This official FAA handbook has been required reading for more than 30 years. Providing basic knowledge essential for all pilots, from beginning students through to the more advanced certificates, this Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) publication introduces readers to the broad spectrum of knowledge required as they progress through pilot training. Studying this book, pilots gain the required knowledge to earn a certificate and understand aerodynamic theory associated with airplane flight. Written for the pilot preparing for a Remote, Sport, Private, Commercial, or Flight Instructor Pilot Certificate, it is a key reference for all the information necessary to operate an aircraft and to pass the FAA Knowledge Exam and Practical Test (checkride).

This invaluable learning tool begins with a basic introduction to flying and a history of flight, then explores the role of the FAA, criteria for earning the various pilot certificates, how to select a flight school and instructor, and the tests associated with earning a pilot certificate. Topics covered include aeronautical decision making, aircraft construction, principles of flight, aerodynamics of flight, flight controls, aircraft systems, flight instruments, flight manuals and other documents, weight and balance, aircraft performance, weather theory, aviation weather services, airport operations, airspace, navigation, and aeromedical factors. Appendices provide additional support including acronyms, abbreviations, and NOTAM contractions, airport signs and markings, a glossary and index.

  • By Michael A. Bell on October 31, 2017

    I received a terrible blurry, black and white, "on demand" print of the government color PDF. It is NOT the version that is shown in the pictures; It is a low quality knock off done by an "on demand" printer from the LA area.Kinkos would do better.Amazon should be ashamed to sell this.

    Ordered this from Amazon because they had the best price. This book came recommended to me by the FAA doctor that did my Class III, so far I've enjoyed it.

    The text is retarded small. All the pictures are not only black and white, but smeared and impossible to read any details on them. Maps, weather charts, on and on are all impossible to read! I’m returning this. Would have been better just looking at the free pdf version on the computer.

    I bought this book printed by Skyhorse Publishing and it is FULL of printing errors. Someone really messed up, and quality control missed it completely. I am going to re-purchase the book from the government printing office. So much for the "free market"...HA!

    This is the book for learning about the necessities for flying. My particular interest is in piloting drones, and while not all topics are directly relevant, most is. Reading this is a necessity for getting a drone pilot's license.

    Not the original copy. Just a copy and not very good one at that. don't buy save your money. thought I bought the better copy of the ones show for sale but I 2 inches of worthless unreadable paper.

    If your looking for the large full size pilots handbook and airplane handbook this is not it. The large books have full color drawings and large print. This book is small and fully black and white including the drawings. And the type is very small. It’s like reading the FAR’S
