Synopses & Reviews
This is a reincarnation of the Air Band Radio Handbook, an essential reference book first published over 20 years ago and a stronger seller throughout its eight editions. The new title reflects not just the extent of overhaul and updating that has occurred for this new version, but also the fact that a larger proportion of the audience these days comprises air traffic controllers themselves (both trainees and fully qualified) as well as the traditional air band listening enthusiast. The expert author's accessible and comprehensive text explains the intricacies of air traffic control and its jargon, enabling the reader to locate and interpret what is actually going on in the airways overhead.
