A fellow flight instructor introduced me to this book and it is by far the best book for general systems on aircraft I have ever seen. From piston to turbine, many system basics are covered. The writing is just technical enough for you to understand the concepts and theory behind the system being explained, without bogging down in minute details. This is a book every pilot should OWN (especially those with career aspirations) much less read. Some of the book is a little dated, but it's still an excellent reference for all aviators.

You want a good understanding of how systems work in aircraft and this book provides it. The only downside is I feel there are a few basic elements missing, I felt there should have been a more complete explanation of how a vacuum system works. When looking in the index there is only one reference to the word vacuum and it is Vacuum Pumps. For a system that is so integral to instrumentation I expected more and had to search the net for more details on this aircraft system.

This book is great for every GA pilot who wants to know more about his airplane. You don't have to be an engineer to understand the concepts, however some chapters are not quite easy to follow without some previous knowledge. The author builds the bridge from the theory to the operation of the aircraft. Highly recommended!

While reading every single chapter in this book, I couldn't help but feel that it was written just so the author could write a book. It was so redundant that I almost felt like he was getting paid per word. There was so much unnecessary redundancy on topics - there was an explanation, then there would the same explanation reworded, then there would be an over complicated, reworded explanation of the same thing. There is an amazing amount of run-on sentences, bolded terms with no clear/distinct definition, and as mostly open ended review questions. Not to mention, chapters towards the end of the book refer to statements made in the beginning of the book, which refer to charts in the middle of the book. I agree with the other users in saying that if I did not need this for a class I would have burnt it by now.

My instructor had me stumped on how to teach the prop system on a constant speed prop.... the standard books were zero help..but this book saved the day! Good for all sorts of systems.. now if I get stuck somewhere and have major time on my hands..one day I'll read all of it O.o.
