Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How to Fly a Plane is the most complete guide to flying a plane available. It’s perfect for the novice pilot or curious adventurer, and a great gift for the aviation obsessed. Nick Barnard has created the ultimate companion for armchair flyers and focused students alike. Beautifully designed with more than 200 color photographs and illustrations, and edited with a sharp sense of how to relate the complex activity of flying in simple, easy-to-understand terms, this is the must-have book for anyone who has ever dreamed of getting airborne.

Learn to operate everything from a glider to an Airbus super-jumbo jet. Barnard covers the basics of aerodynamics from the sensation you’ll experience in the air and a step-by-step training flight to contact information for training schools and specifics regarding different types of aircraft. There are tips for your first flight and advice regarding the best plane for your needs.

Divided into three sections, Nick Barnard covers basics and puts you in the cockpit so you can feel what it’s like to get up in the air for the very first time. How to Fly a Plane is an excellent resource for all would-be and novice pilots, aircraft enthusiasts, travelers, and fact-fanciers of every stamp.
