This third collection of articles for The Proficient Pilot Series is packed with valuable experience and knowledge to take readers even further on from the wealth of flying know-how in The Proficient Pilot, Volumes 1 and 2. Freely sharing his flying wisdom in a personal manner, Schiff deals with the human element in flight, combining his experiences seamlessly with the technical details and instructions necessary for flying safety and proficiency. Every reader will come away affected by these excellently written, applied lessons which are based solidly on principles and mechanics, yet filtered through Schiff's many thousands of hours of wide-ranging, hands-on experience.
Flying Wisdom, Volume 3 of this riveting series, covers such diverse topics as deep stalls, the black-hole approach, altimetry, the myth of the downwind turn, pilot fatigue, expectations vs. reality, and survival; as well as different types of ILS approaches, crew resource management, and a short course that effectively describes the principles involved in flying jet airplanes—each topic is challenging and draws you in. Topping it all off are flying tips for "fun and profit" and some personal, memorable moments from Schiff's own world of flying.
With a foreword by one of aviation's most beloved airshow pilots, Bob Hoover, Flying Wisdom is a must for every pilot's library, as well as entertaining reading for anyone interested in the fascinating world of flight.
