Fly the Wing has been an indispensable comprehensive textbook on operating transport-category airplanes for more than 45 years. Pilots planning a career in aviation will find this book provides important insights not covered in other books. Written in an easy, conversational style, this useful manual progresses from ground school equipment and procedures to simulators and actual flight. Along the way, the author covers the physical, psychological, and technical preparation pilots need in order to acquire an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate while maintaining the highest standards of performance. Fly the Wing serves as a reference to prepare for the ATP FAA Knowledge Exam.
Although not intended to replace training manuals, this book is by itself a course in advanced aviation. With clear explanations and in depth coverage, it has been described as a “full step beyond the normal training handbook.” Pilots who want additional knowledge in the fields of modern flight deck automation, high-speed aerodynamics, high-altitude flying, speed control, takeoffs, and landings in heavy, high-performance aircraft will find it in this resource. This fourth edition of Fly the Wing includes access to additional online resources, including a flight terms glossary, printable quick reference handbooks, and numerous supporting graphics.
