Kurzbeschreibung

7. März 1998
WHAT'S IN STICK AND RUDDER: The invisible secret of all heavier-than-air flight: the Angle of Attack. What it is, and why it can't be seen. How lift is made, and what the pilot has to do with it. Why airplanes stall How do you know you're about to stall? The landing approach. How the pilot's eye functions in judging the approach. The visual clues by which an experienced pilot unconsciously judges: how you can quickly learn to use them. "The Spot that does not move." This is the first statement of this phenomenon. A foolproof method of making a landing approach across pole lines and trees. The elevator and the throttle. One controls the speed, the other controls climb and descent. Which is which? The paradox of the glide. By pointing the nose down less steeply, you descend more steeply. By pointing the nose down more steeply, you can glide further. What's the rudder for? The rudder does NOT turn the airplane the way a boat's rudder turns the boat. Then what does it do? How a turn is flown. The role of ailerons, rudder, and elevator in making a turn. The landing--how it's made. The visual clues that tell you where the ground is. The "tail-dragger" landing gear and what's tricky about it. This is probably the only analysis of tail-draggers now available to those who want to fly one. The tricycle landing gear and what's so good about it. A strong advocacy of the tricycle gear written at a time when almost all civil airplanes were taildraggers. Why the airplane doesn't feel the wind. Why the airplane usually flies a little sidewise. Plus: a chapter on Air Accidents by Leighton Collins, founder and editor of AIR FACTS. His analyses of aviation's safety problems have deeply influenced pilots and aeronautical engineers and have contributed to the benign characteristics of today's airplane. Stick and Rudder is the first exact analysis of the art of flying ever attempted. It has been continously in print for thirty-three years. It shows precisely what the pilot does when he flies, just how he does it, and why. Because the basics are largely unchanging, the book therefore is applicable to large airplanes and small, old airplanes and new, and is of interest not only to the learner but also to the accomplished pilot and to the instructor himself. When Stick and Rudder first came out, some of its contents were considered highly controversial. In recent years its formulations have become widely accepted. Pilots and flight instructors have found that the book works. Today several excellent manuals offer the pilot accurate and valuable technical information. But Stick and Rudder remains the leading think-book on the art of flying. One thorough reading of it is the equivalent of many hours of practice.

Synopsis

What's in "Stick and Rudder": the invisible secret of all heavier-than-air flight - the Angle of Attack, what it is, and why it can't be seen. How lift is made, and what the pilot has to do with it; why airplanes stall; how do you know you're about to stall? The landing approach. How the pilot's eye functions in judging the approach. The visual clues by which an experienced pilot unconsciously judges: how you can quickly learn to use them. "The Spot that does not move." This is the first statement of this phenomenon. A foolproof method of making a landing approach across pole lines and trees. The elevator and the throttle. One controls the speed, the other controls climb and descent. Which is which? The paradox of the glide. By pointing the nose down less steeply, you descend more steeply. By pointing the nose down more steeply, you can glide further.What's the rudder for? The rudder does Not turn the airplane the way a boat's rudder turns the boat. Then what does it do? How a turn is flown. The role of ailerons, rudder, and elevator in making a turn. The landing - how it's made. The visual clues that tell you where the ground is.

The "tail-dragger" landing gear and what's tricky about it. This is probably the only analysis of tail-draggers now available to those who want to fly one. The tricycle landing gear and what's so good about it. A strong advocacy of the tricycle gear written at a time when almost all civil airplanes were taildraggers. Why the airplane doesn't feel the wind. Why the airplane usually flies a little sidewise. This book also includes: a chapter on Air Accidents by Leighton Collins, founder and editor of "Air Facts". His analyses of aviation's safety problems have deeply influenced pilots and aeronautical engineers and have contributed to the benign characteristics of today's airplane."Stick and Rudder" is the first exact analysis of the art of flying ever attempted. It has been continuously in print for thirty-three years, and has enjoyed steadily increasing sales. Flight instructors have found that the book does indeed explain important phases of the art of flying, in a way the learner can use. It shows precisely what the pilot does when he flies, just how he does it, and why. These basics are largely unchanging.

The book therefore is applicable to large airplanes and small, old airplanes and new, and is of interest not only to the learner, but also to the accomplished pilot and to the instructor himself.When "Stick and Rudder" first came out, some of its contents were considered highly controversial. In recent years, its formulations have become widely accepted. Pilots and flight instructors have found that the book works. Today several excellent manuals offer the pilot accurate and valuable technical information. But "Stick and Rudder" remains the leading think-book on the art of flying. One thorough reading of it should be the equivalent of many hours of practice.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Wolfgang Langewiesche first soloed in 1934 in Chicago. Early in his flying he was struck by a strange discrepancy: in piloting, the words and the realities did not agree. What pilots claimed to be doing in flying an airplane, was not what they did in practice. Langewiesche set himself the task of describing more accurately and realistically what the pilot really does when he flies. The first result was a series of articles in Air Facts, analyzing various points of piloting technique. In 1944 Stick and Rudder was published.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The all time classic about the fundamentals of flying. 27. September 1997
Von Paladin
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Stick & Rudder is an all time favorite about how an airplane flies. Written over 50 years ago, it explains in a very easy-to-understand manner the basic four forces of flight, the three axis of motion, how an airfoil works, how basic aerodynamics affects flight, and how to perform the fundamental maneuvers. The information is as valid now as the day it was written. As a ground and flight instructor, I have used this as a basic text for all my students for the past 12 years. Discusses in detail straight & level flight, climbs and descents, turns, stalls, takeoffs, landings, torque, various aircraft configurations, and piloting techniques. An absolute "must have" for every pilot from Recreational to Airline Transport certificate, this is the FIRST book every aspiring pilot should read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent resource 18. Januar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I had trouble handling stalls...this book definitely helped me understand why a stall happens, and in turn that helped me recover better when I perform them. Don't let the publishing date on this book fool you...it's holds just a true today, even with the evolution of general aviation aircraft.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Tutorial on the Principles of Flying 3. Januar 2000
Von Cat
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Don't let the dated looks of the book throw you, this is a masterpiece! It explains Bernoulli's principle and other lifesaving concepts in great detail. The author has a great sense of imagery and really provides some in-depth perusal of numerous techniques. It's an absolute must-have for any pilot.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding Book 31. Dezember 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is by far the best book written on what is actually going on when piloting an aircraft. A few sections are somewhat out of date, such as the lengthy yet compelling section in favor of tricycle gear aircraft. Reading this book will greatly improve your understanding of why we take the actions we do every time we climb into the cockpit, and make you a better pilot.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE pilot's Bible! 6. Juli 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Without a doubt the best book on piloting I've read. Reminds us of the importants of old fashion flying techniques that our young flight instructors never learned.

5.0 von 5 Sternen the best book on flying that I ever read. 27. April 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I began flying in 1944 and am still an active pilot in 1999. The is clearly the best book ever on how a plane flys and how you fly a plane. How I missed it for all these years, I will never know.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I used this book in ground school at Rhode Island State College (before it was University) in 1940 and in flight school in 1941.Peggy Lennox(my instructor)told me to take to bed and learn from it .I wish we still used the stick instead of the wheel.this book had the greatest impression on my flight attitude of any book I ever studied, and I was 21 yrs of age 8 months before Pearl Harbor.
