From First Flight to Private Certificate
This is the authoritative volume from Bill Kershner, the first in The Flight Manuals Series. Presents a wealth of practical information while encouraging decision making by students. The fundamentals of flying are clearly described in a step-by-step, informal manner that a student can easily understand. Includes detailed references to maneuvers and procedures, and is fully illustrated with the author's own drawings. The Student Pilot's Flight Manual is also intended as a reference for the Flight Review for private pilots with a single-engine, land airplane rating.
Organized in the same order a Student Pilot will progress through the flight training curriculum, The Student Pilot's Flight Manual covers all you need to know and be able to do before the flight, presolo, the postsolo maneuvers, cross-country and night flying. It is a gathering of material used in preflight and postflight briefings and in-flight instruction provided by one of the greatest flight instructors of our time. It also includes a synopsis of what to expect for your FAA Knowledge Exam and checkride. This book is not intended to just help you "get past" the knowledge exam and checkride, but includes the information for use in the day-to-day process of learning to fly airplanes.
A completely integrated 98-page syllabus provides the instructional format for flight instructors and student pilots using both The Student Pilot's Flight Manual and The Flight Instructors Manual. It serves as a guide for teaching ground and flight instruction as well as a checklist of student accomplishments from the first flight through the private pilot knowledge and practical tests.
The Ninth Edition of The Student Pilot's Flight Manual is fully revised and updated. Includes an appendix on engines and other systems along with seven color maps. Softcover, illustrated, 8 x 11, 440 pages.
