True stories from experienced pilots.

101 Lessons from the Sky focusses on commercial and air transport aviation – thanks to the pilots who shared their failings and misadventures.  It uses stories about the Boeing 737, and 767, the CRJ-700, the Beech 99, the ERJ-145, the A320, a Lear jet and a Gulfstream, the CRJ-200, the Airbus 319, and others.

Covering airline checklists, complacency, maintenance issues, poor load planning, limitations with didpsticks and fatigue, the book contains easy-to-read true accounts of potentially catastrophic incidents narrowly averted. These are the lessons learnt by the pilots, the cabin crew, the ground crew, the engineers, and the co-pilots.

An essential read for all current and future pilots.
