Back in print for the first time in over a decade! Fully revised and updated! The ultimate book on aircraft engine operation, Fly the Engine takes you through all phases of engine operation, showing you how to spot engine discrepancies on preflight; how to start a hot, cold, or flooded engine; how to troubleshoot a rough runup; when (and when not) to lean the engine for all phases of flight; how to recognize valve sticking; and much more. Every chapter of Fly the Engine brims with hands-on advice, told with wit and style by one of aviation's most respected authors. Hailed as a modern-day classic when it first appeared in 1993, Fly the Engine is a goldmine of engine wisdom: essential reading for any pilot, of any skill level.
