A training and reference guidebook for the Cessna 172. A companion to the pilot's operating handbook, these manuals expand on the information provided and explain in depth the technical information and operating procedures while providing tips to improve airmanship. Great as support to structured practical flight training on the aircraft or as a reference manual for pilots who already fly the aircraft. Each is compiled from manufacturer's maintenance manuals, a range of Cessna 172 Pilot Operating Handbooks, and the author's personal experience as flight instructors and charter pilots. The explanations are straight forward and easy to understand with photographs, diagrams, and schematics. The flight operations section includes standard practices for normal, abnormal and emergency flight operations, including performance planning, and sample calculations.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Danielle Bruckert and Oleg Roud are professional pilots, instructors and examiners on the Cessna series of aircraft they write about. They now both fly for airlines, however both remain active in general aviation, providing instruction and check flights on light aircraft. Oleg began flying fighter and transport jets in the Former Soviet military, immigrating to Southern Africa after the collapse, to fly charter operations mainly on the Cessna aircraft, and airline operations on the Beech 1900 and Embraer 135. Danielle began flight training in New Zealand, and left for africa to gain experience in charter operations on Cessna singles and twins, and later joined the national airline in Namibia, flying the Beech 1900 and Boeing 737. Their motivation to write the books was to improve training and thus operating standards in the general aviation sector (the non-airline civil aviation sector), especially for light aircraft in private and charter operations. Training has been identified by the FAA, and other civil aviation authorities, as a major cause of light aircraft accidents, Oleg and Danielle hope the Cessna Training Manual series will help to improve training standards by improving the information available for pilots. Oleg and Danielle based the Cessna Training Manuals format on the progression of a typical training syllabus and information normally provided for training on larger aircraft, where there is stricter control over standards.
