    Flying High Performance Singles & Twins
    Description

    Hardcover

    by John C. Eckalbar

    A serious pilot cannot know too much about the atmosphere; about the engine and propeller; about the essential aerodynamics of performance, stability and control; about multi-engine flying in both theory and practice; about icing and about advanced systems like radar, turbochargers, pressurization, autopilots and flight directors. Like most pilots, your serious study probably ended when you got your instrument rating. When you first began to study flying, you learned about simple airplanes with normally aspirated engines, fixed-pitch propellers, etc. Upgrade your knowledge base to match the equipment and the advanced type of flying you are doing now.
