Description

Prior to take off the flight engineer runs through the checklist with the pilots. After takeoff, he pulls up the landing gear, sets the throttles for climbing power, log the cylinder... At cruising altitude he determines the cruising power to be used, again synchronizes the propellers and writes into the engine log all pertinent information required.

 

This revised third edition of The Flight Engineers Manual contains all of the material from the previous edition as well as considerable new material, notably on the Civil Air Regulations and the written examination. The most important change in the C. A. R. is a completely new and more comprehensive Part 40, which covers the operation and certification of scheduled interstate air carriers. The typical written examination in Chapter II reflects this change. Among the other new material are sample examinations on the Lockheed Super Constellation Model 1049 and the Douglas DC-7, both included in this manual for the first time. To be a flight engineer on United States air carrier aircraft you must hold a valid Flight Engineer Certificate. You are qualified for this rating if you can meet certain reasonable standards of education, experience and physical well-being, and if you can pass an examination designed to test your knowledge and skill. It is the purpose of this manual to prepare you for the written part of the examination and, to a certain extent, the oral and practical phases. The text is composed of the material covered in the CAA examination, as well as a good deal of fundamental flight engineering data that will be of help in performing your duties aboard an airline transport. The last part of the book is devoted to multiple-choice examination questions, with answers, that are typical of those you will encounter when you take the CAA written examination.  

 

(...) This new third edition of The Flight Engineers Manual has been revised to include all current developments in aircraft, instruments, and powerplants, and in standard flight engineering practices. All the latest amendments to the Civil Air Regulations are included, and the typical examination questions have been brought up-to-date to conform with changes in the CAA's procedures. The first edition was published in 1947 and the second completely revised edition in 1953. Both editions have been widely used as a textbook and refresher study in the theory and practice of flight engineering.
