The Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge - Free Copy

Everybody wants to sell you something and during training this can be overwhelming. Everybody seems to have the answer, but at a price. Well, in the FAA system they provide the resources and as a student pilot you need resources to pass the tests. A prime example is the Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge. This is one of the books referenced in the practical test standard and the FAA draws questions from this book for the written test. It stands as a basic reference text for student pilots. For example, a student asked how to calculate course corrections due to wind. I pulled up the relevant chapter on navigation and showed him. Cost nothing and was easy to do. So wouldn’t you like a copy? Better yet wouldn’t you like a free copy? As a tax payer you already paid for the book and you can download as many copies as you want. There is a link in the sidebar to the site or just click on the link above.
