The Pilot's Handbook - The Flight Bag Book

How to Do It!

The Pilot's Handbook is an illustrated how-to guide of procedures, operations, communications and reference for all general-aviation pilots and instrument students.

Subtitled The Flight Bag Book, this convenient, cockpit-handy manual features in-depth and specific procedural descriptions intended for reading on the ground, and checklists on heavy tabbed section dividers for use in the air. Hundreds of full-color illustrations illuminate the explanations, and a lie-flat spiral binding allows for folding over or full opening.

  • Complete illustrated explanations for reading on the ground.
  • Checklists for use in the air.
  • Reference, glossary and detailed index.
  • Small enough to put in your flight bag or leave in the aircraft.
  • Tabbed pages for easy location of sections.
  • Spiral binding allows for full opening.
  • 338 pages, 288 illustrations.

All for less than the price of an hour of ground instruction.

Meet the Author

Scott Todd wrote "The Pilot's Handbook" during his years as a flight instructor. A former high-school English teacher, newspaper reporter, teacher of English as a foreign language, Peace Corps volunteer, and radio DJ, he is currently a captain and instructor for a large fractional operator. He lives with his wife and son in the Boston area, where he plays competitive ultimate Frisbee against people many years his junior.

He writes:

"I conceived of this book not long after I got my own instrument rating. I rented a plane for two weeks to take a long father-son trip, and being a fairly new pilot, I wanted a guide to take along. The Jeppesen Commercial/Instrument Manual, while a good text, was so large and heavy that I needed to redo the weight and balance calculations whenever I threw it in the back of the plane. So I started photocopying the specific pages I really needed. At some point I thought, 'This is silly; there must be an actual book like this -- an illustrated guide to procedures that's small enough to put in a flight bag.' I started looking, and discovered that actually, no, there was no such thing. When I became a flight instructor, I started writing that very book."

Eight years later, here it is.
