9780956072337: THE FLYING DICTIONARY: A Fascinating and Unparalleled Primer (Air Crashes and Miracle Landings)

Captivating reading for anyone fascinated by aviation, and an unparalleled primer for those thinking of learning to fly or concerned with aviation and safety. Not only does it cover today's world, but also adds an important historical perspective. Explains basic procedures such as takeoff and landing,noting the V-speeds required for safety at the various stages. Hidden among the more technical entries are many with fascinating if not invaluable information for passengers. Also, for the benefit of younger readers and the curious, some non-aviation entries are included. The technical entries are easy to read as they were initially composed as the glossary and appendix to Air Crashes and Miracle Landings, where the aim was to explain the aviation terms simply but properly.

Review :

Although there are items in the book that gave me new information, many of the entries in the dictionary would be in common use by people involved in aviation for a number of years. Perhaps this is what give the book its selling point; for anyone starting out with a career in aerospace or the airlines this gives a good introduction to some of the well-used aerospace terms and their backgrounds, along with an insight into the air domain.

For those with more experience, it provides new facts or refreshers to browse through. The book is well written and easy to read with just over 150 pages of text. So, in summary, as a reference book it is limited in its content, as a quick guide into the world of aerospace it covers a good breadth of common terms and history in a form that is easy to read and to digest. --Martin Downes, The Aerospace Professional published by the Royal Aeronautical Society; March 2011, p25.

A SMALL PRIMER for those considering learning to fly, or interested in aviation and safety, explaining basic procedures and many other aspects including such oddities as GKN - Guest Keen & Nettlefolds, Directed Energy Weapons and Disinsection. You will certainly learn from this very cheap softback. --Aeroplane, April 2011
