THE PILOT’S GUIDE TO THE MODERN AIRLINE COCKPIT | 2nd EDITION |  ASA

modern-cockpit

This book introduces you to the fundamentals of today’s airline cockpit before you enter training at an airline company.

Unlike the typical ‘systems’ manual, this book places you in the left seat and takes you step-by-step through a challenging line flight. It teaches about the modern airline cockpit in terms of what you already know as a commercial multi-engine instrument pilot. You will learn how to use the flight management system (FMS) and autopilot to plan and follow an assigned route. You will learn to deal with realistic enroute scenarios such as vectors, intercepts, holds, diversions, late descents and many others. Along the way, you will learn how to decide which automation features to use and when, the limits of the automation’s capabilities, how to monitor the progress of your flight and remain in-the-loop while the automation performs its work.
