The Gleim Pilot Handbook is a consolidation and organization of the FAA material relevant to all pilots in one easy-to-use book. This material includes information from Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, Airplane Flying Handbook, Aviation Weather, Aviation Weather Services, and many other FAA books, pamphlets, circulars, etc.

  • Over 250 full color illustrations
  • Covers the latest in aviation technology: GPS, glass cockpits, terrain and traffic alert systems, digital engine controllers (FADEC), and many more similar topics
  • Consolidated information from all relevant FAA publications, pamphlets, and circulars
  • All information is logically organized into easy-to-read study units.
  • Great reference book for all pilots from Private to CFI
  • An excellent overall value in an aviation reference text.
  • Easy to use

The Gleim Pilot Handbook focuses on airplane flight training, rather than balloon, glider, or rotorcraft training. The Gleim Pilot Handbook was carefully designed to make it easy for you to learn and understand, while saving you time, effort, frustration, and money. This book SIMPLIFIES and FACILITATES your learning and understanding by the use of our knowledge transfer outline/illustration format.

Representing a complete ground school text, the Gleim Pilot Handbook is an integral part of the Gleim Private Pilot Kit. It is useful to all pilots as a general reference book, especially in preparation for instrument proficiency checks and/or flight reviews.
