Imagine you’re sitting next to a pilot on a flight and she or he is eager to answer all those nagging questions you have about air travel. Are those bumps and noises normal? Why are some takeoffs delayed? What happens if there’s a storm? How does this plane stay in the air, anyway?
In From the Flight Deck: Plane Talk and Sky Science, pilot, meteorologist and flight-school instructor Doug Morris lets you take the window seat on a trip around the world, giving you the scoop on everything from takeoff to landing and beyond. He explains what you see looking out the window, what that window is made of, and how the plane is kept in rigorous flying condition.
Perfect for informing the aviation enthusiast and calming the fearful flier, From the Flight Deck tells you everything you want to know about commercial airline travel: the physics of flight, how airplanes work and what they’re made of, how pilots are trained, route planning and the importance of the ground crew, turbulence, flying in storms, what the flight crew gets up to on layovers, and much more.
With facts, trivia, humour, and illuminating photos throughout, From the Flight Deck is the ultimate flight companion.
