Customer Review

on 6 October 2010
Having read stick and rudder, the most valuable part of the book is "dangers to pilots" and it essentially talks about the percieved dangers, engine failure, weather etc. The reality is the biggest danger which may be induced by any of the perceived dangers is "stalling at slow speed close to the ground" typically going slow and turning at the same time. The wings stall and the aircraft falls, the normal reaction is to pull back on the stick, making it worse not better. The results are normally pretty ugly. Interesting, instructional and sobering reading.

The book is pretty wordy, and parts can be tough reading but challenges lots of the perceived norms and the usual stuff instructors say and "gloss" over. Valuable in their own right. A simple way of working out if, when gliding after engine failure, if you are going to make it over a wire or not.

I can't stress enough, the last chapters are the most vital in the book and I've re-read it several times.

A keeper.
