TO BE A PILOT. 5th edition.
For more than sixteen years this book has been a leading source of information for those who wish to find out about flying and what it takes to become a pilot. Under current proposals the UK's Civil Aviation Authoruty
licensing regulations will harmonise with those of the european Community in July 1999 for fixed-wind pilots and June 2000 for helicopter pilots. This new edition contains full details of the proposed European legislation and the current UK requirements.
The book advises on how to become a private commercial, airline or military pilot. Both fixed-wing and helicopter training courses are explained and the many lists of contacts and addresses in the industry and of flying schools and clubs have been updated and verified. This is not intended as a training manual, but a book to whet the appetites of aspiring private and professional flyers.
