What you need to know about how your airplane works. Focused on practical value to the pilot, Aircraft Systems takes you on a thoroughly illustrated tour of the systems that make your plane work, giving you step-by-step procedures and troubleshooting tips that improve safety and cut risk, no matter what the situation. Pilot/mechanic David A. Lombardo, author of Advanced Aircraft Systems, presents crucial information on systems in single- and light twin-engine planes. No matter what page you turn to, you'll find fully

illustrated, system-by-system information that will help you: make better piloting decisions both in the air and on the ground; avoid risk with a better understanding of preflight inspections; troubleshoot in-flight problems and handle emergencies in any system; cut costs with better maintenance, improved communication with mechanics, and correct choices in engine overhauls; recognize and

overcome bad interactions between systems; improve interpersonal relationships with passengers and crew. Full of life-saving information, from the anatomy of a tire, to emergency electrical system failure load shedding, Aircraft Systems delivers the critical, confidence-building guidance that you'll rely on every time you enter the cockpit.


A pilot-oriented guide to the major systems in single- and light twin- engine planes. The updated edition reduces the original 31 chapters to 15 subject-specific chapters, and adds new information on subjects such as electromechanical actuators, the chemistry of gasoline, and engine oil analysis.
