The Thinking Pilot's Flight Manual: Or, How to Survive Flying Little Airplanes and Have a Ball Doing It, Vol. 3 (Paperback)
Volume 3 of The Thinking Pilot's Flight Manual carries on the pragmatic and often unconventional approach to matters of vital significance to pilots begun in the widely praised Volumes 1 and 2. In fact, FLYING Magazine identified Volume 1 as one of its "10 best aviation books every pilot should read." As a sample, Volume 3 exposes aviation superstitions, gives an instructor's perspective on getting checked out in a new aircraft, talks frankly about buzz jobs, explains how to buy and insure an airplane, and digs into how pilots put themselves in jeopardy by worrying about the wrong things.
