Sep 27, Jeff rated it really liked it. Plourde Is it really necessary to have a whopping two hundred and sixty eight pages dedicated solely to take offs and landings in conventional landing gear aircraft? YES, is the unequivocal answer! In fact, although it would have probably exceeded the authors first hand operating knowledge, it would have been nice to have additional chapters on high performance aircraft, as in WWII fighters, and also multi engine operation.

Aug 10, AJ rated it it was amazing Shelves: aviation , non-fiction , This book was written in the 90s, and looks 30 years old, but the content is still very relevant and useful.
