Providing basic knowledge essential for all pilots, from beginning students through to the more advanced certificates, this Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) publication introduces readers to the broad spectrum of knowledge required as they progress through pilot training. Studying this book, pilots gain the required knowledge to earn a certificate and understand aerodynamic theory associated with airplane flight. Written for the pilot preparing for a Remote, Sport, Private, Commercial, or Flight Instructor Pilot Certificate, it is a key reference for all the information necessary to operate an aircraft and to pass the FAA Knowledge Exam and Practical Test (checkride).

This invaluable learning tool begins with a basic introduction to flying and a history of flight, then explores the role of the FAA, criteria for earning the various pilot certificates, how to select a flight school and instructor, and the tests associated with earning a pilot certificate. Topics covered include aeronautical decision making, aircraft construction, principles of flight, aerodynamics of flight, flight controls, aircraft systems, flight instruments, flight manuals and other documents, weight and balance, aircraft performance, weather theory, aviation weather services, airport operations, airspace, navigation, and aeromedical factors. Appendices provide additional support including acronyms, abbreviations, and NOTAM contractions, airport signs and markings, a glossary and index.

This 2016 Edition reflects the latest aviation industry procedures, equipment, techniques, regulations, including unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and is a key reference in the FAA Airman Certification Standards (ACS). Complete with chapter summaries and illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs, this handbook functions like an “aviation encyclopedia” to expand pilots’ knowledge of their field.

Good read

  • By Kevin from Oak Harbor OH USA on Monday, May 23, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: Had some of the information my other book didn't cover that I needed for my testing.

Explains in detail the basics as well as advanced subjects of flying and the science

  • By William from Ft Washington MD USA on Monday, July 13, 2015
  • Pros: Detailed breakdown of the science of flight
  • Review: My review of this book so far and I am on the 4th chapter is excellent. This FAA approved book breaks down the basics of flight, how it happens and the science behind it. I am maybe to old to start a career in the aviation industry , but for the women or man that Is considering a career this is a must read. I would advise taking notes as you read to retain the information while you begin pilot training. I highly recommend this book. At some point I may attempt to get my ppl private pilot's license but first O told myself I would read fe cover to cover 7 books and take notes before I start any training. That's just what I chose
