Aircraft Performance Myths & Methods is a concise and timeless review of essential turbine aircraft performance principles.

Common methods for calculating performance are reviewed against aircraft certification, regulations, TERPS/Pans-Ops criteria and aerodynamic concepts. Confusing and ambiguous Aircraft Flight Manual sections are highlighted using actual examples. Before heading to initial or recurrent training, every pilot should read or re-read this book.

I'm an ex-military pilot presently working as an instructor and FAA DPE for experimental, surplus military fighter jets: I recently purchased the book, Aircraft Performance-Myths and Methods, that you offer from your website. It is exceptionally well written with the exact content turbine pilots need--students and experienced pilots. It's thorough, easy to understand, uses the correct terminology and filled with actual charts and explanations. It's a quality publication, and a bargain. I have been using the CAVU software for FAA forms for years and I have come to expect quality work but the book was a definite bonus. Thanks for the good work. Doug Gillis --Doug Gillis, FAA DPE
