{detailed description}Flying the Big Jets doesn't attempt to tell a story but simply presents the facts that people want to know about the world of the jumbos. How does a big jet fly? How long is the take-off run at maximum weight? How much fuel is carried on a trans-Atlantic flight? How do the radios work? What is it like talking to Bombay 1000 miles away? What aircraft maintenance is required? How often are the tyres changed? What is the life style of a pilot? The answers to these and a thousand other questions are given in sufficient detail to satisfy the most inquisitive of readers.
Chapter by chapter the reader is taken gently from the basics of the big jets in preparation for the pilot's seat on an actual flight from London to New York. Examine the weather forecast with the Captain, monitor the flight crew's checks, watch the take-off from the flight deck, listen to the radio reports along the way, view the mid-Atlantic weather from above the clouds, witness the preparations for descent, and experience the excitement of landing at New York.
Flying the Big Jets is a comprehensive book which reveals as never before the every-day working environment of the modern long haul airline pilot.
