Fly toward pilot certification with these real-world scenario exercises Although PC-based flight simulations have been available for 30 years, many pilots, instructors, and flight schools don't understand how best to use these tools in real-world flight training and pilot proficiency programs. This invaluable reference bridges the gap between simulation tools and real-world situations by presenting hands-on, scenario-based exercises and training tips for the private pilot certificate and instrument rating. As the first of its kind based on FAA-Industry Training Standards (FITS), this book steers its focus on a scenario-based curriculum that emphasizes real-world situations. Experienced pilot and author Bruce Williams ultimately aims to engage the pilot, reinforce the "realistic" selling point of PC-based flight simulations, while also complementing the FAA-approved FITS syllabi. Serves as essential reading for pilots who want to make effective use of simulation in their training while expanding their skill level and enjoyment of flying Covers private pilot real-world scenarios and instrument rating scenarios Includes a guide to recommended websites and other resources Features helpful charts as well as a glossary You'll take off towards pilot certification with this invaluable book by your side.

This operational handbook introduces the basic skills necessary for piloting seaplanes, skiplanes, and helicopters equipped with floats or skis. It is primarily intended to assist pilots who already hold private or commercial certificates and who are learning to fly these aircraft types. It is also beneficial to rated seaplane pilots who wish to improve their proficiency, pilots preparing for flights using ski-equipped aircraft, and flight instructors engaged in the instruction of both students and transitioning pilots. The book introduces the future seaplane or skiplane pilot to the realm of water operations and cold weather operations, and provides information on the performance of procedures required for the addition of a sea class rating in airplanes. Previously published in the Airplane Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-3), this information has since been removed from that text (with the introduction of the FAA-H-8083-3A). The Seaplane, Skiplane, and Float/Ski Equipped Helicopter Operations Handbook features full-color illustrations and photographs throughout, as well as straightforward discussions and explanations for: --Rules, regulations and aids for navigation --Principles of seaplanes --Water characteristics and seaplane base operations --Seaplane operations (preflight, takeoffs, landings) --Performance --Skiplane operations --Emergency open sea operations --Float and ski equipped helicopters
