The most "user friendly" book on Piloting ever written.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Stick and Rudder: An Explanation of the Art of Flying: (Hardcover)
One would think that any book on piloting written so long ago, just couldn't be useful. This is far from the case. What Mr. Langewiesche has done is amazing. He has brought what could have been a complex explaination on the art of flight to the level of the typical non-pilot.
He has made it a great read, rather than a dry and somewhat boreing dissertation on the dynamics of flight. I personally have left the ranks of active pilots some years ago, yet, I occasionally crack the pages and in so doing, I find some of my many memorys of flight, brought back to vivid life. I highly recommend this book for entry as well as veteran pilots.
