Stick and rudder : an explanation of the art of flying by Wolfgang Langewiesche( Book )

21 editions published between 1944 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1940's, Wolfgang Langewiesche wrote a series of articles in Air Facts analyzing the various aspects of piloting techniques. Based on these articles, Langewiesche's classic work on the art of flying was published in 1944. This book explains precisely what pilots do when they fly, just how they do it, and why. These basics are largely unchanging. The book applies to large airplanes and small, old airplanes and new, and is of interest not only to the learner but also to the accomplished pilot and instructor. Today, several excellent manuals offer the pilot accurate and valuable technical information. But Stick and Rudder remains the leading think-book on the art of flying

America from the air : an aviator's story by Wolfgang Langewiesche( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1930s, Wolfgang Langewiesche, a German-born graduate student at the University of Chicago, learned to fly. He took to the air with the same passion Americans had taken to the road a decade earlier, writing a series of acclaimed books that described the heady excitement of flight in this era and the stunning views of his adopted country from an entirely new vantage point - the sky. America from the Air brings selections from two of these classic accounts - I'll Take the High Road, first published in 1939, and A Flier's World, his 1951 memoir - to provide a distinctive look at the American landscape before the construction of multilane expressways, suburban tract housing, and strip malls. With a photographer's eye and a rare talent for conveying the physical sensation of flying, Langewiesche describes small farms, deserted seashores, busy railway lines, and cities in which skyscrapers were still engineering marvels, evoking an irrecoverable part of America's past."--Jacket
