Unbelievably bad textbook

  • By pilot001 from North East PA USA on Thursday, November 15, 2012
  • Pros: Possibly better than no book at all
  • Cons: Inaccurate and misleading
  • Review: 100s (many 100s) of mistakes. Almost all the graphs have horrible errors. Text is frequently misleading. Graphs are artsy-fartsy instead of useful. Use of color is so poorly done that it is childish. Section on Magnus effect is totally out-of-place. Yo FAA...the Magnus effect produces 0% of the lift of a wing because wings don't rotate. That should be obvious. Why are there spelling errors? Can't the FAA afford a word processor?
