Follow author LeRoy Cook on a tour of the retractable-gear airplanes you-ve always wanted to learn more about. Flying the Light Retractablesis an informative journey through the development history of each plane with plentiful insight into design considerations, evolutionary changes, advantages and disadvantages of the different models, and background on maintenance issues. Pilots or potential owners will really get a sense of the subtle or not-so-subtle differences; this is like going flying with the author and having the advantage of his eye for detail and sense of observation.
Cook gives a unique perspective on ergonomics, control feel and other features that work or don-t work for the pilot and/or passengers"¦it becomes obvious that he has spent many hours in different makes of aircraft. As a potential buyer, you-re most interested in performance and economic trade-offs, and Cook excels in such details. His balanced discussion stacks the technical detail (speeds, loads, etc.) against economic factors. You-re not swamped with numbers, but you come out with a good sense of what you need and want to know about flying these light retractable-gear airplanes.
Beautiful photographs (some in color) accompany each airplane discussion, covering these aircraft: Mooney M20C, M20J 201/MSE, Beech Bonanza 35, Beech Sierra, Cessna Cardinal RG, Cessna Cutlass RG, Lake Buccaneer, Piper Comanche 180, Piper Arrow, and Rockwell Commander 112TC
