You couldn't ask for a more complete textbook on how to operate general aviation airplanes in the United States. The Pilot's Manual Volume 2: Ground School walks you through everything you need to know to pass both your Private and Commercial FAA Knowledge Exams and prepare you for the oral portion of your checkride. All the knowledge requirements are covered, including aerodynamics, the airplane, performance factors, aeronautical decision making (ADM), risk management, physiological factors affecting the pilot, weather, regulations, charts and airspace, airport operations, navigation, and flight planning.

This Fifth Edition is aligned with the Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and includes new sections covering BasicMed and 14 CFR Part 107—Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) with specifics on regulations and operational limitations within the National Airspace System. New information on ADS-B and FIS-B technology and regulatory requirements has been added, as well as weather products to include Low-level Significant Weather Prognostic Charts, Surface Prognostic Charts, Area Forecasts, AIRMETs, and Graphical Forecast for Aviation. Information on Flight Service and obtaining an FAA weather briefing has been updated.

The information in this textbook is organized into easy-to-digest chapters, and the text is supported with more than 500 full-color illustrations and photographs (also sold separately here)and specific instructions on how to use a flight computer for flight planning. Helpful marginal notes are provided for quick definitions of terms, further emphasis on key points, and mnemonic devices that can be of tremendous benefit to study. Each chapter closes with review questions highlighting the important facts. Ninety percent of the text is for the Private, and the additional ten percent, well-separated, will raise you to the Commercial standard.

Written by a remarkable editorial team consisting of civilian, airline, and military pilots, flight instructors, professors, FAA representatives, and industry leaders, this is the textbook trusted by leading universities worldwide. The logical organization makes it equally effective as a home-study text.

Everything I Needed

  • By Mark from New York NY USA on Wednesday, January 08, 2014
  • Pros: Thorough; well written; clear; test section
  • Review: I recently retired and have been considering a return to flying. It has been 33 years since I received my commercial license/instrument rating and 30 since I have flown; I knew a lot had changed. I found this book to be an excellent review of aerodynamics, weather, FARs, airspace (which has changed quite a bit, flight planning, navigation, etc. The review questions at the end of each chapter were extensive and thoroughly covered the subjects; the answer section always clarified the reasoning for the answer.

Pilots still need to know the basics.

  • By Bob from Kensington MD USA on Monday, September 09, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review: Great book....every pilot should read this. I believe the ground school book should be consulted on a routine basis especially for weekend pilots. Just because you passed ground school years ago, it doesn't mean you still retain the knowledge. Be smart and read the basics. It could save your life!
