Airplane Flying Handbook - 2016
Printed Version Available
Let me know if you want a printed and bound version of this book. Sometimes it is nice to have a printed version in hand - rather than a digital version to read only at your computer. I can print it on 8.5 x 11" paper, double-sided, using my color laser printer, and bind it with clear plastic covers and a "VeloBind" binder for 20 cents/page. The finished product looks great.
