Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
[This text] should not only improve the hiring opportunity for pilots, but also add hours of sleep to nights between ground school classes…. Where was this manual when I needed it? – Dan Russell, captain for a commercial airline

An extraordinarily well-written book with a vast amount of information to enhance the knowledge of any turbine pilot. – Bill J. Niederer, B-737 pilot

The most comprehensive and complete information available to any aspiring commercial pilot. A basic knowledge of systems and terminology is invaluable, not only for initial training, but also for your presentation during the interview process. A must read! – Dick Ionata, retire senior captain for a major airline
