"This is a combined edition of two previous books by Ron Fowler, entitled "Making Perfect Takeoffs" and "Making Perfect Landings" which were both originally published by Iowa State University Press (in 1984 and 1991); in 2006 ASA published "Making Perfect Landings" and now the two books are being made into one book with two parts. These two books show pilots how to develop a keep sense of awareness in each of these critical phases of flight -- and to convert that awareness into perfect takeoffs and landings, using the tips and techniques suggested by this Gold Seal Flight Instructor with over 12,000 hours as a CFI"-Provided by publisher.

Making Perfect Takeoffs--in the style of its companion, Making Perfect Landings--addresses departure as a series of steps requiring total awareness of situation, airplane, and self. In both books, applied reasoning is encouraged, and pilots are taught to identify and assess circumstances and conditions, then implement appropriate procedures.Both are compact manuals that store easily in the cockpit. Chapters conclude with Preflight Reminders and In-Flight Aids summaries that present critical data at a glance, for quick reference on the ground and in the air.

Veteran journalist and author of The Commandos Douglas Waller chronicles his rare and intimate experience with the training program for Navy pilots in this “engrossing saga that will likely become an unofficial recruiting tool for naval aviation” (Publishers Weekly). Waller, who was granted permission to participate in the pilots’ grueling training regime, has written an absorbing behind-the-scenes account of the physical and psychological trials endured by the most specialized group of pilots in military history. From his bird’s-eye view in the passenger’s seat, Waller follows pilot trainees through two years of intense preparation. He offers vivid illustrations from the fray: hair-raising aerial dogfights; stomach-swallowing dive-bombing runs; high-speed tactical maneuvers grazing the desert floor; and numerous nerve-twisting aircraft carrier takeoffs and landings. In addition to his own experiences and those of the group of trainees he joins, his research is based on interviews with hundreds of other students and their instructors. Hurtling through the air at death-defying speeds, these pilots-in-training struggle to maintain their composure while withstanding conditions that are designed to challenge them to the very limits of human endurance. Waller’s deftly drawn portraits of the men and women he encounters in this singular culture of elite pilots are as satisfying as his adventure narrative. The pilots, whose grit, determination, and mental agility operate on an elevated threshold, come into sharp focus behind Waller’s keen lens: their aspirations, awe inspiring. Air Warriors combines an examination of the modern Navy, recovering from past sex scandals, with a portrayal of a privileged cadre of men and women whose ambition and commitment coexist within a tightly knit group. Waller is able to capture images of these pilots training, living, and fighting with an acuity and intelligence that are often absent from Hollywood and television treatments of this diverse and fascinating subculture. Air Warriors takes us inside the cockpit and behind closed doors for the real story of the making of a Navy pilot.
