Fly toward pilot certification with these real-world scenario exercises Although PC-based flight simulations have been available for 30 years, many pilots, instructors, and flight schools don't understand how best to use these tools in real-world flight training and pilot proficiency programs. This invaluable reference bridges the gap between simulation tools and real-world situations by presenting hands-on, scenario-based exercises and training tips for the private pilot certificate and instrument rating. As the first of its kind based on FAA-Industry Training Standards (FITS), this book steers its focus on a scenario-based curriculum that emphasizes real-world situations. Experienced pilot and author Bruce Williams ultimately aims to engage the pilot, reinforce the "realistic" selling point of PC-based flight simulations, while also complementing the FAA-approved FITS syllabi. Serves as essential reading for pilots who want to make effective use of simulation in their training while expanding their skill level and enjoyment of flying Covers private pilot real-world scenarios and instrument rating scenarios Includes a guide to recommended websites and other resources Features helpful charts as well as a glossary You'll take off towards pilot certification with this invaluable book by your side.

The Gut Balance Revolution

Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good!

Research shows that gut microflora and intestinal microbiota play a pivotal role in weight maintenance through its influence on metabolism, appetite regulation, energy expenditure, and endocrine regulation. Gut flora imbalance is why so many people can't lose weight despite exercising more and eating less. In The Gut Balance Revolution, Dr. Gerard Mullin--the foremost authority on digestive health and nutritional medicine--explains how to prevent leaky gut, inflammation, and insulin resistance, which are major contributors to obesity. This book will teach you how to rebalance the gut microbiome using a simple three-step method: Reboot: Weed out fat-forming bad bacteria by eliminating foods that make them grow and promote inflammation, insulin, and fat accumulation, and reignite fat burning metabolism with exercise and dietary supplements. Rebalance: Reseed your gut with goods bugs and fertilize these friendly flora to establish a healthy gut ecology, reduce stress, and reinstitute a healthy lifestyle including sleep hygiene. Renew: Carry this lifestyle adjustment forward and maintain your weight with good eating habits with allowances for pleasure foods. The book features step-by-step meal plans, shopping lists, restaurant guides, recipes, recommendations on dietary supplements, and exercises for each phase so you can easily reboot, rebalance, and renew your health.

Advanced Flight Dynamics with Elements of Flight Control

Author: Nandan K. Sinha,N. Ananthkrishnan

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 1498746063

Category: Science

Page: 348

View: 5454

Advanced Flight Dynamics aim to integrate the subjects of aircraft performance, trim and stability/control in a seamless manner. Advanced Flight Dynamics highlights three key and unique viewpoints. Firstly, it follows the revised and corrected aerodynamic modeling presented previously in recent textbook on Elementary Flight Dynamics. Secondly, it uses bifurcation and continuation theory, especially the Extended Bifurcation Analysis (EBA) procedure devised by the authors, to blend the subjects of aircraft performance, trim and stability, and flight control into a unified whole. Thirdly, rather than select one control design tool or another, it uses the generalized Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion (NDI) methodology to illustrate the fundamental principles of flight control. Advanced Flight Dynamics covers all the standard airplane maneuvers, various types of instabilities normally encountered in flight dynamics and illustrates them with real-life airplane data and examples, thus bridging the gap between the teaching of flight dynamics/ control theory in the university and its practice in airplane design bureaus. The expected reader group for this book would ideally be senior undergraduate and graduate students, practicing aerospace/flight simulation engineers/scientists from industry as well as researchers in various organizations. Key Features: Focus on unified nonlinear approach, with nonlinear analysis tools. Provides an up-to-date, corrected, and unified presentation of aircraft trim, stability and control analysis including nonlinear phenomena and closed-loop stability analysis. Contains a computational tool and real-life example carried through the chapters. Includes complementary nonlinear dynamic inversion control approach, with relevant aircraft examples. Fills the gap in the market for a text including non-linear flight dynamics and continuation methods.

The Tragedy of Flight 242

The gripping true tale of a devastating plane crash, the investigation into its causes, and the race to prevent similar disasters in the future. On the afternoon of April 4, 1977, Georgia housewife Sadie Burkhalter Hurst looked out her front door to see a frantic stranger running toward her, his clothes ablaze, and behind him the mangled fuselage of a passenger plane that had just crashed in her yard. The plane, a Southern Airways DC-9-31, had been carrying eighty-one passengers and four crew members en route to Atlanta when it entered a massive thunderstorm cell that turned into a dangerous cocktail of rain, hail, and lightning. Forced down onto a highway, the plane cut a swath of devastation through the small town of New Hope, breaking apart and killing bystanders on the ground before coming to rest in Hurst's front yard. Ultimately, only twenty-two people would survive the crash of Flight 242, and urgent questions immediately arose. What caused the pilots to fly into the storm instead of away from it? Could the crash have been prevented? Southern Storm addresses these issues and many more, offering a fascinating insider's look at this dramatic disaster and the systemic overhauls that followed it.
