The legacy of legendary flight instructor William K. Kershner lives on in the 10th edition of his venerable classic, “The Student Pilot’s Flight Manual,” now edited by his son William C. Kershner.
This first volume in “The Flight Manuals Series” is a ground school textbook, maneuvers manual, and syllabus all rolled into one, providing a step-by-step course for student pilots working towards a Private or Sport Pilot certificate. The manual is a gathering of material used in preflight and postflight briefings and in-flight instruction provided by one of the greatest flight instructors of our time, according to ASA officials, who note the book is not intended to merely help readers “get past” the FAA Knowledge Exam and checkride — it also has the essential information for use in the day-to-day process of flying airplanes.
Bill Kershner was FAA/General Aviation Flight Instructor of the Year in 1992, and named Elder Statesman of Aviation in 1997. He was inducted into the Flight Instructor Hall of Fame in 1998. His son was soloed by his father, and holds Flight Instructor and Airline Transport Pilot certificates. He has flown 22 types of airplanes in his over 10,000 hours of flight time, ranging from Cessna 150s to Boeing 777s.
