This book is not an instruction manual, but an honest encouragement from one pilot to another on ways to fly more and make the most of your licence.
In this day-by-day account, Jason Smart recounts frustration with the weather, the exhaustion, and his own limitations, as well as the many characters he meets along the journey of becoming a private pilot and gaining his wings.
This book is a frank account aimed at anyone interested in learning to fly. It is also for anyone simply curious to know what is involved in becoming a pilot.
The Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) usually takes a minimum of 45 hours of training. With The PPL Companion, you have a guide to help you along the way.
As your training advances, so does the content in the 45 chapters of this book, which mirror your progress and offer helpful insight into the actions and decisions you will make as a trainee pilot.
Inside you will find chapters on the reasons for learning to fly; how to find a flying club; what to expect on your first lesson and the subsequent milestones you’ll reach along the way. Further chapters look at the social side of being a pilot, as well as anxiety and how to fund your flying, plus aspects such as visiting the control tower and learning to look under the engine cowling for a greater understanding of aircraft.
Written in an informal style, The PPL Companion is an easy and relaxed sounding board for anyone considering flight training or already undertaking lessons.
