A compilation of Barry Schiff's monthly column in AOPA Pilot, the popular aviation periodical, these books contain favorite articles from over the years in three volumes that are arranged by subject. These articles are pulled from his more than 26,000 flight hours in 260 types of aircraft to assemble volumes filled with Schiff's vast knowledge and experience with teaching pilots. The first volume of the series covers such diverse topics as slip tips, takeoff techniques, crosswind landing, scud running, and multiengine flying.
