What's in Stick and Rudder:

  • The invisible secret of all heavier-than-air flight- The Angle of Attack. What it is, and why it can't be seen. How lift is made, and what the pilot has to do with it.
  • Why airplanes stall
  • How do you know you are about o stall
  • The landing approach. How the pilot's eye functions in judging the approach. The visual clues by which an experienced pilot judges: how you can quickly learn to use them.
  • "The Spot that does not move" This is the first statement of this phenomenon. A foolproof method of making a landing approach across pole lines and trees.
  • The elevator and the throttle. One controls the speed, the other controls climb and descent. Which is which?
  • The paradox of the glide. By pointing the nose down less steeply, you descend more steeply. By pointing the nose down more steeply , you can glide farther.
  • What is the rudder for?
  • How a turn is flown. The role of the ailerons, rudder and elevator in making a turn.

Stick and rudder contains all this and much much more.............
