Aviation Books and Manuals we use in our Flight Training Syllabus:

There are many Free Aviation Books available for download on our site. They work in conjunction with our Flight Training Syllabus!

In addition to our specially designed training syllabus, we have developed quite a few other in-house manuals that we are very proud of! The following are available FREE only to enrolled students! They are specifically geared towards our training aircraft and for flying out of Long Island MacArthur airport! Be sure to get your copy from your flight instructor... they will greatly help you throughout your flight training.
   
VFR Communications Manual - Communicating on the radio can often be very intimidating for a student pilot! This manual will guide you through the process, and explain the when, the why, and the what to expect of radio communications.

Maneuvers Manual - The FAA has clearly established a set a maneuvers and tasks that must be performed in order to pass your Flight Check and earn your Pilot Certificate. We have prepared a step-by-step guide of these procedures and detailed descriptions of how to most efficiently practice them. Study this, and you will ace your check ride in no time!

Pre-solo Written Exam - Prior to solo flight, everyone must complete a pre-solo written exam. Ours not only covers the basics that every pilot should know, but also incorporates many aspects specific to our training aircraft and our home airport! After you have completed this exam, you will have the knowledge needed to safely solo the airplane!
