Flying Beyond, New Second edition! This commercial ground school textbook builds soundly and thoroughly on the structure and content of its 1st Edition. Expanded with the addition of 16 pages, it introduces readers like never before to the higher standards required of pilots seeking to step up from their Private Pilot Licence, and sets them on the road to careers as professional aviators. Authored by vastly knowledgeable Canadian ground school instructor, Chris Hobbs, Flying Beyond provides complete and informative content that not only meets the requirements of CPL standards, it far exceeds them. Flying Beyond, 2nd Edition takes another step forward in the subject of commercial flying, ensuring that CPL students taught in Canada will have the foundation as the best prepared, the most informed, and the highest educated professional aviators in the world. The topics in Flying Beyond are presented in the order given in Transport Canada’s syllabus. Subjects include: Human Factors (Psychological and Physiological), Theory of Flight, Airframes and Engines, Aircraft Systems, Flight Instruments, Meteorology, Weather Reports and Forecasting, Pilot Navigation and Radio Navigation, Flight Operations, Air Law, and more. Each chapter remains informatively enhanced with anecdotes that serve as excellent descriptions that ascribe to topics “real world” scenarios. Frequently placed “exam hints” alert students to pay special attention so as to be better prepared to take the written CPL exam. Finally, examples abound throughout the book challenging students to think deeper into their reading, to better consolidate the nuances of the title’s extensive subject matter. For General Aviation pilots seeking to upgrade from their PPL, and for students setting out on a career path in aviation, Flying Beyond serves all professionally minded pilots comprehensively. For readers seeking more, Flying Beyond provides it: beyond what was learned for the PPL, broadening the scope of knowledge necessary to become safe and conscientious professional pilots.
