Glider Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge by Russell Holtz
The Glider Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge is designed to be used with its companion text, the Flight Training Manual for Gliders. These books were written specifically for the student pursuing a Private Pilot Certificate with a Glider rating, although they are also a useful aide for preparing for a Commercial or Instructor rating, or for preparing for a Biennial Flight Review.
The Glider Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge contains all of the information that you must learn to meet the FAA requirements, to pass the FAA written test, and to pass the SSA bronze badge written test.
Inside the front cover of this handbook, you will find a list of topics titled “Aeronautical Knowledge Progress Record”. The progress record includes every knowledge area that the student must master before taking the Private Pilot Knowledge Test, often referred to as the “written test”. For every topic in the progress record, there is a corresponding section in this handbook. Extra copies of the progress record are available at the publishers website at www.GliderBooks.com.
In the back of the manual, you will find review questions for each section. They consist of a combination of original questions, and questions taken from the FAA Airman Knowledge Test Question bank. An answer key is also included so that you can check your answers.
