Private Pilot Manual by Paul Berge, CFII

Over 37 years in the making (that's how long it took the author to learn this stuff), the Private Pilot Beginner's Manual (for Sport Pilots, too) by Paul Berge is finally out!

Written in an easy-to-read, amusing style, this 320-page illustrated book takes the beginning aviator from "This is an airplane" through all the subjects required to become a Private Pilot or a Sport Pilot, including aerodynamics, airplane controls, airports, airspace, aviation weather, Federal Aviation Regulations, air traffic control, Weight & Balance (a normally deadly dull subject brought to life here), cross-country planning, aircraft performance and navigation.

This book is ideal for the beginner (hence the name) and for instructors looking for a student manual that won't scare off future pilots with overly technical dissertations.

Instructor, ground school and FBO queries welcome.

Now available at Barnes & Noble online

Inside The Circle by Paul Berge
It’s 1937. The Depression lingers as Dust Bowl and SPAM enter the American lexicon. War begins in Spain. Amelia Earhart is lost over the Pacific, and the King of England, unable to cope with her loss, abandons the throne to marry some woman he pretends to love. More importantly, Prohibition is over, leaving thousands unemployed. Gangsters, G-men and barnstormers who’d once made a respectable living in the bootlegging trade turn now to less interesting work. For pilots this means airline jobs, except for one enterprising flyer, Kate Strauss, who can’t qualify for the airlines, because No Women Allowed in the cockpit. Kate, along with a devoted circle of friends and lovers, keeps a small midwestern flight operation aloft by the numbers…the numbers racket, that is. Money laundering, Chicago mobsters, biplanes, newsreel footage, running boards on a blood red Ford V8, ten cent gas and nickel cigars, plus a few Hollywood celebrities just to give it class…it’s all Inside The Circle. (Rated PG-13 for gangland violence, crude language and shameless smoking in public.) Sold through Amazon.com, Lulu.com and eBay.

New (ish)

You'll laugh, you'll sneeze, you'll get detention in Sr. Belladonna's class. But that's no excuse. Order your copy of Artie Azzetti & Me today....no, today.
