Charlie Branch, March 5, 2012 (view all comments by Charlie Branch)
This is one book that should equip every aviator's library. His observation that very little time is spent during training in flight at slow speed (minimum controllable airspeed), while the most critical phases of flight occur in that regime, is so true! My best training experiences are of pattern work, bumping around the circuit just above stall speed in order to accommodate other traffic, while minding the rpm to stay out of prop limitation ranges, which meant intervals of slow descents and slow climbs. Operating limitations...another topic for understanding by novitiates. I agree with the author that more time should be spent training at slower speeds, despite instructors' inclinations to the contrary. My other favorite is Emergency Maneuver Training (trademarked by Rich Stowell), which also reinforces the notion that airplanes fly with airflow over the wings, without regard for the location of the ground. Flight is truly liberating, as long as you remember to leave enough room for (relative)"wind beneath the wings." Until you wish to stall the airplane at a short distance above the ground in order to complete the transition to land, that is.

I read Stick and Rudder in the early sixties when I was first learnig to fly, and the understanding gained served me well in both airplane and glider flying. It is the classic.

"Synopsis" by , This classic offers an analysis of the art of flying, along with explanations of what a pilot actually does.
"Synopsis" by , In the early 1940's, Wolfgang Langewiesche wrote a series of articles in Air Facts analyzing the various aspects of piloting techniques. Based on these articles, Langewiesche's classic work on the art of flying was published in 1944. This book explains precisely what pilots do when they fly, just how they do it, and why. These basics are largely unchanging. The book applies to large airplanes and small, old airplanes and new, and is of interest not only to the learner but also to the accomplished pilot and instructor. Today, several excellent manuals offer the pilot accurate and valuable technical information. But Stick and Rudder remains the leading think-book on the art of flying.
