An essential dictionary for everyone in the industry, with more than 11,000 aviation terms, acronyms, and phrases supported by encyclopedia-style definitions and nearly 500 illustrations.
Dale Crane’s ultimate reference book contains more than 11,000 accurate, aviation-specific terms and definitions, updating and gathering all the terms in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations, glossaries from FAA handbooks, advisory circulars and manuals, the Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) and Pilot/Controller Glossary, as well as definitions not found in government publications. Nearly 500 illustrations further define and aid visual recognition of the terms, and useful tables and lists are included in appendices.
In an industry of acronyms and technical language, this comprehensive dictionary is an essential reference book for anyone involved with aviation and/or space organizations—administrators, pilots, maintenance technicians, drone operators, colleges and universities, air traffic controllers, manufacturers, engineers, government agencies, airlines, and corporate flight departments, as well as newcomers to the industry, and those who speak English as a second language.
The ASA Dictionary of Aeronautical Terms, now in its Sixth Edition, is a vital reference tool that belongs on every aviation bookshelf.

It takes practice to sound like a seasoned pilot! Talking on the radio can be intimidating and stressful. Aviation Radio Communications Made Easy will assist you in learning to talk effectively and efficiently on the radio during your flights. Take this communication resource with you on your next flight, to be used as a memory aid, training tool, and confidence builder to develop your communication skills. Soon, your delivery will be smooth and professional and you will fully understand what ATC is telling/asking you.
The templates allow you to construct a communication script for every flight — regardless of its complexity or the number of communications required. Fill in most of the template blanks during preflight, tear them out and take them with you to the cockpit. Sized to fit your kneeboard, they work as speaking notes to lighten your in-flight workload and eliminate the guesswork about when, for what, and to whom you should be speaking.
Multiple copies of each template are included, along with instructions, communication tips and practical examples. Each of the 32 templates (4 copies of each template) matches a different type of radio communication that may be needed in a VFR flight. Take along the templates necessary for the flight, and in effect you create a "communications trip kit" to use during the flight.
This book is especially effective for student pilots, ground schools, limited English-speaking pilots, flight instructors, and pilots transitioning to new airspace.

Single-source manual of what pilots should know about basic aircraft systems. Previously published by Jeppesen.
Previously published by Jeppesen, Aircraft Systems for Pilots is a single-source manual of what pilots should know about basic aircraft systems. It includes a study of the fundamentals of physical matter (from which airplanes are made) and mechanics (how airplane parts act and react). Study of each type of system allows the professional pilot to stay abreast of the critical learning that must occur upon advancement into management of more complex aircraft.
Subjects covered include physics, aircraft engine types and construction, reciprocating engine theory, engine lubrication and cooling, propellers and governors, fuels and fuel systems, power management, supercharging and turbocharging, pressurization and high altitude operations, electrical principles, aircraft electrical systems, hydraulic systems and landing gear, pneumatic and deicing systems, weight and balance, instrument systems, inspections, and much more. Study questions conclude each chapter, and the book is illustrated throughout, and indexed.
In print for more than 30 years and continually updated, this Fourth Edition continues to serve as the comprehensive college textbook for pilots learning aircraft systems.

Master GPS from your desktop! Learn to use the KLN 89B, KLN 94, GNS 430, GNS 530, GX 50/60, and GPSMAP 295 from your computer. PC and Mac compatible.
ASA's GPS Trainer V.2.0 — For renters who may face one brand of GPS one day and another the next...for the instructor teaching in multiple aircraft...for aircraft owners trying to master the nuances of their favorite navigational tool.
ASA has expanded the popular software product GPS Trainer, adding 3 more GPS unit tutorials for a total training package of 6 of the most popular IFR-approved and handheld GPS receivers on the market today.
Learn to use the KLN 89B/94, GNS 430/530, and GPSMAP 295, and the Apollo GX 50/60. The FAA does not mandate design, labeling, function, and operation of GPS receivers. With this lack of standardization, pilots are left to their own devices to learn each unit. Applicable to both VFR and IFR operations, all the tasks GPS can help you with are covered. Exercises are included throughout. Intuitive software is as easy to use as reading a book. Movie clips, animations, original figures and diagrams accelerate the learning process. Emulators integrate with the tutorial for hands-on practice of each task. Includes the manufacturers' simulators for the GNS 430, GNS 530, KLN 89B, and GX 50/60 (manufacturers' simulators not available or included for the GPSMAP 295 and KLN 94). PC and Mac compatible.
GPS Trainer includes a complete orientation on the GPS receivers: what each knob and button does, what information can be gleaned from each screen, how the GPS "pages" work together, etc.
The tutorial is organized into 5 sections to reflect each phase of flight: theory, preflight, enroute, terminal, and approach. All the navigation tasks are covered, including data entry, flight plans, nearest and direct-to operations, IFR departures and arrivals, GPS and overlay approaches, and more! The program features an intuitive program interface, animations, movie clips, original diagrams and figures to support the textual descriptions. Emulators are an intricate part of the tutorial, providing for interactivity and hands-on experience for each task. Read the focused step-by-step instructions for a task, watch a movie clip of the instructor performing the task, then practice it yourself, using the built-in emulators.
The manufacturers' operating manuals and simulators are included on the CD for the GNS 430, GNS 530, KLN 89B, and GX 50/60 (manufacturers' simulators not available or included for the GPSMAP 295 and KLN 94), along with FAA documents pertinent to GPS operations. GPS Trainer is a tutorial that picks up where these materials leave off and focuses on the tasks GPS can perform.
