The Advanced Pilot's Flight Manual has long been a standard reference for veteran pilots preparing for the commercial written and flight tests. Explanations bridge the gap between theory and practical application, covering the fundamentals of airplane Lift, Weight, Drag, and Thrust, as well as the effects of variable factors such as altitude and temperature on the operation of the aircraft. In this completely updated sixth edition, Kershner has added the 651 multiple-choice questions on airplanes from the FAA Commercial Pilot Written Test Book, with answers and explanations.
DGCA has come out with a new syllabus. Several new topics have been added which were never required in the past. This posed a big challenge for anyone to consolidate all topics into one book. In fact that the syllabus includes 18 ICAO Annexes, Doc 4444, Doc 8168, AIP India, several DGCA'S CARs, Aircraft Act and Rules, material on Human aspects, radiotelephony and several other ICAO, National and International documents. The material runs into thousands of pages. At one stage I had thought it to be an impossible task. On persistent inspiration from several aviators, I did a lot of juggling to put all the pieces together. there was also request from readers to accommodate sample questions in the book. I have managed to do so. I have spent several sleepless nights to come out with this book. I hope it proves to be worth the trouble and benefits all aviation enthusiasts.
