From The CriticsThis single-volume encyclopedia of more than 450 pages, hundreds of illustrations, and thousands of entries is logically arranged in alphabetic order. Five pages of useful abbreviations precede the entries. A wide variety of formulas, equations, diagrams, tables, and charts add visual appeal and clarity to the explanations. Extensive cross-referencing is accomplished simply with see and see also notes.
...Author Gary Bristow, an experienced airline pilot, states in the preface that this is a book for pilots at any stage of their career. The entries assume a basic knowledge and have a technical focus. The Encyclopedia is well designed as a trainer or quick refresher of technical aviation topics.
...Bristow has apparently drawn extensively from his own flight training and heavy commercial time to compile an excellent and truly encyclopedic collection of significant technical aviation terms. Bristow has created detailed explanations of terms that are of daily importance to pilots...This book is a treasured addition to current aviation literature, and an exceptionally good value for the reader. Every school supporting any aspect of ground or flight training and every serious pilot should own this valuable resource.
