This book introduces pilots to the fundamentals of today's airline cockpit before they enter training at an airline company. The Pilot's Guide to the Airline Cockpit(previously titled The Pilot's Guide to the Modern Airline Cockpit) bridges the gap between the skills pilots learn during general aviation training, and the skills they will be expected to have when they begin their airline flying career.
Unlike the typical "systems" manual, this book places the pilot in the left seat and takes them step-by-step through a challenging line flight. Pilots will learn how to use the flight management system and autopilot to plan and follow an assigned route, as well as how to deal with realistic enroute scenarios such as vectors, intercepts, holds, diversions, late descents, and many others.Essential reading for anyone who has aspirations to fly for an airline, The Pilot's Guide to the Airline Cockpit is the ideal companion for pilots transitioning from general aviation to regional jets and larger transport-category airplanes. Softcover, 8.25" x 10.75", illustrated, 144 pages.ISBN 978-1-61954-038-5
