Whether you are a piston pilot preparing for turbine ground school, a transitioning military pilot boning up for that first corporate or airline interview, or an old pro brushing up on turbine aircraft operations, TheTurbine Pilot’s Flight Manual is designed for you. Authors Greg Brown and Mark Holt cover all the basics, clearly explaining the difference between turbine aircraft and their piston engine counterparts.

Addresses:

  • High speed aerodynamics
  • Coordinating multipilot crews
  • Wake turbulence
  • Navigating in high-altitude weather
  • and More

The authors clarify complex topics with a wealth of illustrations and for the first time include in this edition the multimedia Aircraft Systems CD-ROM*. Access narrated color animations that make complex systems easier than ever to understand.

Includes a glossary of airline and corporate aviation terminology, handy turbine pilot rules-of-thumb, and a comprehensive turbine aircraft Spotter’s Guide. Softcover, illustrated, 8.5” x 11”, 272 pages.

*System Requirements for Aircraft Systems CD-ROM:

Windows and Macintosh compatible. CD-ROM drive, sound card and speakers.


What people are saying:

"This text should not only improve the hiring opportunity for pilots, but also add hours of sleep to nights between ground school classes… Where was this manual when I needed it?”—Dan Russell, captain for a commercial airline

“ An extraordinarily well-written book with a vast amount of information to enhance the knowledge of any turbine pilot.”—Bill J. Niederer, B-737 pilot

“The most comprehensive and complete information available to any aspiring commercial pilot. A basic knowledge of systems and terminology is invaluable, not only for initial training but also for your presentation during the interview process. A must read!”—Dick Ionata, retired senior captain for a major airline.

I've flown for 30 years, always in pistons. Recently I went to Flight Safety for a week of training on the Cessna Caravan. My background is in electrical engineering, not engines, so I knew I desperately needed some understanding of turboprop engines before I arrived. Not only did I learn the details of the engines, I learned about how some things on the electrical side are done differently than I had thought.

"Getting Greg's book was a good choice and I recommend it to anyone stepping up to turbine and jet aircraft for the first time. While manipulating the controls of these aircraft will be familiar to anyone who's flown a small plane, the systems, particularly the engines, are significantly different. The beauty of reading his book is that I actually understood the sentence describing the engine in the Caravan's POH: 'Free turbine, two-shaft engine utilizing a compressor section having three axial stages and one centrifugal stage, an annular reverse-flow combustion chamber, a one-stage compressor turbine, a one-stage power turbine, and a single exhaust.'"—Max Trescott, 2008 National CFI of the Year

"...read your book Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual and love the contents and ILLUSTRATIONS in the text. Like they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words."—Student Naval Aviator
