Picking up where initial pilot training leaves off, this collection of stories originally published in Plane & Pilot magazine offers practical tips and techniques for pilots to use in daily flight operations and improve their skills. Taken from the author's own logbook, the stories reflect all phases of flight: pre-flight, departure, en route, and arrival. While encouraging pilots to take to the sky, sound advice and suggested piloting methods are provided in training examples on such diverse topics as night flying, handling in-flight emergencies, evaluating real-life takeoff performance, and getting stuck above or below a cloud deck.
