Manufacturing 4 Pilots assigned to long-distance routes may experience fatigue and jetlag. Weather conditions may result in turbulence, requiring pilots to change the flying altitude. Flights can be long and flight decks are often sealed, so pilots work in small teams for long periods in close proximity to one another.
Recommended by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University! The book has been specially designed for the needs of professional or military pilots seeking to gain an alternative licence, but newcomers to the industry can use it, too, since it assumes no previous knowledge.
Just as important as the exams is the interview panel, and this is the book for those who want to deal with both - its purpose is to help you become a professional, for which the exams are but a step on the way - doing the bare minimum to pass them makes you ill-prepared to be a pilot, which is not fair to future passengers and painfully obvious to employers and interviewers who certainly expect you to have more than a basic knowledge.
It is a reference book that follows the ATPL H syllabus, so you can use it before, during and after your exams, for the whole of your career! Because it provides an overview of the whole study syllabus, and the usual study materials are not easy Pilot hand book read on the bus or the train, the book is suitable for many types of reader: Those who want to see what they are letting themselves in for.
Those who want to do some pre-study before starting a flying course. Those who cannot understand the materials on the course they are already on. Those who want a reminder of the trouble they went through! People trying to keep current while waiting for a job or an interview to turn up will also find it useful.
In fact, there's a lot in its pages you don't get taught in flying school, and a lot you should be taught, were it not for time constraints - many professional tips and tricks have been included to help make your transition to being a working pilot as easy as possible.
Much of the contents are based on common questions asked during recurrent training, and known exam questions, and include the usual subjects, that is, radio, weather, law, flight planning, etc.
However, ATPL H holders with at least hours PIC or copilot on multi-pilot helicopters type rated for the multi-pilot machine to be used for the skill test, with at least hours on type, are exempt from the TRTO course or any training for the theoretical exams, and the skill test no, you are not exempt the skill test, just any knowledge requirements for it!
With less than hours on type, you are exempt from the theoretical exam training, but will still have to do a type rating course, which may be reduced anyway because of previous experience. This means that you can just book the exams, read this book and take them, with no sign-off from a training school - there is a slot on the application form for exemptions claimed.
As a former Chief Pilot and Training Pilot I have gone through a lot of books over the years and have written quite a few of my own company handbooks and training courses.
This is without a doubt the best book in its class. Beyond the obvious fact that it is fantastic as a study manual, it is simply a pleasure to read. I found myself reading it for enjoyment as opposed to reading it simply to study.
The typeface and layout are outstanding and a pleasure on the eyes. The copy flows nicely and is succinct without being dry; informative without being verbose. I look forward to getting my hands on a few of your other books in the near future.
I look forward to that. If that's the case I hope that you will include a robust section regarding the hydraulic system on the AS I've found over the years that most pilots have a very poor understanding of how the system actually works which may have contributed to the various accidents in the past few years.
Warmest regards," Lee Johnson "Your textbook is what all the textbooks should be like, easy to understand and captivating to read. Trying to hit that easy medium you mentioned sure isn't easy! Pretty damn good if I may say.
Keep up the good work! And after all these years in high tech, I know I can study all the basic text to get the foundation without having someone spoon feed me in class. And I know your book will do that. Very succinct" Dean Phillips "Thanks Phil, the book arrived the day that I sent the email, great book, can't put it down!
From what I have seen of most training manuals, they are written by professional flight instructors who have very little practical experience out in the field.
That is where your book outshines most other books" Richard Theriault "I have been reading the book and I can honestly say that it is by far the best text regarding learning for flying that I have read. Everything else is sooooooooooo dry and seems to make an exciting subject very, very dull.
All wrapped in a good sense of humour. The book certainly approaches the ATPL subjects from a rather different angle than I have ever encountered.
The humour, wit and undoubted flight experience of the writer come through when discussing the various ATPL exam subjects. My impressions of the book are vary favourable.Smart Boy Ride.
