Barry Schiff provides a wealth of valuable information based on his years of experience. Foreword by Ernest Gann.
Developing and maintaining proficiency at the controls is a key concern for pilots at all levels. In The Proficient Pilot, award-winning author and veteran airline captain and flight instructor Barry Schiff provides a wealth of valuable information based on his years of experience, concentrating on procedures and techniques not covered in other aviation books.
Illustrated throughout with helpful charts and line drawings, The Proficient Pilot should be required reading for all who fly.
