Product Description:

From pre-takeoff checklists, to weather, to air traffic control, this updated guide takes new pilots through a flight from the eye of an instructor.

Fully revised to cover new FAA policies on radio procedures, taxiing, registration, and more, Beyond the Checkride, Second Edition takes new pilots, step by step, through a flight from the perspective of a flight examiner. The focus is on cementing the basics, equipment control, and human factors, including emotions like impulsivity and machismo.

Using anecdotes and the experiences of hundreds of other pilots, this book outlines a common-sense approach to flight safety for students and pilots-in-training. You’ll gain invaluable flight wisdom that usually comes only with time.

  • Includes updates on new FAA policies and procedures
  • Covers areas often underemphasized in training such as maneuvering speed, night flying, aircraft control, propeller safety, and more
  • Bridges the gap between flight training and in-flight experience
  • Written in an anecdotal style so you can learn from the experience of others
