Prospective pilots are offered a thorough understanding of flying fundamentals as well as the aeronautical knowledge needed to earn a private-pilot certificate in this guide to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Knowledge Exams. Topics such as basic aerodynamics, flight instruments, communication procedures, and weather are discussed and augmented with checklists, mnemonic devices, specific tips, and special learning techniques that help students quickly grasp the information, pass the required tests and checkrides, and have an operational and practical understanding of the private-pilot certificate. Each chapter concludes with sample questions taken directly from FAA exams.
