✏From the Flight Deck Book Summary : Imagine you’re sitting next to a pilot on a flight and he’s eager to answer all those nagging questions you have about air travel. Are those bumps and noises normal? Why are some take-offs delayed? What happens if there’s a storm? How does this plane stay in the air, anyway? In From the Flight Deck: Plane Talk and Sky Science, pilot, meteorologist, and flight-school instructor Doug Morris lets you take the window seat on a trip around the world, giving you the scoop on everything from take-off to landing. He explains what you see looking out the window, what that window is made of, and how the plane is kept in rigorous flying condition. Perfect for informing the aviation enthusiast and calming the fearful flier, From the Flight Deck tells you everything you want to know about commercial airline travel: the physics of flight, how airplanes work and what they’re made of, how pilots are trained, route planning and the importance of the ground crew, turbulence, flying in storms, what the flight crew gets up to on layovers, and much more. With facts, trivia, humour, and illuminating photos throughout, From the Flight Deck is the ultimate flight companion.

✏Control in the Sky Book Summary : In the first early years of aviation, the control systems and instruments found in a typical aircraft cockpit were few and simple, but did form the basic pattern of requirements still used today. Although pioneering aeroplanes seldom achieved speeds above 100 mph or reached altitudes above 10,000 feet, pilots still required reliable information on speed, altitude, attitude, engine condition and compass direction. Instruments and controls were designed and positioned for mechanical convenience rather than pilot comfort. This situation continued well into the 1930s and then the remarkable increase in aircraft performance created during World War II generated an altogether different working environment for pilots who now had to cope with a multitude of information sources and far more sophisticated control mechanisms. Aircraft designers now considered how best to organise cockpits and flight decks to assist the pilot. This is the history of how ergonomically designed civil and military aircraft cockpits and flight decks evolved. Civil aircraft now regularly fly at transonic speeds at around 35,000 feet, and military jets at twice the speed of sound on the edge of space. These are demanding environments. However, modern cockpit-technologies, with simplified presentation of flight information and finger-tip controls, have eased pilot's tasks.

✏Behind The Flight Deck Door Book Summary : Ever wondered what goes on inside the cockpit of a passenger plane? Ever wanted to know how a jet engine works or what happens if a plane is struck by lightning? Behind the Flight Deck Door provides insider knowledge about everything you have ever wanted to ask a pilot! Since 9/11, flight decks of modern airliners have become off-limits to the flying public. This is despite the fact every year more people take to the skies than ever before. Pilot Brett Manders wants to help you become a savvy traveller by providing insider tips, expert knowledge, and an understanding of what goes on behind the scenes to get you up in the air. All told with a dash of humor, this book will demystify the art of airline travel, address those urban legends, and settle the nerves of any anxious flyers. Simple, concise explanations cover a multitude of things passengers have asked Brett and his colleagues over the years. What is a small technical delay? Can the cabin door be opened mid-flight? How much do pilots really earn and do they get free flights? Can you get stuck to the toilet? Is it still possible to view the flight deck? Brett Manders is a pilot with an Australian Airline. He has over 10,000 hours flying experience on Airbus A320, A321, A330 and Boeing B787 Dreamliner aircraft. Praise for Behind the Flight Deck Door "Brett's uncomplicated, honest, and easy to understand book is a welcome addition on any flight. It offers an enlightening point of view of the all-important necessity of air travel with rare glimpses of the secret world airline pilots inhabit." JULIE POSTANCE, AUTHOR, BREAKING THE SOUND BARRIERS "I really enjoyed reading this as it is an easy read, and really relatable and quite entertaining. As a nervous flyer myself it was quite interesting and reassuring to read all the different things that go on behind the scenes and learn about the ins and outs of flying." SARAH EMERSON, NERVOUS FLYER "This book has so much valuable knowledge that every passenger wants to know and ask. So many things about aircraft, airlines and airports are such a mystery to many people, it is nice to have it explained is simple terms. After reading, I feel lots of little things that bothered me have been put in perspective and it has helped my fear of flying significantly. Behind the Flight Deck Door is a must have book for anyone who travels on airlines!" NISHA SHARMA, NERVOUS FLYER

✏SILENT COCKPIT Book Summary : Some investigators believe that Flight MH 370 was hijacked and it was a crucial part of a special mission that was fixed beforehand. 'Someone' took the control of the cockpit and flew the aircraft to a pre-selected place. They believe the missing of Flight MH 370 is not a history, but a mystery that had left behind a series of unanswered question, such as what had actually happened in the cockpit? Who changed the flight path? Was it a part of an organized plan? Who switched off the transponder, preventing anyone from tracking the aircraft? Who would be benefitted? The important answers probably don't lie in the ocean but on land. Somehow the focus was changed. This book has tried to find some reliable answers.

✏Coping with Computers in the Cockpit Book Summary : First published in 1999, this volume examined how increasing cockpit automation in commercial fleets across the world has had a profound impact on the cognitive work that is carried out on the flight deck. Pilots have largely been transformed into supervisory controllers, managing a suite of human and automated resources. Operational and training requirements have changed, and the potential for human error and system breakdown has shifted. This compelling book critically examines how airlines, regulators, educators and manufacturers cope with these and other consequences of advanced aircraft automation.

✏The Pilot s Guide to the Airline Cockpit Book Summary : The fundamentals of the automated airline cockpit are introduced to commercial multiengine instrument pilots who aspire to fly for an airline company in this handy book. Whether it is a turboprop, a regional jet, a Boeing, or an Airbus, nearly every airliner in operation today contains a flight-management system, autopilot, and other glass-cockpit systems, which represent a gap between the skills learned during general aviation training and experience and the skills pilots are expected to have when they begin their airline flying career, and this book gives a head start on bridging that gap and acquiring those necessary skills. Unlike the typical theory-oriented systems manuals, The Pilot's Guide to the Airline Cockpit places readers in the left seat and takes them step by step through a challenging line flight, providing for real-world application. It teaches how to use the flight-management system and autopilot to plan and follow an assigned route and how to deal with realistic en route scenarios, including vectors, intercepts, holds, diversions, late descents, and many others. Along the way, readers learn how to decide which automation features to use and when, the limits of the automation's capabilities, how to monitor the progress of a flight, and how to remain in the loop while the automation performs its work. Updated to catch up to newer practices, this revised second edition is essential reading for those who desire to fly for an airline, and it is the ideal companion for transitioning from general aviation to regional jets and larger transport-category airplanes.
