Here is what I learnt while I studying the book “The Complete Private Pilot”. Most note text are in English, and may not translate to Chinese any more.
It is a great book that everyone who is or want to become a private pilot should read it.
In this section of studying ‘The Complete Private Pilot’, I do learned more about what should concern about the airport, normal procedures and inflight emergency, and much more about humen factors / aeronautical factors, futher more I learned much much more about Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM) and basis of Risk Managment.
This chapter is a little chaos in my oppinon, the athor mix up airport (include its marking and lighting) and procedures into one, and I do prefer it should be seperated to at least two piceses.
Further more, after study this section, I also have a mid-term exam for myself. In order to test how well I learned from lesson 1 to 5 (bedore weather and other chapters). During the mid-term exam, I found a lot of knowledge that I may not really extablished before. Here is a list what I should strength afterward:
- Gound reference manuevers which for wind correction: rectangular course, fly around a point and S-Turns.
- Terms that related altitude, true altitude, absolute altitude and density altitude.
- Magnatic compass related, include magnatic deviation / variation, errors, etc.
I would learn more knowladge and strength the list later on.
