PROFESSIONAL AIRLINE PILOT HANDBOOKS:BOOK covers pg 3

CHECK-RIDE SURVIVAL GUIDES and PILOT HANDBOOKS: After having been strapped to the pilot seat of lotsa cool airliners for most of his flying career, Captain  Mike realized that the airplane manuals were virtually impossible to read! So, he decided to write his own. What resulted was a set of interesting and plain-language documents that are both entertaining as well as crammed with all the esoteric technical information needed to allow any garden-variety airline pilot to look like he knows what he is doing . . . and be able to pass his check-ride with confidence. Highly recommended by hundreds of satisfied users. Check 'em out by selecting the image on the right.

Available in COLOR, BLACK and WHITE and DOWNLOAD PDF.

 BOOK covers pg 2FLIGHT SIMMERS TRAINING GUIDES:

Captain Mike has prepared three informative documents specifically aimed at the Flight Simmer who wants to fly his "simulated"  airliner just like the pros do. One document ("Flying the Boeing 700 Series ...")deals with flying the "Boeing" way and another ("Sim-Flying the Airbus A300 Series ...") shows you how to do it the "Airbus" way. For those advanced Flight Simmers who just can't get enough detail and want the really hard stuff, he has written the "737NG Training Syllabus" that is much more challenging. These books are also available as downloadable PDF for your tablets and e-readers here.

    AIRPLANE STUFF SERIES:BOOK covers pg 4

These two volumes ("Airplane Stuff" and Airplane Stuff 2") are crammed with delicious graphics and detailed descriptions and tutorials. This is the way Captain Mike would like to see all pilot handbooks made. Highly entertaining and filled with the information about those topics that flight and aviation fanatics love to talk about. Most of the information in these books apply to actual airplane flight dynamics and how they relate to reality-based simulations, the material would be a feast for any individual with an appetite for anything to do with airplanes and flight. Extremely entertaining . . . fasten your seatbelts!

 STOOFDRIVER:  FLYING THE GRUMMAN S2 TRACKER:

BOOK covers pg 5Captain Mike used to be a full-fledged Naval Aviator flying the Grumman S2 Tracker. The rugged twin-engined piston powered airplane was affectionately known as the "STOOF". He took lots of pictures and now that time has turned his experiences into distance memories, he wants to share the USS Hornet Pacific cruise of 1965. The ("STOOF DRIVER") book is crammed with his really fantastic collection of 35mm photographs and personal experiences and impressions. With over 500 individual pictures, the hardcover 8" X 10" full color 200 page document would make a treasured memory for anyone who has ever served in the US Navy, particularly if it was on-board an aircraft carrier.

THEN & NOW: CARTOONS ABOUT AIRLINE PILOTS:BOOK covers pg 7

There is probably nothing that professional pilots love more than a good laugh ... well ... maybe a paper cup half full of cold coffee. Anyway, join in the fun as we meet some of the zany flight crews that naively show their humorous side. "Then & Now: Cartoons about Airline Pilots" is an eclectic collection of funny situations that the guys and gals who populate the cockpits and airplane cabins will share with you and your kids in this great book of good, clean fun. Makes a great gift for any airplane fanatic that you might know ... or even those that you don't know.
