Pilotís transitioning to the airlines seldom realize they will have to put their instrument flying skills to work using modern cockpit technology. This book gives you a head start on learning this exciting new aspect of airline flying.

Unlike conventional flight training manuals, Pilots Guide to The Modern Airline Cockpit places you in the captainís seat and takes you step-by-step through a challenging line flight. After programming your flight route using the flight management computer, learn how to use the airplaneís autoflight system to help automatically guide you along the route you have built.

Deals with the following realistic enroute scenarios:

  • Vectors
  • Holds
  • Diversions
  • Intercepts
  • Traffic
  • Surrounding terrain
  • And many others

Along the way, learn how cockpit automation can potentially help or hinder while you and your crewmate work as a team to decide the best way to fly the airplane.
