Aircraft Performance Theory and Practice for Pilots by Peter J. Swatton

Book Description

Aircraft Performance Theory and Practice for Pilots, 2nd Edition addresses both European aircraft performance requirements (CS-23 and CS-25) and the Joint Aviation Regulations Operations rules (JAR-OPS 1) and so provides comprehensive and up to date coverage of the complex conditions within which all European public transport aeroplanes must operate today. The subject of aircraft performance is an important part of the JAA Flight Crew Licensing syllabus for the examinations for commercial and airline transport licences, and this book provides a clear and authoritative text on a difficult topic. It will also be of interest to commercial pilots for their annual standardization test and to flight planners, operations staff and airport operators.
