Description
This new Second Edition of The Pilot's Guide to the Airline Cockpit (previously titled, The Pilot's Guide to the Modern Airline Cockpit), introduces you to the fundamentals of today's airline cockpit before you enter training at an airline company. Whether it is a turboprop, a regional jet, a Boeing, or an Airbus, most every airliner in operation today contains a flight management system, and autopilot, and other glass-cockpit systems. These systems represent a gap between the skills you learn during your general aviation experience and the skills you will be expected to have when you begin your airline flying career. This book will give you a head start on bridging that gap and acquiring those necessary skills.

Unlike the typical "systems" manual, The Pilot's guide to the Airline Cockpit places you in the left seat and takes you step-by-step through a challenging line flight. It teaches about the airline cockpit in terms of what you already know as a commercial multiengine instrument pilot. You will learn how to use the flight management system and autopilot to plan and follow an assigned route. You will learn to deal with realistic enroute scenarios such as vectors, intercepts, holds, diversions, late descents, and many others. Along the way, you will learn how to decide which automation features to use and when, the limits of the automation's capabilities, how to monitor the progress of your flight, and remain in-the-loop while the automation performs its work.

This book is essential reading for anyone who has aspirations to fly for an airline — it is the ideal companion as you transition from general aviation to regional jets, and then to larger transport-category aeroplanes.

More about ASA

ASA was started as Merrell Aviation Ground School by Creighton Merrell in 1940. The company�s primary goal soon became the training of post-war military pilots returning from active duty to work in the early civilian airlines. Plotters, regulations and training manuals were the first products. In 1960, the company broadened its production and development efforts with additional pilot supplies and books added to the ground school training line. Aviation Supplies and Academics, Inc. does business as �ASA�. ASA is the leading publisher of aviation books and the largest producer of pilot supplies in the USA today, providing trusted materials for more than 76 years.
