How To Fly A Plane


Having an idea about How To Fly A Plane has got to be a handy thing, which is why my eyes were drawn to the giveaway title on the front of this new book. It's not a manual, more an introduction to the basics of taking off, flying and landing in easy to understand language for novices like me. Along with tons of pretty pictures, it also describes a from-the-cockpit view of how to handle eight different types of aircraft from a glider, to a Russian Sukhoi stuntplane and even a Learjet, should you ever find yourself in one without a pilot, or indeed its wealthy owner.

Published in the U.K. by Thames & Hudson for £15, it is available for purchase here.
