John Lowery's "Professional Pilot" is about decision making: that is, the element that sets the captain apart from the rest of the crew. It is filled with the kind of insightful tips, stories, facts and mythbusting that will change how you operate as PIC. Far from your typical textbook on aerodynamics and systems, this book takes you right up front to learn from a master turbine pilot who has been there. In this book, practical operational concepts combine with personal experience to offer techniques for enhancing both actions necessary to become an expert pilot. Revised to include up-to-date cockpit and airport procedures communications and navigation equipment, this guide provides real-life insight into the day-to-day flight. Going beyond regulations and performance, this reference contains aeronautical wisdom gained from takeoff speeds, runway contamination, high-altitude flight, icy conditions, rapid decompression, and in-topics covered, providing information for both aspiring and experienced pilots. The author infuses 50 years of experience as a corporate pilot and pilot examiner into fluid discussions that probe the details all career aviators must understand. Pilots will achieve a new level of understanding about day-to-day, real-world flying and gain a full indoctrination into the topics that matter when flying heavy, high, and fast.
