9781560276234: The Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual

Covering all the essentials of turbine aircraft, this guide will prepare readers for a turbine aircraft interview, commuter ground school, or a new jet job. The Turbine Pilot"s Flight Manual provides the only complete, understandable "how things work" explanation of turbine aircraft. It is intended for pilots graduating to more sophisticated aircraft and pilots wanting to review or learn the basics of turbine engine flight. Highly illustrated and clearly written, this manual is understandable to all pilots. It offers a complete description of turbine aircraft engines and systems, covering turboprops and jets; additional chapters on important related topics such as high-speed aerodynamics, multipilot crew coordination, wake turbulence, and high-altitude weather; coverage of "pure jet" operations, large aircraft systems, and other data needed by experienced pilots for review prior to recurrent, upgrade, or transition training; and explanations, intended for ex-military "jet jockeys," of civilian flight operations, aircraft, and systems as well as turboprop and multipilot operations and transition training.

From the Back Cover:

Whether you’re 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, The Turbine Pilot’s Flight Manual is designed for you. With precision and a sense of humor, authors Greg Brown and Mark Holt cover all the basics, clearly explaining the differences between turbine aircraft and their piston engine counterparts.

In addition to comprehensive descriptions of turbine aircraft engines and all major systems, this manual addresses high-speed aerodynamics, coordinating multipilot crews, wake turbulence, and navigating in high-altitude weather. You’ll be introduced to state-of-the-art cockpit instrumentation including the flight management system (FMS) and the head-up guidance system (HGS or HUD) and learn the operating principles of hazard avoidance systems including weather radar, lighting detectors, and the ground proximity warning system (GPWS), plus much, much 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 (MAC and PC). Now, while reading the book, you can access narrated color to understand. Also included are glossary of airline and corporate aviation terminology, handy turbine pilot rules of thumb, and a comprehensive turbine aircraft Spotter’s Guide.
