This eighth edition, edited by William K. Kershner's son, William C. Kershner, is ideal for private pilots seeking additional training or those considering a career as a professional pilot. The commercial certificate opens up possibilities such as flying local charters to getting a flight instructor's license, and from flying a corporate high-performance airplane to flying for the airlines. Performing a wider variety of flying gives opportunities to see and experience aviation beyond the private license.
Illustrated by the author, this textbook includes subject on:
Airplane performance and stability for pilots
Checking out in advanced models and types
Emergencies and unusual situations
Preparing for the commercial knowledge and practical tests
