The second edition of “The Pilot’s Guide to the Airline Cockpit” has been released.
This book by Stephen Casner introduces pilots to the fundamentals of today’s airline cockpit before they enter training at an airline company. Previously titled The Pilot’s Guide to the Modern Airline Cockpit, the book bridges the gap between the skills pilots learn during general aviation training, and the skills they will be expected to have when they begin their airline flying career, according to officials.
Pilots will learn how to use the flight management system and autopilot to plan and follow an assigned route, as well as how to deal with realistic enroute scenarios such as vectors, intercepts, holds, diversions, late descents, and many others, officials add.
Stephen M. Casner is a research scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Intelligent Systems, an ATP certificate with type ratings in the Boeing 737, Airbus 320, and Cessna Citation, and is a Gold Seal Certified Flight Instructor with instrument and multi-engine ratings.
Price: $24.95; $19.95 for the ebook.
