Overview

Complete solutions for: pitch vs power dilemma, US Air Force vs FAA method conflicts, precision flight transitions, and accurate approach tracking. Included Flight Demonstration Simulator software shows the book's procedures and examples in action. The concept behind Advanced Airmanship came early in Professor Les Kumpula's 30 year career at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. A former chief pilot for a major corporation told Prof. Kumpula that he only hired copilots who had a minimum of 500 hours of flight time, because by then their basic flying motor skills were mostly developed. This eye-opener, coupled with the observation that recent flying experience lessened in importance if the pilot was mentally involved in flying knowledge, was the genesis of the "substitution of knowledge for experience concept" in the development of flying skill. Historically, pilot proficiency beyond basic motor skills was gleaned from realizations during many years of experience from other crew members and instructors. Prof. Kumpula believes what took years to learn should be able to be taught at the beginning if common tasks were analyzed in detail. Advanced Airmanship Precision Flying details the results of the many years Professor Kumpula spent developing flight technique analysis.
