Falling apart

  • By Kenneth from Crandon WI USA on Thursday, November 05, 2015
  • Review: The content of the book is very good. But, I purchased the book a little over a month ago and it is falling apart already. For what is charged for this book, it should at least hold together.

instructor said the revisions made it worse

  • By Christine from CT USA on Tuesday, September 11, 2012
  • 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.

  • By Peter from Albuquerque NM USA on Monday, October 21, 2013
  • 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)

Assumes too much up front knowledge.

  • By Mark from Bradenton FL USA on Thursday, June 25, 2009
  • 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.
