Get the Most from Flying Your Cessna 210
This all-new primer on owning and flying the Cessna 210 Centurion is dedicated to helping all who own or want to fly a Cessna 210 master the art of piloting this complex airplane. Author Chuck McGill covers the wide gamut of 210 models, accessories, and modifications, offering his wisdom on optimum performance and safe operations based on his thousands of hours of flying and teaching in the airplane. Flying the Cessna 210 contains 114 full-color photographs and illustrations in 196 pages, as well as abundant facts, tips, and techniques to help anyone command the Centurion for the best performance and safety.
So often, people purchase complex go-fast airplanes but don’t have a good understanding of the airplane’s systems and flight characteristics. McGill has written this book to extend pilots’ knowledge far beyond a POH and to help them get optimum performance, safety, and longevity from their airplanes.
While offering some background on the C210, T210, and P210, the book is much less about history and mechanics, focusing instead on systems and operations. Its 11 chapters and extensive Appendix offer insight into common operational issues during preflight, taxi, takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, and landing operations unique to each model of the 210. Additionally, it goes a long way to help pilots of airplanes with STC’d mods, accessories, and new avionics understand how those enhancements can be best used to make the most of safe flight operations. The book also highlights the versatility and utility of this multitalented aircraft.

"Whether you’re a high time Cessna 210 pilot or are just thinking about buying a 210, you’ll want to get a copy of Chuck McGill’s Flying the Cessna 210. My first aircraft was a 1980 Turbo 210N and I wish I had his book when I was learning to fly my plane. I learned a number of things from Chuck’s book that I never knew about my plane. Chuck’s book differs from other 210 publications in that he gives details on specific techniques for flying these aircraft safely, while getting the most performance from the planes. For complex airplanes like the 210, I always recommended that pilots seek out a flight instructor who specializes in their aircraft type. For the 210, Chuck is that instructor. If you can’t fly with him, buy Flying the Cessna 210." Max Trescott, Author, 2008 National Flight Instructor of the Year
"The book provides a wealth of information about the 210. It gives details of the differences between the different models of 210 and their expected performance. For example, the difference in performance between the normally aspirated, the turbo and the turbo-pressurized models in different configurations. This is ideal for someone considering the pros and cons of the 210, T210 and P210 models for their specific operational requirements... I was also impressed the way Chuck explains some of the specific characteristics of the 210 in his book. He explains systems and procedures in easy-to-understand English, that is neither too technical nor too ‘dumbed down’... I would recommend Flying the Cessna 210: The secrets unlocked by Chuck McGill to all 210 pilots from the novice to the most experienced - because everyone will get something out of this book." Garth Bartlett President Cessna Pilots Association of Australia.
