- "This is the preparation manual for the FAA's Commercial license from William K. Kershner's 'The Flight Manuals Series,' updated and edited by the author's son, William C. Kershner. Since the first edition of this manual published in 1962, it has long been a standard textbook for veteran pilots preparing for the FAA Commercial Knowledge and Practical flight tests. 'The Advanced Pilot's Flight Manual' is a reference for pilots transitioning to advanced models and types as well as the FAA tests for licensing. This book bridges the gap between theory and practical application, covering the fundamentals of airplane aerodynamics and aircraft performance. Rules of thumb are used throughout as a means of presenting a clearer picture of the recommended performance parameters, and for increasing understanding of the variable factors that affect aircraft operations, such as altitude and temperature. Knowledge of these thumb rules will enable pilots to maximize performance when operating faster aircraft and at higher altitudes. Chapters are dedicated to airplane performance and stability for pilots, checking-out in advanced models and types, emergencies and unusual situations, advanced navigation, high-altitude operations, and preparing for the FAA Commercial Knowledge and Practical Exams. This new edition includes regulatory and procedural updates and information about the FAA's new 'Airmen Certification Standards (ACS).'"--
