This Private Pilot Maneuvers manual uses step-by-step procedure descriptions and over 100 full-color figures to help you visualize and understand each maneuver you perform in the airplane. Skill Enhancement Insets provide expanded instructional guidance, helpful hints, explanations of common errors, and rules of thumb that can help you perform each maneuver precisely the first time. To prepare for your private pilot checkride, you can refer to the associated FAA practical test standards presented with each maneuver description. In addition, exercises allow you to evaluate your understanding of the maneuvers. For easy reference, the maneuvers are numbered and grouped into categories based on similar operational characteristics. The spiral-bound design allows the manual to lay flat for ease of study and instruction, whether you are on the ground or in flight.
