ASA Making Perfect Takeoffs and Landings in Light Airplanes


This is a newly combined edition of Ron Fowler's Making Perfect Takeoffs and Making Perfect Landings which were previously published separately.

Many pilots resign themselves to imperfect takeoffs and landings merely because they don't realise that even the pros must work at each of these critical phases of flight. "Making Perfect Takeoffs and Landings in Light Airplanes" shows pilots how to develop total awareness for the situation, the aeroplane, and the self — and to convert that awareness into perfect takeoffs and landings. The detailed yet easy-to-follow steps given here ensure pilots have the knowledge they need to go beyond rote-learned reactions and develop excellent flying skills. The author’s easy, conversational approach to teaching speaks to all pilots who thrive on the personal challenge of striving for excellence.

Each chapter defines a specific takeoff or landing situation and the set of characteristics unique to it. Fowler presents the methods—and the logic behind the methods—that allow the pilot to master techniques key to normal takeoffs and landings, crosswind procedures, short- and soft-field operations, night procedures, critical landing situations, slips, tailwheel operations, and more. The tips and techniques shared here are useful to the typical rated private pilot, yet the book addresses the needs of the solo student pilot, to the thousand-hour pilot and the flight instructor as well.
