A easy-to-use guide designed to help student pilots and certificated pilots alike get the most out of the Cessna C172S Skyhawk. Filled with useful tips and procedures developed by the author over thousands of hours of instruction given in the C172S. A great resource for student pilots preparing for their check ride or private pilots preparing for a flight review.
The Concise Guide to the Cessna 172S
Highly recommended for anyone flying or intending to fly the 172S. It presents all the information you need for safe, competent and enjoyable flying. It is organized so that quick reference is possible. A good source too for checkride and BFR review.
Probably the single best resource for learning about the Cessna 172S. The author provides a wealth of knowledge in a concise and precise format. Discussions about maneuvers is invaluable, especially for student pilots but for new CFIs as well.
Best $13 You’ll Ever Spend In Aviation
Career CFI here. This is mandatory reading for my Primary students (Instrument students are required to read Ewings equally comprehensive and useful Concise Guide to IFR), and as the review title says, it’s the best $13 you’ll spend in aviation.
John Ewing is a passionate, active and awesome DPE in the San Franciso Bay Area, and this document follows the Private ACS to the letter — as do John's checkrides. Everythning you need to know, nothing less, lots of hyperlinks to relevant official material … clearly a lot of effort went into compiling this book, and John keeps it current with regualr updates as needed.
Beyond awareness of FAA publications like FAR/AIM, AFH and PHAK, I tell my students this is the single best publication they can use to prepare for their FAA practical exams.
