Takeoffs and Landings

Back in print with a new design, this guide includes instruction on the basics of takeoffs and landings, the realities of flying into and out of an airport, and the functions of the throttle, stick, rudder, and trim. A pilot's pilot, Collins provides a complete and coherent account, from takeoff roll to full stop, of a perfect flight and landing; identifying many common errors pilots make along the way. In addition to extracting from his own lengthy career and personal experience, Collins shares tips and secrets he learned by observing airline pilots, reading military manuals, attending manufacturer's flight training programs, and interviewing some of aviation's most famous thinkers and figures.

About the Author

Leighton Collins first soloed in 1929 in an open-cockpit biplane. He founded "Air Facts" magazine, which he edited and produced almost single-handedly for 35 years.


"A master aviator writes down all he knows about takeoffs and landings. The result is a goldmine... Half a century of close observation and penetrating analysis has gone into this book. We are fortunate to have it. Read it slowly. There is a lot to get." --Wolfgang Langeweische, author, Stick and Rudder
