Updated to cover modern cockpit automation, Fly the Wing, Third Edition, provides pilots with valuable tools and proven techniques for all flight operations. Also new to this edition is a companion CD-ROM with a complete glossary of flight terms, printable quick-reference handbooks, and numerous supporting graphics. Career aviators and new pilots alike will find that Fly the Wing offers important insights that other books miss. Although written primarily for commercial pilots, Fly the Wing is fascinating reading for small-aircraft pilots, too. With a realistic look at the problems that confront pilots of large aircraft, authors Webb and Walker provide wisdom applicable to all pilots. Written in an easy, conversational style, this valuable reference progresses from ground school equipment and procedures to simulators to real flight. Along the way, Fly the Wing covers the physical, psychological, and technical preparation necessary to acquire an ATP rating. Fly the Wing is, by itself, a course in advanced aviation. With clear explanations and in-depth coverage, one expert described this book as "a full step beyond the normal training handbook."
