Takeoffs and Landings
The Crucial Maneuvers & Everything in Between
Back in print with a new design, this guide includes instruction on the basics of takeoffs and landings, the realities of flying into and out of an airport, and the functions of the throttle, stick, rudder, and trim. A pilot's pilot, Collins provides a complete and coherent account, from takeoff roll to full stop, of a perfect flight and landing; identifying many common errors pilots make along the way. In addition to extracting from his own lengthy career and personal experience, Collins shares tips and secrets he learned by observing airline pilots, reading military manuals, attending manufacturer's flight training programs, and interviewing some of aviation's most famous thinkers and figures.
