This excellently-written commercial ground school textbook, Flying Beyond: The Canadian Commercial Pilot Textbook, is the perfect educational segue from From the Ground Up into the higher standards required of students seeking their commercial pilot licence.
Authored by experienced and respected Canadian ground school instructor, Chris Hobbs, Flying Beyond takes readers further than what they merely need to know to pass their commercial written examination. While conscientiously fulfilling this latter requirement, Flying Beyond’s content is also written to take students forward on a career path as highly-skilled, knowledgeable, and thoroughly-educated professional aviators.
The topics in Flying Beyond are presented in the order given in Transport Canada’s syllabus. Subjects include: Human Factors (Psychological and Physiological), Theory of Flight, Airframes and Engines, Aircraft Systems, Flight Instruments, Meteorology, Weather Reports and Forecasting, Pilot Navigation and Radio Navigation, Flight Operations, Air Law, and more.
