Title Author Description
***** Stick and Rudder Langwiesche, Wolfgang Although written in the 1930s, this excellent book explaining the art of flying is as relevant today as it was then – and in many ways no less controversial, as it demolishes some of the long held myths about flying technique that still persist today. Explaining in simple terms what happens when a pilot flies, and how and why it happens, this is a book found on the bookshelves of all pilots ‘in the know’

The first and best exact analysis of the art of flying. Shows exactly what the pilot does when he flies, just how he does it and why

* IFR: A Structured Approach Eckalbar, John The latest book from John Eckalbar (author of Flying the Beech Bonanza and Flying High Performance Singles and Twins) explores the real world of IFR flying by tracing an imaginary training flight from start to finish. Along the way, the author stops the trip to expand on important issues like flying the ILS, when to shoot a circling approach and using approach control to your advantage. Includes a must-read section on the new GPS/WAAS approaches and how to fly them. Throughout, Eckalbar describes how to develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for yourself that will improve your flying. Approx. 250 pages, hardcover.
*** Making Perfect Landings in Light Airplanes Fowler This thorough guide is intended to make the typical private pilot an expert in one phase of flight, the landing. Detailed but easy-to-understand information gives pilots the knowledge they need to go beyond rote reactions in order to develop piloting excellence. Black and white photographs, approx. 135 pages, paperback.

** Flying Practical Handbook Jean Zilio

 

The consecration for an author is to see his name becoming more famous than his books. When his name is familiar to everybody and merely common, he reaches a kind of crowned achievement. It is the case for Jean Zilio. He is an instructor pilot with a large flying experience and a real talent to transmit it while teaching all his pupils, professional pilots or only private ones.

The different documents, he created for his lessons, are gathered in this Flying Practicle Handbook reaching its eighth edition. Several generations of pilots using it during their training had participated to its real success.

Why such an interest for this Zilio ? Because this handbook is less theoretical than the other official ones, and gives many practical advices for correct flying. Thematic cards explain clearly the basic control manoeuvres and the best methods to find the safest air trajectories. They are clearly illustrated with drawings and graphics of the author, a good way to show how to get progressively a full pilot’s skill and ability.Obviously, this handbook is useful for the beginners and student pilots but offers also good information and refreshments to more trained, and it is very easy to use from 0 to 25 000 flying hours logged

*** De magie van het vliegen / 

The miracle of flight

Dalton, Stephen  Rijk met foto's en tekeningen geillustreerd boek over het vliegen door dier en mens. Na een uitgebreide uitleg over de natuurkundige aspecten van het verschijnsel vliegen in de lucht, gaat de auteur in op de vraag hoe dieren en vervolgens mensen hun vermogen ontwikkelden om te vliegen. Aan het slot een beschrijving van hoe de mens tenslotte ook de atmosfeer weet te verlaten en zich leert bewegen in de ruimte.
