"How-to" guide for what you should be doing in the cockpit during each phase of flight!
Written by an experienced instructor and pilot examiner, Cockpit Procedures provides a solid understanding of the underlying principles for, and detailed descriptions of the checklists and routines used in many flight schools. Readers will find it contains a practical definition of airmanship, and covers what good habits to develop, effective workload management, and even what you should have in your flight bag. Cockpit Procedures is about cockpit actions and thinking, giving readers the rationale behind common procedures that are standard practice in the training environment and in the airlines.
Both airplanes and helicopters are covered, delivering the essential aspects of effective training — technical knowledge, practical application and context learning. Cockpit Procedures targets the pilot just beginning his/her career, yet many of the philosophies and practical techniques taught here are so fundamental and powerful they will carry a pilot right through to retirement. While encouraging structure and discipline regarding procedures, the author does not merely check off lists of dry facts — Cockpit Procedures is also fun to read and Chris Burger keeps his readers focused with lively description and his knack for getting down to essentials in such a way that they stay with you.
Chris R. Burger is an instructor and pilot examiner, flies both airplanes and helicopters, was previously an Air Traffic Controller, and runs a flying school in South Africa. As a flight instructor whose academic background includes aviation psychology expertise, Chris works to promote a culture of safety and teach pilots how to stay out of trouble in the skies — a task well-served by more than 2,500 hours of instructor experience in over 80 different aircraft models.
