Description

Aviation book
AERONAUTICS
PREFACE TO VOLUME I
LEARNING to fly has many points in common with learning to drive a car. It is not necessary for the learner to devote too much time to the study of theoretical principles. There are, in fact, to - day many thousands of expert car drivers who know very little about the construction of the modern car or the operation of the internal combustion engine.
( ... ) The subject - matter of this first volume is devoted mainly to the essential preliminaries of flight and the principles and practice of flying. No sharp distinction has been drawn between civil and military flying, because there is an increasing tendency for these two branches to merge. The Civil Air Guard scheme, which forms the subject - matter of the opening article, therefore provides a fitting introduction to the work as a whole.
Before a would - be pilot can ’ take the air ’ he must have an elementary knowledge of the functions of the various controls. It is equally necessary that he should know something about the licences and regulations which have been framed to enhance his own and other peoples' safety. All these matters are dealt with in the early sections of the work.
( ... ) Weather lore, or, to give it its more scientific name, meteorology, is another fundamental necessity for the successful flying man.
( ... ) The above are just a few of the outstanding features of this volume, but it may safely be said that every page contains information both interesting and useful to everyone engaged in modern aviation.
