the learning never stops!

International Operations Flight Manual

Book Notes

I wrote the international operations manual for several corporate aviation management companies and always wanted to publish one with much more than they would allow. This is it. It is just over 600 pages with a hard cover and lots and lots of reference material. You will learn the basics, such as how to plot a position. You will learn some pretty advanced art too, like the ins and outs of ADS-B Out, ADS-C, CPDLC, and so on. There are things you may have never heard of but can use if the chips are down, like the true course 10-degree tables. If there is source material to back it up, it is quoted directly just so you have it.
