All pilots eventually need to perform some type of math calculation in their heads while flying. Here is a book to help sharpen those mental skills and operate better in today’s technological environment.
With the increased use of electronic gadgets in airplanes, the pilot's mind is one of the most often overlooked “computers” available in the cockpit. Mental Math for Pilots helps rev up your brainpower, allowing you to quickly process complex equations while expanding mental acuity towards a wide range of practical math problems frequently used in flight. Quick recall and retention aids are provided for calculating temperature conversions, crosswind components, time-speed-distance problems, reciprocal headings, visual descent points, and many more. Complex equations are explained in straightforward terms and helpful tips, calculations, and formulas to sharpen math skills and mentally keep you ahead of the game.
Whether you are preparing for a pilot interview, gearing up for a checkride, or just looking to enhance your aviation math skills, this is a must-read for every aviator and will help you become a more professional and precise pilot. Softcover, glossary, indexed and illustrated, 6"x9", 116 pages.
