Prescribed Reading

There is quite a bit of reading that one needs to do when starting out with flight instruction.  On the list so far are the following…

  • Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (PHAK)
  • Airplane Flying Handbook
  • Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM)
  • United States Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR)

So far I’m about 150 pages into the PHAK.  So far it has covered the history of aviation and we are beginning to get into the principles of flight.  The reading is somewhat slow, but I’m looking forward to getting in the cockpit and begin learning some practical skills.
