Streszczenie: Covers eight of the systems which comprise the essential organs of the modern aircraft. Every part of the aircraft is covered in detail in an easily read and understandable manner from the basic structure, the hydraulic, fuel, air conditioning, anti-icing and flight-control systems to the emergency equipment and landing gear.
Streszczenie: Starting at the very basic level, and coached in simple yet accurate terms, this book makes easy work of Direct Current and Alternating Current, and leads the student pilot gently into the Theory of Radio Propagation.
Streszczenie: Meteorology aims at imparting to the student pilot a better understanding of all aspects of this science, as it applies to flight operations. A thorough knowledge of meteorology and weather forecasting contributes greatly to flight safety. Such knowledge is essential to a pilot's understanding of how weather-related, in-flight hazards arise and how they should be predicted, avoided and or dealt with.
Streszczenie: Every aspect of classical air navigation is covered in the General Navigation manual from basic pilot navigation to advanced plotting. The many coloured diagrams and maps will help the future professional pilot to master this absorbing subject which many students, in the past, have found to be the greatest hurdle to passing the ATPL theory examinations.
Streszczenie: This book covers the radio navigation facilities available for the navigation of aircraft during departure, en-route and approach, as well as the radar facilities used for the control of aircraft and for in-flight safety. The latest global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) are also covered.
Streszczenie: The JAR-FCL Air Law syllabus covers international Air Law, and is not confined to the law of any one state. Thus, the main reference documents for this book are JAR-OPS1, and ICAO documents and annexes to relevant international conventions and agreements. The book contains a complete bibliography of references.
Streszczenie: This deals with engine-design and engine operation considerations as well as with the recognition of engine malfunctions. The text is easily read and assimilated, and the numerous coloured diagrams help the student in his understanding of the more difficult aspects of the subject.
Streszczenie: Deals with Flight Instruments, Warning and Recording Equipment and Automatic Flight Control Systems. Each of these sections aims to pass on, in a flowing, easily-read style, all of the theory the student pilot will need to interpret the instruments of any type of aircraft on which he may be employed.
Streszczenie: The practical flight planning instruction contained in this book is based upon aircraft such as the Beechcraft Bonanza, the Seneca 3, the Boeing 737-400 and Airbus. Additional aspects of Flight Planning such as the weather factor are also taken into account.
Streszczenie: Operators of aircraft must ensure that they and their employees, both aircrew and groundcrew, comply with all procedures required by national and international law, and that crews have access to all information essential to the safe conduct of flights and associated activities, whether in the air or on the ground. This book deals with ICAO annexes JAR OPS and NAT MNPS documents relevant to this requirement.
Streszczenie: Topics covered range from basic aerodynamic theory to transonic and supersonic flight. This book aims to help professional pilots master the fundamental principles upon which flight depends and which are essential to a full understanding of the flight characteristics of whichever aircraft they may operate. Mastery of this subject is an essential attribute of the safe and proficient pilot.
Streszczenie: Covers all the necessary knowledge and principles to enable the pilot, and future captain, to check that an aircraft is correctly loaded and balanced for safe and efficient operation. Performance covers the theory required to operate an aircraft safely in all phases of flight: take-off, climb,cruise, descent and landing. All typical aircraft types are covered by this manual: single-engine, multi-engine and class A aircraft.
Streszczenie: Human performance & Limitations teaches the student pilot to appreciate the limitations of the human body operating in an aviation environment as well as dealing with all the aspects of the decision making process relevant to the pilot.
