Since I became a ground instructor in 2004, I used the William Kershner series (The Student Pilot's Flight Manual and The Advanced Pilot's Flight Manual) as the basic references for my ground school classes and individual tutorials. Getting my hands on volume 2 of the Pilots Manual series was an eye opener. The text is lavishly illustrated with useful color figures (in stark contrast the the Jeppesen GFD series) that mesh well and usefully with the text. Besides the good use of figures and diagrams, there are reasonably comprehensive end-of-chapter quizzes and other tools for the instructor and student. This text is well written, with a much more appealing layout than the Kershner series. The over all affect of the text gives the material a more appealing, approachable sense. Both technically an aesthetically well done. I highly recommend this as a primary teaching text.

Solid overview of piloting fundamentals

By M. Eckardt - January 15, 2007

This book does a good job of detailing all the technical details of why an airplane has to work the way it does. It tells the reader about the environment that the aircraft operates in, and explains how interactions with that environment affect the flying characteristics of the machine.

Great start

By Mike - February 7, 2013

The book is great. It's just what you'd expect from a ground school textbook. The seller was a little off of the description, though. The book was listed in good condition, The book I recieved was in brand new, perfect condition. Very happy with both. I went on to purchase Microsoft Flight Sim X and a nice joystick controller to put what I've learned in the book into practice. If you're thinking about getting into aviation, I'd recommend this route to get started. The book, flight simulator and controller all came to about $80 shipped and has been well worth it.
