The Artistry of the Great Flyer teaches stick and rudder skills all too often missed in pilot training. For those pilots who have grown fearful, bored, or uninspired by flying, Jim Alsip offers profound insight that will have you flying safer, better, and with more joy.

Most pilots know of a good pilot who lost his life in a maneuvering accident. Alsip's book provides tools for avoiding tragedy-surprising skills that help pilots avoid the deadly "booby trap" turn.

Good stick and rudder skills can save a plane and a life in a pinch, but they require training and practice. In an emergency, pilots fly like they train; sight picture is critical to that performance. Here, Alsip aptly quotes his mother: "Look where you are going, and watch what you are doing." While the lighthearted approach is appreciated, the sentiment is deadly serious.

Alsip is a highly skilled master of flying. In The Artistry of the Great Flyer, readers will develop life-saving aerial dexterity to recover from upsets and spins, and gain the skills needed to increase flyer confidence and fun.

About the Author

Jim Alsip lives and does business as Dylan Aviation in Indiantown, Florida. He is a master certified flight instructor with an aerobatic endorsement and is an International Aerobatic Club competitor as well as a judge for regional aerobatic contests. He holds seminars at the Sun-n-Fun Fly-In at Lakeland, Florida, and has spoken at the FAA's Lakeland Production Facility. He is also a charter member of the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators and an active FAA Safety Team Representative. Alsip has years of experience instructing pilots in an airplane with tandem seating. His greatest insight as an instructor is watching where a pilot is looking during maneuvers; having learned that the head and visual focus control the body, Alsip can then see what the pilot is missing. In his book" Artistry of a Great Flyer," Alsip highlights stall, upset, and spin recovery along with rudder fundamentals that will save a pilot's life.
