Air Pilot’s Manual Volume 7 – Communications – 6th 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 The original authors and editors (of whom Trevor Thom might ring a bell) have gradually been replaced by a superb team of highly qualified instructors and examiners and the publishers are keen to ensure that the books are accurate, up-to-date, informative and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!
Regularly updated, this book contains all that is needed for radiotelephony communications, including the language and procedures of radio, how to deal with emergencies and radio failure and some basic radio theory.
Useful example flights with their appropriate calls for both controlled and uncontrolled flight are contained in this volume.
Finally some questions and answers to test the student.
