVD's, Jeppesen,Gleim and Rod Machado during training at a part 61 school here at RYN. I got the most out of the Gleim books but the real issue for us was going to a good ground school. We will take all the rest of our training at a part 141 school. Finally finished at American Flyers, real professional instructors.

Assumes too much up front knowledge.
by Mark from Bradenton FL USA 

Pros: pictures
Cons: Poor explanation of many details.
Review: Advisable to start your lessons before reading too much. They assume you know some of the buzz words and they also assume you have some basic knowledge of flying. They do not adequately and thoroughly explain everything as well as they should. You will need an instructor to better explain the proper use of radio communications, etc. They should better explain the different class of airports and advise how to fly over or under ceiling and floor altitudes. If anyone knows a better training manual please let me know.

Good Book
by Steven from  

Pros: Great definitions and diagrams
Review: I bought the book because I'm working on becoming a commercial helicopter pilot. The book has good explanations of terms and often times it has a diagram that follows. The book is more geared toward fixed wing aircraft, but a lot of it applies to helicopters as well. So it was a good book, but there were some parts I didn't read, because they dealt more with fixed wing.

Too much unrelated examples with too many pictures.
by Anthony Garcia, Ph.D. from Hearst Museum of Anthropology, Berkeley, California 94720 

Pros: organization
Cons: too many examples to make a point.
Review: Enjoyed the text book overall. However, the text could have accomplished each topics with much less over-use of diagrams. The books seems to target junior high school audience. I have the Jeppesen Private Pilot Manual from 1977 and although could have used more, its format was much more desirable for a more mature audience. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed all the colors and photos you used. However, black and white descriptions of action gets the example across with more bang. The book was much too big to lug around. I might try your CD version and test drive it.

Great Manual - Needs More Detail
by Phil "RittSea" Ritts from Lehigh Valley, PA 

Pros: Great illustrations. Organized very well.
Cons: Summarizes all required suject areas without covering any one in great detail.
Review: This is a fantastic manual. The illustrations really help teach complex concepts in an easy to understand format. It's essential reading for new pilots like me. However, don't expect to read this manual and walk away with all of the knowledge that you need for your private pilot's license. Flying requires an enormous amount of technical and regulatory learning. This manual sufficiently summarizes all of the subject areas you need to know for private pilot training. But it should be treated as just the first (perhaps the most important) of many manuals you should study for your private pilot license.

Incredible Book
by Mark Howard from Edmond, OK 

Pros: Excellent content. Incredible illustrations.
Cons: None, other than being heavy because it has so much information in it!
Review: I had an old version of this book when I was in pilot training in 1985. The new version is incredible, with beautiful illustrations throughout that make learning even the most difficult concepts much easier. I now review chapters periodically for a refresher and learn something new every time I pick it up. It is up to date on the latest regulations, technology, etc. I highly recommend the book.
