Air Pilot’s Manual Volume 4 – The Aeroplane: Technical – 7th revised edition (EASA)
This “Air Pilot’s Manual” series of books was first conceived in the late 1980s and has developed from its original 4 volumes to being comprehensively and universally used. They now hold a pre-eminent position in the aviation training field. The original authors and editors (of whom Trevor Thom might ring a bell) have gradually been replaced by a superb team of highly qualified instructors and examiners and the publishers are keen to ensure that the books are accurate, up-to-date, informative and interesting. The CAA draws heavily on the series for the PPL examinations and they have long formed recommended reading. During these last 25 years, over 100.000 copies have been sold worldwide!
The fourth volume of this series contains basic Principles of Flight, together with a great deal of technical information about the airframe, systems and engines of light aircraft.
New information has been included to deal with the increasing number of diesel, glass cockpit and composite types.
The usual instruments contained in basic airplanes are included and a section on airworthiness and performance enables candidates to complete their study for the examination in flight planning and performance. With practice questions and answers at the back.
