Product Summary

Tips to Fly By offers techniques, performance tips and rules of thumb. Richard Collins takes you to some of the tight spots in advance and lets you think through them ahead of time. This book imparts the flying savvy most pilots would need to log a thousand more hours to learn.

Author Richard Collins organizes his tip-filled text into the natural progression of a flight: ground work, takeoff, climb, en route, descent and landing. He then shifts focus to flying high-performance singles, twins, emergencies, busy airport operations, night and mountain flying, and much more. Collins concludes with his own selections and suggestions for airplanes, instruments, and cockpit necessities. This book imparts the flying savvy most pilots would need to log a thousand more hours to learn.

Pilot-in-command experience thousands of hours at the controls of virtually all types of light aircraft in all flight conditions is the main ingredient of this book by veteran pilot Richard Collins. He takes you to some of the tight spots in advance and lets you think through them ahead of time. Old hands can compare and add to their own experience; those new to the game can avoid some surprises.

Tips to Fly By offers techniques, performance tips and rules of thumb. For example:


  • How to devise a tailor-made preflight checklist for your machine, your flight, and yourself.
  • When to change altitude for optimum fuel management; effects of loading on performance.
  • What to watch for when flying low and slow; stall/spin avoidance.
  • How to move up to higher-performance single- and twin-engine aircraft.
  • Why night flying is really IFR flying.
  • When, why, and how to practice flying skills; obvious reasons often ignored.

... and much more, including the finer points of flying that make the most of your airplane and make you a better, safer pilot.
