Air Law: A comprehensive sourcebook for Southern African pilots is the first book on air law published by a leading academic and is intended to serve the Southern African pilots' community. Written in a straight-forward style, Air Law is fully referenced and clearly presented. The book provides student pilots and their instructors with the in-depth knowledge that pilots need to pass their examinations and obtain their licences. Air Law offers private pilots a source of legal reference that will enable them to remain competent and compliant aviators and guides them through complex regulations. Air Law will also help commercial pilots to secure the core knowledge of air law that they need to progress to advanced procedures. The book contains a section intended for drone pilots. Air Law tells a story: that of flying safely. The book offers readers who are passionate about aviation a deep insight into the art of safe flying. You will follow a VFR pilot on a cross-country flight, and see how the rules, regulations, and demands of air law are there to produce better pilots, and to make flying a unique and long-lasting human experience.

Secrets From The Cockpit - Pilots Behaving Badly And Other Flying Stories (Paperback): Robert Schapiro Secrets From The Cockpit - Pilots Behaving Badly And Other Flying Stories (Paperback)

Robert Schapiro always wanted to fly. Challenging anti-Semitic bullying, mockery and fierce rivalry, he realised his dream by earning his wings in the South African Air Force and going on to command C-47 Dakotas in the Border War.

He joined South African Airways (SAA) in 1979, soon learning it was a time when SAA crews were dominated by the ‘Royal Family’ – captains who thought themselves above the rules and who spent time overseas on drinking binges or coaxing air hostesses to be their ‘airline wives’.

When sanctions forced SAA to cut back on its routes, he was seconded to Japan’s Nippon Cargo Airlines, routinely flying between New York and Tokyo, and grappling with often-hilarious cultural misunderstandings as he adapted to a Japanese style of operations.

Schapiro is disarmingly frank about life as an international pilot. He divulges near misses, emergency landings, navigation errors, passenger shenanigans (seat sex, anyone?), how pilots control rowdy travellers and absorbing detail about the technique of flying different aircraft types. Uplifting and humorous, his memoir offers a rare slice of aviation history.

A Life in Flying. Stories From a Pilot (Paperback): James Robert Snee A Life in Flying. Stories From a Pilot (Paperback)
James Robert Snee
R366 Discovery Miles 3 660 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

A rich fund of anecdotes drawn from the authora s time as an airline pilot and manager which spanned a forty year career, starting in the 1960s. Roughly tracing the authora s career, each story paints a different picture, be it be of a pilot, his faults and foibles, an experience the author had, a management problem and more. The backdrop is aviation but many of these stories could just as easily be transposed to a different setting. Most, but not all, have a strong flavour of humour and/or irony running through them. In todaya s world of political correctness and in a society otherwise constrained by litigious lawyers and an overbearing press many of these [mostly amusing] stories almost defy belief. Such has the world, and the world of aviation, moved on, few of the present crop of young pilots flying today would believe what went on behind closed doors. And neither would the rest of us!

Flying Camelot brings us back to the post-Vietnam era, when the US Air Force launched two new, state-of-the art fighter aircraft: the F-15 Eagle and the F-16 Fighting Falcon. It was an era when debates about aircraft superiority went public-and these were not uncontested discussions. Michael W. Hankins delves deep into the fighter pilot culture that gave rise to both designs, showing how a small but vocal group of pilots, engineers, and analysts in the Department of Defense weaponized their own culture to affect technological development and larger political change. The design and advancement of the F-15 and F-16 reflected this group's nostalgic desire to recapture the best of World War I air combat. Known as the "Fighter Mafia," and later growing into the media savvy political powerhouse "Reform Movement," it believed that American weapons systems were too complicated and expensive, and thus vulnerable. The group's leader was Colonel John Boyd, a contentious former fighter pilot heralded as a messianic figure by many in its ranks. He and his group advocated for a shift in focus from the multi-role interceptors the Air Force had designed in the early Cold War towards specialized air-to-air combat dogfighters. Their influence stretched beyond design and into larger politicized debates about US national security, debates that still resonate today. A biography of fighter pilot culture and the nostalgia that drove decision-making, Flying Camelot deftly engages both popular culture and archives to animate the movement that shook the foundations of the Pentagon and Congress.

'People often say that non-fiction books read like fast-moving thrillers, but this one genuinely does... This is a splendid book - and highly recommended.' Daily Mail A remarkable piece of investigative journalism into one of the most pervasive and troubling mysteries of recent memory. 01:20am, 8 March 2014. Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, carrying 239 passengers, disappeared into the night, never to be seen or heard from again. The incident was inexplicable. In a world defined by advanced technology and interconnectedness, how could an entire aircraft become untraceable? Had the flight been subject to a perfect hijack? Perhaps the pilots lost control? And if the plane did crash, where was the wreckage? Writing for Le Monde in the days and months after the plane's disappearance, journalist Florence de Changy closely documented the chaotic international investigation that followed, uncovering more questions than answers. Riddled with inconsistencies, contradictions and a lack of basic communication between authorities, the mystery surrounding flight MH370 only deepened. Now, de Changy offers her own explanation. Drawing together countless eyewitness testimonies, press releases, independent investigative reports and expert opinion, The Disappearing Act offers an eloquent and deeply unnerving narrative of what happened to the missing aircraft. An incredible feat of investigative journalism and a testament to de Changy's tenacity and resolve, this book is an exhaustive, gripping account into one of the most profound mysteries of the 21st century.

How did the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) 'cavalry of the air' transform into the strategic RAF of the Cold War? The flying lives of these three pilots combine across the years to illustrate how it happened. Trained on Bristol Boxkites in 1912, Major Leonard Dawes helped shape the RFC in its infancy. Posted to France with BE2s, he saw action at the birth of battlefield reconnaissance and air fighting, then activated many new squadrons during the First World War. Joining the RAF in 1923, Group Captain Dickie Barwell became a fighter pilot and respected leader of men. As a Hurricane squadron commander, he routed the first major Luftwaffe air attack of the Second World War and flew with Bader's Wing in the Battle of Britain. While commanding RAF Biggin Hill, he flew combat operations over France before his death in a friendly-fire incident in 1942. Squadron Leader Brian Fern learned to fly at Ponca City, Oklahoma, in 1942, then trained hundreds of RAF bomber pilots during the Second World War. Post-war tours on Canberra bombers and spy flights in Chipmunks were followed by selection to the elite Valiant bomber force, where he became a leading exponent of in-flight refuelling, which finally gave the RAF its global reach. Combining these three stories into a narrative that explores the rise of the RAF through an era of dazzling technological breakthroughs and ever-changing operational requirements, Alastair Goodrum tells the story of a journey through adversity to the stars.
