The essentials of a complete multi-engine training program with study questions, written exam, and syllabus. Covers the aerodynamic fundamentals that govern multi-engine flight.

Learn the fundamentals of flying multi-engine aircraft and aerodynamic laws that govern multi-engine flight under Bob Gardner's experienced and energetic tutoring. "By following Bob Gardner's sage and enlightening advice... the challenging task of becoming a proficient and knowledgeable multi-engine pilot will become easier and more understandable." (from the Foreword by Barry Schiff).

Applicable to both U.S. and international multi-engine training programs, this textbook provides all the information needed to earn a multi-engine rating, covering the aeronautical knowledge and the skill required, as well as checking out in a new twin. Review questions conclude each chapter, and appendices provide a syllabus for an integrated flight/ground training program, a written exam for use when checking out in a new twin, and reprints of applicable FAA advisory circulars and source material for further study on all aspects of multi-engine training.

Bob Gardner's textbooks have been in publication since 1985 and are continually updated and expanded to keep up with FAA regulations and procedures. Mr. Gardner writes in a conversational style that is readable and comprehensive, bringing the reader to a greater understanding of the material. All his books are reinforced by the caliber of personal experience that integrates technique and procedures with mastery. The Complete Pilot Series is designed for use in certified flight schools, for home study, and as a base for student kits. The Complete Multi-Engine Pilot, Third Edition contains a glossary and extensive Appendices, is indexed, and illustrated.

Reader Review:

Comprehensive without being exhaustive, Bob Gardner gives great deference to manufacturers' recommendations while maintaining a common-sense attitude towards standardization (helpful when moving from aircraft to aircraft). Easy to read and understand, "The Complete Multi-Engine Pilot" is great as both a primary text and review material.
