Format: Paperback
I am a student pilot with about 40 hours and I'm preparing for my checkride. In so doing, I have to complete 6 cross country flights. As a student pilot, the process of planning and executing a safe and economical cross country flight is very daunting because of the amount of detail and potential factors to consider. Therefore, I felt like I really needed some supplementary instruction beyond what the pilot's manual and my instructor could offer (instructor time being at a premium because of the hourly rate), hence the reason I bought this book. Beware however, this book does not review any of the details of the navigational planning involved (which is extensive). It seems that the book is written rather for pilots who are already certified and are literally planning to go across the country. It mainly discusses the different atmosperic conditions, terrain, airspace, etc. that you will encounter as you go from one coast to another. The information is very practical and useful to someone reading it with this objective in mind, but if you're someone in my position, the title is a bit misleading. This book is not about flying 50-100 miles to another airport. That being said, what I would recommend is not that you avoid this book but rather that you buy it together with "Light Airplane Navigation Essentials" and read that book first. That gives you the most comprehensive and relevant understanding of the kind of flying that you can expect to do as a student with the objective that you intend to apply your flying skills for practical purposes as opposed to recreational. Happy flying!

I just started this book last night. In the very first chapter, the author states that in order to receive your private pilot certificate, your long solo cross country must be at least 300 miles with one airport being at least 100 miles from the base airport. This isn't true. But, the book was written in 1994 so maybe it was true then.
Here is the FAR:
(ii) One solo cross-country flight of at least 150 nautical miles total distance, with full-stop landings at a minimum of three points, and one segment of the flight consisting of a straight-line distance of at least 50 nautical miles between the takeoff and landing locations.

Generally speaking good book, but I found an error which can be considered very serious. The author states that satellites in GPS system are in geosynchronous orbit which is simply not true (GPS system based on geosynchronous orbit satellites will be not usable near poles). I was really disappointed when I've found such curiosity in an overall interesting book.

Format: Paperback
This was the best book any student pilot,mostly Private Pilot, Insturment Rating Pilot can have because every chapter was really interesting. Some parts can be boring or confusing but when you get hooked on the book, you just simply can't put the book down. It covers all you need to kown about CCF. For ex.lightplane avionics, airspace, how to fly a CC trip and using a Navigaion log, weather flying as in what weather to fly in and what weather to watch out for and stay out of. It also covers one chapter about Mountain Flying and in another chapter night CCF. I also recomend you get tghe book including Light Airplane Essentials (Practical Flying Series).

This was the best book any student pilot (especially Private Pilot and Instrument Rating Pilot) can have because every chapter was really interesting. Some small parts can be boring or confusing but when you get hooked on it, you simply can't put the book down. It covers all you need to know about CCF. For example, lightplane avionics, airspace, how to fly a CC trip, and using a Navigation Log, weather flying as in what weather to fly in and what weather to watch out for and stay out of. It also covers one chapter about Mountain Flying and in another chapter night CCF. I also recommend you get the book Light Airplane Essentials (Practical Flying Series) together with CCF.
