Covers all the aeronautical knowledge required to pass the FAA knowledge exams and operate as a Private or Commercial pilot.
You couldn't ask for a more complete textbook on how to operate general aviation airplanes in the United States—now in hardcover format. Ground School (previously published as Private & Commercial) walks you through everything you need to know to pass both your Private and Commercial FAA Knowledge Exams. The Fourth Edition reflects current rules, procedures, and the FAA’s areas of emphasis including aeronautical decision making, runway incursion avoidance procedures, risk management, and GPS operations.
The information is organized into easy-to-digest chapters, and the text is supported with more than 500 full-color illustrations and photographs. All the knowledge requirements are covered, including aerodynamics, the airplane, performance factors, physiological factors affecting the pilot, weather, regulations, charts and airspace, airport operations, navigation, and flight planning, including specific instructions on how to use the flight computer. Helpful marginal notes are provided for quick definitions of terms, further emphasis on key points, and mnemonic devices that can be of tremendous benefit to study. Each chapter closes with review questions highlighting the important facts. Ninety percent of the text is for the Private, and the additional ten percent, well-separated, will raise you to the Commercial standard.
Written by a remarkable editorial team consisting of civilian, airline, and military pilots, flight instructors, professors, FAA representatives, and industry leaders, this is the textbook trusted by leading universities worldwide. The logical organization makes it equally effective as a home-study text. Foreword by Barry Schiff
