Climb on board and lets take to the skies. In this book, you can explore how airplanes work. You can also learn about the history of aviation and how air travel has changed the way people live and work.
Previously printed as two separate guidebooks and now combined into one, this manual guides student pilots, flight instructors, and FAA-designated examiners through the final test in acquiring a pilot license. Detailed and up-to-date information is provided regarding knowledge requirements, understanding physiological conditions such as dehydration, spatial disorientation, and hypoxia, and skill requirements for takeoff and landing, bank angles, and airspeed. This reference, which has been updated by the FAA to match their new and revised regulations, includes clear definitions on tolerance of altitudes, airspeeds, headings, and banks that must be maintained to demonstrate each maneuver successfully.
People have taken dangerous risks trying to fly. Some inventors built wings for their arms and flapped them like birds. Some built balloons. Some built machines that glided with the wind. It wasn´t easy, though, and it took a long time and much experimentation until people invented the airplane. Read and find out how people learned to fly.
In ´´Flight Plan,´´ Brian Tracy reveals the real key ingredients that go into accomplishing any long-term, meaningful success. Using the metaphor of an airplane trip from coast to coast, Flight Plan shows that the real secret to success is to first figure out your destination -- where you want to go -- and lock in on it. Second, you must take off--identify precisely what you must do to achieve the goals you have set for yourself and take action. And third, you must persist through the inevitable challenges and setbacks--by making continual course corrections--until you reach your destination. Tracy observes that any airplane, headed for any destination, will be off course 99 percent of the time because of air turbulence. But, by locking in on its destination, taking off, and making continual course corrections, the plane will arrive as scheduled. The same is true of people´s journey through life.
