Barry Schiff provides a wealth of valuable information based on his years of experience.

"The best book about flying airplanes I have ever read." — Ernest K. Gann

Developing and maintaining proficiency at the controls is a key concern for pilots at all levels. In The Proficient Pilot, award-winning author and veteran airline captain and flight instructor Barry Schiff provides a wealth of valuable information based on his years of experience, concentrating on procedures and techniques not covered in other aviation books.

In his foreword to the book, Ernest K. Gann writes, "I recommend you heed Schiff's messages because they are written by a true aviator... Schiff is a true pro, and he covers the whole lofty field of airmanship with the skill and the dignity it deserves."

Illustrated throughout with helpful charts and line drawings, The Proficient Pilot should be required reading for all who fly.

  • Verified Purchase

Well researched

  • By Michael from Wichita KS USA on Monday, April 25, 2022
  • Pros: Practical flying guide that will improve any pilots technique
  • Review: Bought this book when it first was first published in 1985 as a new CFI. Captain Schiff is a well respected author who supports his statements with fact and reason. I consider this book a must read for all my student pilots, and give them a copy as part of their study books. I have also given dozens to my pilot friends, especially CFI and ATP candidates.
    Chapter 5, The World of IFR is a invaluable resource for teaching (and flying)this subject. I teach in simulators which is mostly emergency operations, and Chapter 6, Emergency Tactics is a must read for all pilots who want to be successful in handling emergencies.
    The 180° emergency return is a hot topic once again. However, Captain Schiff already covered this in 1985 with well reasoned discussion that no other author since has been able to improve upon.
    After 12,000 hours of teaching hundreds of pilots from Private to ATP, Proficient Pilot is the best book about being a pilot I can recommend.
