AEROBATICS. Principles and Practice.
This book is designed to tempt you to explore the wonderful world of aerobatic flight. It shows the basic manoeuvres in simple diagrams and the techniques for those manoeuvres are clearly explained. It also provides an introduction to the effects of the forces of manoeuvring flight on the aircraft structure and on the pilot's body.
Aerobatics represent the most satisfying form of visual flight and can be both challenging and rewarding. The scope is unlimited. The important proviso is that you learn the basics thoroughly and from someone who enjoys and knows aerobatics. Choose the training aircraft and school carefully and try to fly regularly.
"With its excellent diagrammatic depiction of the manoeuvres and clear description of the techniques, together with the introduction to the effects of the forces of manoeuvring flight on both the aircraft structure and the pilots body this book should serve as an admirable adjunct to basic aerobatic instruction." - AEROBATIC NEWS REVIEW
". . .The book is easy to read and full of helpful diagrams that clearly illustrate the text. Aerobatic's physiological effect on the pilot and the aerodynamics involved are a fairly complex subject and one that can be boring for a hands-on pilot who just wants to learn how to carry out the manoeuvres. This book will not bore you and will leave you far better acquainted with the subject. Better still it tells you what can go wrong and follows up with some very useful anecdotal evidence." - FLYER
