Book - 'The Right Seat - An Intro To Flying For Pilot's Companions...' by Avram Goldstein
Our Price:  $9.95

Product Details:

This book is designed as an introduction to airplanes and flying for those who aren't pilots, or are thinking about becoming one. It serves as a good primer on airplane basics, and would be a great introduction to the fundamentals before taking your first flying lesson. It is also a good book for those who accompany a pilot, who want to increase their understanding of what is going on before and during the flight, and become a helpful partner in making for a better, safer flight. Topics such as how airplanes fly, communication, navigation, and assisting the pilot are covered. For anyone who has ever wondered if they could take over and land the plane if their pilot friend or spouse became incapacitated during flight, that situation is covered as well.
