In his new foreword to The Proficient Pilot, Volume 2, Space Shuttle Crewmember Jay Apt summarizes Barry Schiff's contribution to aviation in this book with these words:
"He writes with a practical eye for details that matter. Throughout the book, he makes aviation theory understandable and always translates it into sensible advice that a pilot can readily use...I'll read this one every year as part of my personal attempt to remain proficient...this book will not only increase your proficiency, it will greatly increase your love of flying."
Schiff disposes of popular misconceptions about cruise control, flying in turbulence, coping with wind shear, and obtaining meaninful performance data. Soft Cover, illustrated, indexed.
