Previously published by Jeppesen, Aircraft Systems for Pilots is a single-source manual of what pilots should know about basic aircraft systems. It includes a study of the fundamentals of physical matter (from which airplanes are made) and mechanics (how airplane parts act and react). Study of each type of system allows the professional pilot to stay abreast of the critical learning that must occur upon advancement into management of more complex aircraft.
Subjects covered include physics, aircraft engine types and construction, reciprocating engine theory, engine lubrication and cooling, propellers and governors, fuels and fuel systems, power management, supercharging and turbocharging, pressurization and high altitude operations, electrical principles, aircraft electrical systems, hydraulic systems and landing gear, pneumatic and deicing systems, weight and balance, instrument systems, inspections, and much more. Study questions conclude each chapter, and the book is illustrated throughout, and indexed.
In print for more than 30 years and continually updated, this Fourth Edition continues to serve as the comprehensive college textbook for pilots learning aircraft systemISBN 9781619546271
