Bush Flyingby Steven C. Levi, Jim O'Meara
The pilots who have challenged and survived the harsh flying conditions of such remote regions as the Alaskan and Canadian bush are the envy of the aviation world. These daring flyers risk their lives every day hauling passengers and cargo,but it takes more than luck and natural talent to bring them back alive. It requires knowledge,training,and painstaking aircraft maintenance. Bush Flying addresses the issues important to all pilots who want to fly in bush country: how to read the weather and adapt flight plans-pilot in cold climates and mountainous areas-take off and land on all kinds of strips,including on the ground if forced down-repair planes in the field-modify planes for freezing conditions-tell if ice is too thin to land on-and much more.
