A Pilot's Guide to Aircraft and Their Systems
The more you know about your aircraft systems, the better you fly. Pilots must understand what each handle or knob controls and what he or she can expect from each system.

Written in an easy-to-grasp style, covering single-engine pistons to multi-engine turbines, including: principles of flight; control surfaces and their operation; aircraft structures and materials; systems — hydraulic, electrical, fuel, ice protection and instrument; turbine and piston engine theory and operations; propeller forces, construction and controls.
