Everything one (an amateur like me, SIM person) needs to know about flying is between these two book covers. Covers all subjects that one needs to know and understand. Excellent presentation, great graphics and very clear pictures. Cuts down a lot of searching on the Internet and it's all available in a compact format and easy to understand.

The service from Amazon is excellent. Great selection and effective search mechanism and impressive delivery.

Thank you.

Outstanding Book! I am an experienced pilot and bought this book to review some basics on advanced topics regarding global navigation. The book is well written and is a great read for a new or experienced pilot. I highly recommend it to any pilot wanting a good foundation or excellent review of the many different aspects of aircraft navigation. The book specifically covers global navigation in exceptional detail. Nice job to the auther Donald J. Clausing. After reading this book I sought out other titles written by him for personal reading.

Format: Paperback
This book deals mainly with the basic "old" stuff.

I was expecting to get much more information on using modern navigation systems that are common today - GPS, FMS, EFIS etc.
