This new edition provides all the necessities of a complete multi-engine flight training program, including new review questions for each chapter. Applicable to both U.S. and international multi-engine training programs, the book now includes three new appendices: a multi-engine rating syllabus for an integrated flight/ground training program, a new written exam for use when checking out in a new twin, and reprints of applicable FAA advisory circulars and source material for further study on all aspects of multi-engine training.
A word from the author
IAs an aviation educator, I have amassed quite a collection of books, magazines, audio tapes and videotapes. I have subscribed to just about every aviation publication available during the past 20 years, and I can't visit a pilot supply store without buying at least one book. My library includes a wide variety of federal publications available to the public and some that I have scrounged from friends in the FAA.
I must admit, then, that the methods and procedures discussed in this book are not new, unique or original; with the exception of the zero side-slip theory, there is nothing new in the aerodynamics of multi-engine flight and the handling of emergencies. This text is a synthesis of the ideas of many authors as I have absorbed them over the years, moulded and shaped by my own experience as a pilot and instructor. My thanks to all of the pilot authors whose words and thoughts have contributed to this book.I am fortunate that Les Berven, the FAA engineer whose research on zero side-slip forced changes in multi-engine training, is based right here in Seattle. Mr. Berven has checked the text to be sure that it accurately reflects his findings and has contributed invaluable information based on his experience as a test pilot and engineer.
About the author
Bob Gardner began his flying career as a hobby in Alaska in 1960 while in the U.S. Coast Guard. By 1966, Bob earned his Private land and sea, Commercial, Instrument, Instructor, CFII, and MEL. Over the next 16 years he was an instructor, charter pilot, corporate and freight Captain, and Director of ASA Ground Schools. Currently, Bob holds an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate with single- and multi-engine land ratings; and a Ground Instructor's Certificate with advanced and instrument ratings. He was recently awarded Flight Instructor of the Year in Washington State. To top off this impressive list of accomplishments, Bob is also a well-known journalist, and air show lecturer.
Bob Gardner's textbooks have been in publication since 1985 and are continually updated and expanded. Mr. Gardner writes in a conversational manner that is readable, comprehensive, and more importantly, will lead the reader to a greater understanding of the material. All his books are reinforced by the calibre of personal experience that integrates "technique" and "procedures" with mastery.
