Excellent sections on landing and takeoff. Davies makes full use of his background as Chief Test Pilot of what was then the UK Airworthiness Authority. He puts all the topics into the context of proper engineering and aviation fact, shows how the rules evolved from there, and generally gives you complete confidence that you've mastered the full range of the subject. PPRUNE Tech Log has always got one or two side references to this book.
Chase it up hard - it's still around - and keep it at the front of the bookshelf. My copy sits between 737-700 manuals and Swanston's Performance.
PS - Don't confuse this with Flying the Big Jets by Stanley Stewart; a worthy book in its' own right, but very different!
But still a must-buy for anyone with interest in the subject. It is surprisingly pricey.
P.S. Since I haven't actually read it, I shouldn't award any stars, but by the sound of things it is worth a five.
