The Advanced Pilot's Flight Manual is the most thorough book available on airplane performance, loading, and stability. Prepare your students for flight with this updated classic.

The Commercial license preparation manual from Kershner's "The Flight Manuals Series." Updated and edited by his son William C. Kershner.

The Advanced Pilot’s Flight Manual has long been a standard reference for pilots transitioning to advanced models and types and preparing for the Commercial Pilot knowledge and flight tests. This book bridges the gap between theory and practical application, covering the fundamentals of airplane aerodynamics and aircraft performance. Rules of thumb are used throughout as a means of presenting a clearer picture of the recommended performance parameters, and increasing understanding of the variable factors that affect aircraft operations such as altitude and temperature. Knowledge of these thumb rules will enable pilots to maximize performance when operating faster aircraft and at higher altitudes.

Chapters are dedicated to:

  • Airplane performance and stability for pilots
  • Checking out in advanced models and types
  • Emergencies and unusual situations
  • Advanced navigation
  • High-altitude Operations
  • Preparing for the commercial knowledge and practical tests

With over six decades of experience as pilot-incommand in more than 100 types and models of airplanes, Bill Kershner was an FAA/General Aviation Flight Instructor of the Year, named Elder Statesman of Aviation, and inducted into the Flight Instructor Hall of Fame. His son, William C. Kershner, was soloed by his father, and holds Flight Instructor and Airline Transport Pilot certifi cates. He has fl own 22 types of airplanes in his over 15,000+ hours of fl ight time, ranging from Cessna 150s to Boeing 777s.

Excellent Review of Aeronautical Basics

  • By John from Las Vegas NV USA on Wednesday, May 20, 2020
  • Pros: Easy read. Excellent refresher.
  • Review: Excellent review of essential aeronautical principles. It straightened out some misconceptions I’d held for decades. Written for pilots lacking technical background. Some illustrations are a bit cluttered and might confuse readers. However, over all, a worthwhile read for conscientious pilots.
