    You must really love small aircraft an awful lot to be able to produce a book like this! More than 800 aircraft are listed in this bible of more than 400 pages thick! It is something like a Janes Defense…but then different. Not all ‘light aircraft’ are enlisted in this book, else it would be twice […]

At least the book provides cooling with […]

    Review written by: Max Heldring

    The title of this splendid e-book, written by Jennifer Coutts Clay, doesn’t quite cover the load, because the content contains much more than just information about the decoration of the modern jetliners. This book describes the development of the airplane interior since the introduction of the first generation commercial jetliners. Not only the upholstery of […]

    “It’s possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill”- Wilbur Wright. That statement sets the tone for this little book. CRM (Crew Resource Management) is then outlined from multiple point of views. This is a book about cockpit CRM. Next to the ‘theory’ luckily also a lot of examples are used in […]

    No, no, stop! Don’t scroll down to the next review…read this one for a moment! In the past I didn’t know so well what I had to do with delta-flying. I wondered sometimes if it was something for me, but I think I lacked courage to really hang beneath a piece of fabric and sail […]
