Traditionally known as the "red maneuvers book," this handbook is one of a series that has been the standard of the industry for more than 40 years, and complies with current practical test standards and regulations. This Second Edition of ASA's Low-Wing version of the Visualized Flight Maneuvers series is an excellent learning and teaching aid for instructors and students. It covers all maneuvers for Private, Commercial, and Flight Instructor Certificates — including the new maneuvers from the 2002 Practical Test Standards: steep spirals, and the 180-degree power-off approach. Each maneuver is depicted according to type of aircraft in which the lesson will take place; each states the objective of the task and lists the practical test standards required. This handbook is fully illustrated with fold-out pages showing each maneuver complete on one wide-page spread (11-1/2" x 8"), so the reader absorbs all the visual and textual information at once.
This maneuvers guide is designed to be compact and easy to carry, and is spiral-bound for ease of use. The illustrated fold-out pages show each maneuver step-by-step, helping pilots understand what they should be looking for outside the cockpit window. Pilots will find full descriptions of stalls, slips, and ground reference maneuvers, as well as short, soft, and crosswind takeoffs and landings. Also included are suggested checklists for everything from preflight to takeoffs and landings, performance, and checkrides, and an easy-to-use index so pilots can quickly refer to any desired task.
