Product Description

WHAT’S IN STICK AND RUDDER: The invisible secret of all heavier-than-air flight: the Angle of Attack. What it is, and why it can’t be seen. How lift is made, and what the pilot has to do with it. Why airplanes stall How do you know you’re about to stall? The landing approach. How the pilot’s eye functions in judging the approach. The visual clues by which an experienced pilot unconsciously judges: how you can quickly learn to use them. “The Spot that does not move.” This is the first statement of this phenomenon. A foolproof method of making a landing approach across pole lines and trees. The elevator and the throttle. One controls the speed, the other controls climb and descent. Which is which?

The rudder does NOT turn the airplane the way a boat’s rudder turns the boat. Then what does it do? How a turn is flown. The role of ailerons, rudder, and elevator in making a turn. The landing–how it’s made. The visual clues that tell you where the ground is.The “tail-dragger” landing gear and what’s tricky about it. This is probably the only analysis of tail-draggers now available to those who want to fly one. The tricycle landing gear and what’s so good about it. A strong advocacy of the tricycle gear written at a time when almost all civil airplanes were taildraggers. Why the airplane doesn’t feel the wind. Why the airplane usually flies a little sidewise. Plus: a chapter on Air Accidents by Leighton Collins, founder and editor of AIR FACTS. His analyses of aviation’s safety problems have deeply influenced pilots and aeronautical engineers and have contributed to the benign characteristics of today’s airplane. Stick and Rudder is the first exact analysis of the art of flying ever attempted. It has been continously in print for thirty-three years. It shows precisely what the pilot
