How Airliners Fly: A Passenger's Guide - Third Edition
If you are one of the millions of airline passengers who take to the air daily and have no idea how an airplane flies or how it is flown - but would like to find out - then How Airliners Fly is for you. It is written by an airline pilot who knows from first-hand experience those questions that are asked most frequently. He knows that for many it is an interest born of curiosity, and in some cases, caused by fear. In this revised third edition Julien Evans explains, in straightforward everyday language, about the airframe and the engines, the flight deck and the controls, how the airplane is flown and the routines followed. In fact, it explains everything the average passenger may wish to know.
"... balanced, informative, comprehensive, totally accurate and , most importantly, interesting." - Pilot magazine
Julien Evans flew Boeing 737s, 757s and 767s during a 36-year career. He was also an instructor and examiner on these types. Now retired from airline flying, he maintains his interest in aviation generally and flies light aircraft.
