This boxed set contains three volumes of favorite articles gleaned from years of Barry Schiff's popular monthly column in AOPA Pilot that are arranged by subject. These books are filled with the vast knowledge that Schiff has gained in his more than 26,000 flight hours in 260 types of aircraft and his experiences teaching hundreds of students to be proficient and safe pilots. The first volume of the series covers such topics as slip tips, takeoff techniques, and crosswind landings. Volume Two offers detailed information on dealing with system failures and emergencies--including crash landings, engine fires, and wing icing. Volume three covers such subjects as flying for fun and profit, hazardous airports, and what it's like to fly in a U-2 spy plane.
