Revised to include up-to-date cockpit and airport procedures and recent upgrades in communications and navigation equipment, this guide provides real-life insight into the day-to-day flight activities of turbine flying. Going beyond regulations and performance, this reference contains aeronautical wisdom gained from more than 50 years of flying. Takeoff speeds, runway contamination, high-altitude flight, icy conditions, rapid decompression, and in-flight fires are some of the topics covered, providing information for both aspiring and experienced pilots."--Publisher description."@en ;
