Stick and Rudder: An Explanation of the Art of Flying

WHAT 'S IN STICK AND RUDDER: The invisible trick of all heavier-than-air flight: the Angle of Attack. Exactly what it is, and why it can not be seen. Exactly how lift is made, as well as just what the pilot pertains to it.Why aircrafts delay How do you know you're about to stall?The touchdown technique. Exactly how the pilot's eye features in evaluating the approach.The aesthetic hints by which an experienced pilot subconsciously courts: exactly how you can promptly learn how to utilize them."The Spot that does not move." This is the initial statement of this phenomenon. A foolproof technique of making a landing technique throughout pole lines and trees.The lift and the throttle. One controls the rate, the various other controls climb and also descent. Which is which?The paradox of the move. By aiming the nose down much less outstanding, you come down extra outstanding. By aiming the nose down a lot more steeply, you can move further.What's the rudder for? The tail does NOT transform the aircraft the way a boat's rudder transforms the watercraft. After that exactly what does it do?How a turn is flown. The duty of ailerons, tail, and lift in making a turn.The touchdown– how it's made. The aesthetic ideas that inform you where the ground is.The "tail-dragger" landing equipment as well as just what's difficult regarding it. This is possibly the only analysis of tail-draggers currently readily available to those that want to fly one.The tricycle touchdown equipment and also just what's so good concerning it. A strong campaigning for of the tricycle equipment written each time when nearly all civil planes were taildraggers.Why the plane doesn't really feel the wind. Why the airplane typically flies a little sidewise.Plus: a chapter on Air Accidents by Leighton Collins, founder and editor of AIR FACTS. His evaluations of aviation's security troubles have actually deeply affected pilots and also aerial designers and also have added to the benign attributes of today's aircraft.

Stick as well as Rudder is the very first precise analysis of the art of flying ever before tried. It has actually been continously in print for thirty-three years. It reveals exactly just what the pilot does when he flies, simply exactly how he does it, as well as why.

Stalling for Safety - FAA video Private/Instrument/Commercial Pilot training 1976

This is an FAA video and is the work product of the US Government and, as such, carries no copyright and is free for use. This video covers pilot training in stalls and slow flight. I believe it is from 1974.
I have a lot of FAA videos to upload, I estimate around 30, and will be converting them and uploading over the next few weeks. Please subscribe to stay informed of new uploads.
Thank you
