Every chapter of Fly the Engine brims with hands-on advice, told with wit and style for any pilot of any skill level.
From the Author: Being a skilled pilot means more than knowing how to operate stick and rudder: It means knowing how to operate the throttle, mixture, prop, boost pump, primer, wastegate, alternate air, carb heat, cowls flap, and other power controls in a way that maximizes safety, performance, and engine life. This book shows you how. Filled with real world examples culled from 40 years of flying. Confused by conflicting advice about shock cooling and mixture management? You won't be after reading chapter 7. Thinking about transitioning to a turbocharged aircraft? Chapter 8 will get you up the learning curve quickly. Want to be able to troubleshoot problems in flight? Heed the lessons of chapter 9. Every chapter of Fly The Engine brims with practical hands-on advice and real world examples told with the wit and style by one of aviation's most respected authors. Hailed as a modern day classic when it first appeared in 1993, Fly The Engine, now in its 2nd edition is a treasure trove of engine wisdom - essential reading for any pilot of any skill level.
