High Tech Flying
Glass cockpits, NextGen, iPads, drones -- these and other advances of the Information Age are revolutionizing aviation. High Tech Flying examines how these advances are impacting aviation and gives pilots the tools and knowledge they need to fly safely and efficiently in this new environment. High Tech Flying explains these technologies in plain English and from the pilot`s perspective, and explains how they work together to create a new way of flying in the Information Age.
The first chapters examine two technologies which have really "taken off" in the last five years - NextGen and personal devices such as tablet computers and smartphones. Next High Tech Flying examines “The Glass Cockpit Revolution” - how it happened, what it means for pilots, and how to use glass cockpit technology to fly safely and efficiently. It includes chapters on “Mastering the Glass Cockpit” and “Flight Planning In the Information Age.”
It is vital that flight instructors understand these advances, not only because they fly in this environment but because it is their job to communicate this knowledge to the pilot community. That is why High Tech Flying includes a chapter on “Flight Training in the Information Age.” Because checklists are a vital part of flying safely and effectively in the Information Age High Tech Flying dedicates a separate chapter to their creation and use. High Tech Flying concludes with a chapter on “The Future,” which tries to predict where the on-going digital revolution will take aviation.
High Tech Flying is available online at Amazon as a paperback or as a Kindle e-book, and in many pilot shops around the country. For more information please visit our website at www.hightechflying.com.
