A rating for multi-engine airplanes is a must for anyone wanting to be a professional pilot, and is a goal of many private pilots. But flying a twin is more than just adding another engine. The aerodynamics are different, the systems are different, the emergency procedures are different. Paul Craig's Multi-Engine Flying takes pilots through these differences and guides them to a safer level of flight. Any pilot moving up to a multi-engine rating must know the importance of torque, accelerated slipstream, side-slip, minimum control speed, and other matters particular to multi-engine aircraft. This volume expands on these and many other vital topics, and it can be used as a reference for pilots who fly multi-engine aircraft.

The most complete, timely guide to multiengine flying Multiengine maneuvers, systems, and aerodynamics are profoundly different from those in single-engine airplanes and, contrary to what most single-engine pilots believe, there are situations when a multiengine plane can be more-not less-dangerous than flight in a single. First covering the fundamentals of multiengine flight, this book includes multiengine aerodynamics, takeoff and landings, and engine-out procedures. It also includes the current FAA Multiengine rating and Airline Transport Pilot Practical Test Standards to help prepare you for the oral and flight exams. The new, updated Second Edition provides vital information on: Sample oral test questions; Flight training syllabus and guides; High-altitude operations-with information now required for high-altitude endorsement, such as pressurization systems, rapid decompression, oxygen requirements, and human physiological training; "Glass Cockpit" systems; Cockpit Resource Management (CRM) techniques and applications for multiengine aircraft in both crew and single-pilot operations; FAA Minimum Equipment Lists (MELs) and regulations pertaining to flight with inoperative equipment; Computer-based training, flight training devices, and flight simulator training; Computer-based training, flight training devices, and flight simulator training; Upgrading from piston-powered aircraft to turbines; Career-climbing information on flight time building, quality time building, and current hiring practices for airlines and corporations. The new Second Edition of Multiengine Flying not only helps you reach your goal of a multiengine rating-it prepares you for making sound, in-flight decisions that prevent problems and even accidents.
